San Francisco, CA (PressExposure) July 22, 2008 -- ARX, a leading provider of digital signature solutions, and ChosenSecurity, Inc., the leading provider of on-demand digital identity management services, today announced a global partnership to combine their respective standard digital-signature and digital-identity offerings.
Under the agreement, users of ARXâs CoSignÂ® digital signature (standard electronic signature) solution will have the option to employ ChosenSecurityâs PKI services for digital identity management. This combination provides businesses with a secure and cost effective method to sign electronic transactions over the Internet with standard digital signatures. The primary enablers include CoSign PSFâ¢ (portable signature format), which allows users to retain and verify the proof of identity, intent, and transaction integrity over the life of a record without any proprietary software, and ChosenSecurityâs web-trusted ID certificates.
"This advancement enables our customers to incorporate ChosenSecurityâs digital identity services, within the affordable, secure, and easy-to-use digital-signatures that CoSign is known for," explained John Marchioni, VP Business Development, Americas, ARX. âWhen people sign digitally and securely, they not only get speed and convenience, they scale their business processes rapidly and economically with the proper controls.â
"With CoSign, ChosenSecurity services will be seamlessly connected with several productivity applications that most companies have already invested in for their internal, B2B and B2C electronic processes," said Dean Coclin, VP Business Development, ChosenSecurity. âAn added benefit for our customers is CoSign's elimination of the need for client-side PKI tokens, smartcards, and software. As a result, our customers can digitally sign securely, and without having to carry authentication tokens, while roaming.â
