Client Authentication is the process by which users securely access a server or remote computer by exchanging a Digital ID. Networks and web services can be configured to only allow access to particular Digital IDs. Authentication prevents unauthorized access and enhances current security. It can be used for in-browser client authentication to VPNs, smart card technology, cloud applications, and mobile devices. PersonalSign Certificates are approved Digital Certificates for various online services including the FDA ESG and NAESB Electronic Industry Registry.
GlobalSign PersonalSign Digital IDs are trusted by Microsoft Office systems and allow you to create digital signatures. Applying a digital signature to a document proves the information originated with the signer and that the document has not been altered since the document was signed, ensuring document integrity. This allows for secure electronic document work flows, eliminates time and resources spent by replacing paper-based work flows. It also meets compliance requirements associated with electronic work flows. When applying a digital signature, you can choose to insert an image file containing a handwritten signature or other image of choice. Visit Digital Signatures for Microsoft® Office to learn more.
