ARX, the global leader in digital signature solutions, welcomes the findings of a legal guide recently published by Michalsons, a leading South African specialist law firm, about electronic signatures in general and CoSign in particular. The report found that “CoSign is unique in that it can produce both ordinary electronic signatures and advanced electronic signatures.”
CoSign’s ordinary electronic signatures can be used whenever an ordinary electronic signature is sufficient according to South African law, including for commercial transactions, company administration, financial services, credit agreements and insurance services. It can also be used to apply advanced electronic signatures (together with a digital certificate issued by an accredited Certificate Authority such as the South African Post Office) whenever an advanced electronic signature is legally required, including for credit agreements and pension fund administration.
CoSign helps businesses complete the automation of their content management processes and move to a completely paper-free working environment. It eliminates the need to print, sign and scan documents, as they are signed and transferred electronically inside and outside of the organization, saving both time and money. CoSign’s electronic signatures can be easily integrated in existing workflows and file formats without changing the organization’s business applications and IT infrastructure.
Attorney David Luyt, author of the legal guide, says: “This innovative solution offers a unique centralized approach to managing electronic signatures, signatories and private keys. This approach allows you to easily install your own private keys, which is important in the context of South African law specifically if you want to implement advanced electronic signatures.”
