Benefits of Document Signing Certificates

A document signing certificate is an indispensable part of today’s world. Both public and private sectors digitally sign electronic documents in their daily operations and need a digital signature for enhanced security, seamless editing, and quick sharing. Below are just a few benefits of document signing:

Bulletproof Encryption and Unrivaled Security

A digital document signing certificate is virtually impossible to forge. Only a hypothetical quantum computer could theoretically break the 2048-bit key encryption.

Extra Protection for Your Keys

Digital documents include an iKeyUSB token that stores your private key. It also provides two-factor authentication, taking digital signature security to a new level.

Unquestionable Credibility

Electronic documents that verify and confirm the sender’s identity via an extensive vetting process are legally binding. When you digitally sign PDF documents, they comply with the U.S. Federal ESIGN Act and various international laws.

Adobe® Acrobat Document Integrity

Sectigo document signing certificates allow organizations to encrypt Adobe Acrobat documents with digital signatures. Certification originates from the Adobe Certified Document Services (CDS) or the Certificate Authorities, members of the Adobe Approved Trust List (AATL).

Business Validation and Improved Trust

Business Validation gives partners and customers a higher level of trust and assurance that the document is signed by a representative of an authentic organization operating in good faith.

Full Browser Compatibility

Any document signing certificate is fully compatible with most browsers and desktop platforms. You can use it for Microsoft products and open-source alternatives such as Libre Office and sign your documents on mobile devices.

How Do Document Signing Certificates Work?

When someone alters a digital document, the recipient receives a notification. Digital signatures support timestamping, offering extra security.

A document signing certificate relies on the digital signature to validate the sender and protect data. Digital signatures are similar to handwritten counterparts, but unlike physical or e-signatures, digital signatures are practically impossible to counterfeit.

When you digitally sign a document, you enable the ultra-secure PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) protocol that uses advanced hash algorithms to generate a pair of keys.

The private key makes your digital signature unique, while the public key decrypts your digital signature, allowing the document recipient to open and view the file. They can also check the document’s author credentials to ensure document authenticity.

A certificate authority like Sectigo oversees the entire document signing process. This third-party entity offers digital document signing certificates that meet all the issuing and security compliance guidelines.

Excellent customer service when I ordered the wrong cert! The support team then helped me get the correct cert and refunded me on the incorrect cert I bought! Very fast and a happy customer.

One of the most reliable SSL brands. If you need to secure subdomains and can afford it, don’t think twice. Get it.

June 12, 2020

The price seems fair for an EV certificate, especially the two-year deal. Unlike my previous provider, which I won’t advertise here, at SSL Dragon, the buying steps are easier and better explained.

Always a pleasure doing business with SSL Dragon. Thawte certificates consistently deliver the highest encryption and customer trust.

Was assigned to secure several NGO sites. Picked this certificate because of a higher warranty and reasonable price. It’s always a pleasure to work with SSL Dragon.

Simply the best. Easy to buy and configure. Plenty of features. Can display the site seal in different languages as well.

A top-class product from a reputable company. Credits to SSL Dragon as well, for a smooth buying experience and excellent price.

This is the third SSL Certificate I buy from SSL Dragon, and the first one from GeoTrust. All I can say is the certs work as described in the specs, and the support is very friendly.

The SSL wizard recommended this certificate for our e-stores. We’re already on the third renewal, and during all these years, didn’t have a single issue with it.
