Signer authentication matters.
With Adobe Sign, you get everything you need to comply with a range of signer authentication and document validation requirements. For most transactions, a standard e-signature is enough. It can be authenticated using one or more factors such as email, text message, or password, and does not involve a certificate. Other transactions require more advanced forms of authentication — each signer is issued a digital ID by a trusted Certificate Authority (CA), and signing is backed by public key infrastructure (PKI) technology.
Meet the world's first open, cloud-based digital signatures.
With six billion signature transactions a year, we are the undisputed leaders in secure digital documents. We invented PDF. We drove the first open standards for digital signatures. And we're setting global standards again for digital signing using mobile devices and the web with the Cloud Signature Consortium. Our real-world solutions let you work with high-assurance digital IDs that are easy-to-use, easy-to-deploy, and internationally compliant.
