Tamper Evident Digital Signatures

An electronic signature is only as good as the security that protects it. After all, what good is a contract if someone can easily tamper with it?

With SIGNiX’s digital signatures, documents are tamper-evident not just at the end of the signing process, but from the moment the transaction is started. This provides evidence that the first signer didn’t alter the document before it was sent to the second signer. Pretty neat, right?

If you’re dealing with important documents or high-value transactions, advanced tamper evidence is vital. In fact, many banks and credit unions require this kind of tamper evidence to protect their customers.
