SIGNiX, the leading digital signature provider in North America, has also been a pioneer in creating new business opportunities for notaries with its in person eNotary product and its RON capability for notaries in Virginia, the first state to adopt this revolutionary technology.

The top independent broker-dealers in America rely on the superior security and data privacy of our patented digital signature process.
Obviously, we spend a lot of time talking about signatures here at SIGNiX. When it comes to our business, we try to explain the difference between the mere image of a signature associated with a digital document (which is how a lot of simple e-signatures work) and the sophisticated exchange of public and private cryptographic keys that make our true digital signature more secure, more private, and more legally durable.
The point here, whether we're talking pen-to-paper or PDF, is that a signature is so much more than a mark on a page. It's even more than the complex legal ideas it represents. A signature is an artifact that says something about who we are as people, and what we want in a moment of our lives.

Back in 2014, we asked eminent data privacy and legal expert Timothy Reiniger to discuss how SIGNIX digital signature technology provides critical safeguards and secure data access for health information exchanges. His comments have proved prescient and durable.
After relying on ink signatures for decades, highly regulated industries like real estate, financial services, healthcare, banking, and government have finally begun to adopt paperless workflows in the past several years. As these industries enter a phase of mainstream adoption, they must ensure that data and legal evidence is reliably captured, efficiently processed, and independently available for years, decades, or even generations.
True digital signatures—such as those enabled by the SIGNiX platform—provide the highest levels of security, data privacy, and legal evidence capture available. But how exactly does a digital signature outperform simple, proprietary e-signature at the technological level?
Lindsay Edwards, lending manager of Access Community Credit Union, was frustrated by the credit union’s paper loan application process. It was a hassle both for members and credit union employees, and she needed a solution.
Chief Architect Robert Oswalt invented the core technology underpinning the SIGNiX digital signature platform, and has written or co-written the eight patents we hold. We interviewed Robert about the challenges he faced in the beginning, surprises along the way, and the importance of trust.
It’s useful to divide the entire spectrum of e-signatures into two camps: simple e-signatures with lightweight legal durability, and powerful digital signatures which provide security, data privacy, and superior legal evidence.
