It’s a rivalry as old as time. (Ok, that might be an exaggeration, but it’s definitely been going on since 2000.) Digital signatures vs. electronic signatures. Security vs. convenience. The choice wasn’t easy!

digital signatures vs. electronic signaturesJust in case you don’t know the differences between digital signatures and electronic signatures, here’s what you need to know.

Digital signatures are the most secure type of signature out there. They come with a lot of fancy cryptographic evidence. Just like you’d be able to find evidence that a safe had been broken into, these signatures show if someone tries to break into the document and change things.

Now that you know a little about digital signatures, I’ll introduce you to the digital signature’s bitter rival: the electronic signature. Electronic signatures are really easy to use. You don’t have anything to download or install, and you can get documents signed in minutes. Sounds great, right? Well, yes… except that simple electronic signatures aren’t nearly as secure as digital signatures.

So how do you choose between these two very important features? The great news is that you don’t have to! SIGNiX provides all of the security of digital signatures while offering the convenience of electronic signatures.
