Learn about Microsoft Digital Signature Control Options
More and more companies are conducting business electronically because it is easier, saves time and can even save money. As a result, digital signatures are also being used more frequently as a way to legally bind parties to their transaction. These signatures are used to verify the person’s identity who signed the document, which confirms that the document wasn’t modified in any way after the signature was applied.
At Comodo, we understand your need for digital signature control and know that you need to provide security to those signing items electronically. You want something that is legal and will bind the signer to the agreement and the document but need everyone to stay secure and use encryption technology to mitigate the risks associated with electronic transactions. With our signature control systems, you’ll be able to do that in a new and simple way.
If you want to create a digital signature, you need a digital certificate, which helps prove your identity to the other party. While it doesn’t have to be obtained from a reputable CA (certificate authority), it should be. If you don’t have a certificate, Microsoft offers them and other advanced signature features integrated into their Office product in the Office Marketplace. However, we also provide CAs so you can keep everything with one vendor and make things easier on yourself.
Microsoft digital signature control is the same as for other applications. The steps are as follows:
- Go to Office Backstage
- Click the Insert tab
- Create a signature stamp or line
While the stamps aren’t used as frequently in the US, they can still be used in America and may work well for those who wish to create something with a small icon/picture. If you’d like to learn more about digital signature control, please contact us today.
