Topaz Systems and WWNotary have partnered to provide a Web-based electronic notarization product. With WWNotary’s DigaSign electronic notarization product, users in industries such as real estate, government, law, insurance, title and banking can add their unique biometric signatures to documents and processes transacted with DigaSign’s digital signature and encryption technology.
WWNotary’s DigaSign Web-based notarization service utilizes the latest encryption and security technology to ensure that a document remains confidential and cannot be altered once posted to the central server. Because it is Web-based, DigaSign can be used by parties in different cities, states and countries to finalize notarized documents instantly.
DigaSign’s secure, patent-pending technology exceeds federal mandates such as ESIGN and UETA and state regulations regarding Internet security, encryption and the use of electronic and digital signatures, according to the company. On Nov. 1, 2004, DigaSign was used to complete the first electronic real estate closing in the state of Texas, and one of less than 10 such acts ever performed in the United States.
“DigaSign and Topaz signature technology together create an outstanding tool to easily notarize critical documents electronically,” said USNA President Marc Aronson. “The United States Notary Association is supportive of these developments and monitoring them closely for their impact on the notary profession.”
The SigPlus software is available for download from topazsystems.com.
