So why Secure e-Signing?
Fraud is rapidly increasing around the globe and the fraudsters are continuously looking for alternative ways of defrauding companies and individuals. When physically signing a document, organizations can perform identity checks in-person to ensure the signer is who they say they are. But when you move into the online world this is not possible. We sign documents for some of our most important company and individual reasons from a new contract award with a company, to a new job or buying a house. All these use cases could be vulnerable to fraud. How do we know the person on the end of the email address we have just sent that important contract to, is who they say they are?
This is where DocuSign Identify and OneID® come in. This integration ensures that when an individual signs a document you know they are who they say they are even before they can access any information contained in the document, without building in additional checks and friction of digitized identity documentation which can of course be forged. The check is simple and takes seconds, ensuring you know with certainty that the signer is who they say they are.
Electronic signing is now commonplace but is still vulnerable to fraud. Digital identities allow companies to know with certainty who is signing a document online and prevent the potential of fraudulent identities. The OneID® process is simple, available to all users of online banking which is over 40 million people in the UK and can be done in seconds, giving organisations the peace of mind that their important documents are signed by the person they expected.
