The digital tools powering today’s modern businesses make work faster, easier, and more accurate. But there’s still one tool that many companies have yet to adopt – the electronic signature.
See how electronic signatures equal big benefits for everyone in your organization.
• Business leaders say that improving document processes could yield 23% reduction in business/compliance risk
• Research shows a potential 30% reduction in cost and 36% increase in revenue.
• 45% of business leaders say departmental productivity would increase
• 72% agree that improving document processes would increase customer satisfaction and/or increase brand value.
With the right solution, electronic signatures are cost effective and simple to deploy. Perhaps because they seem so logical in today’s digital world, some organizations tend to overlook e-signatures to reduce costs, improve productivity and mitigate risk.
Research and customer experiences show that with e-signatures, organizations can:
• Shorten sales cycles from eight days to three hours
• Reduce costs by approximately 30% and increase revenue by more that 35%
• Significantly improve hiring and onboarding – in some cases, as much as 80% less time to process new hires
Here are some of the key reasons why e-signatures are essential to any organization’s move to digital processes.
Electronic signatures can have a dramatic impact on your organization’s digital transformation initiatives, helping to increase productivity, accelerate sales, strengthen collaboration and simplify a wide range of processes across all departments.
However to truly leverage e-signatures, you must ensure that your solutions adhere to the most stringent guidelines for security and regulatory compliance. Here are the most important and pertinent questions to ask potential vendors about security.
In this Forrester study, interviewees described how they have converted their formerly paper processes into digital processes with Adobe Sign, reducing, among other things, the amount of forms that need to be printed and shipped.

• 28x faster time to business
• Reduced 1.5 hours per transaction of manual signature steps
• Cost savings of $6 per transaction on average
Overall, the Adobe Sign investment improves the signature experience for internal and external audiences, simplifying these previously manual processes and making it easier and secure to get documents signed.

The endpoint security market continues to expand with vendors old and new marketing their solutions as “next generation” game-changers. However, closer inspection reveals that many new solutions have been built on old platforms, many of which still rely heavily on signature-based detection and obsolete architecture.

Most security effectiveness tests take a sample of known malicious content, and see how many threats each solution can catch. Unfortunately, stopping known threats — those with a known signature, reputation or destination — isn't enough to protect real-world networks.
So we designed a new test, along with leading independent test laboratory Miercom*, that simulates a typical day on a network like yours. We put a large sample of web traffic of unknown nature through our TRITON-powered Websense® Web Security Gateway solution, along with competing web gateways and firewalls. Each solution had a fair and equal chance to analyze, classify and block threats as it would on your network.

Document signing certificates enable organizations to digitally sign Adobe®, Microsoft Office® and other document types, marking them with visual trust indicators that verify the publisher’s identity—an indication that the document has not been altered.
With document signing certificates organizations can authenticate documents, allowing for secure and efficient electronic transmission of official papers including legal documents, invoices, engineering plans and diagrams, diplomas, charters and more while reducing costs associated with printing and maintaining paper files.
This white paper will discuss:
The history of document signing
What digital signatures are and how they function
The benefits and objectives of implementing document signing certificates
Real world use cases of document signing certificates
