Securely Send Documents
So, you can legally sign digital documents, that’s pretty neat. But this document signing certificate does more than that! By digitally signing your document with this cert, your recipient can verify your identity and know if the document was tampered with. Basically, if a hacker tampered with the document you signed with your DigiCert Document Signing Certificate, your recipient would receive a warning that the document was tampered with.
In addition, DigiCert protects your private key that you use to digitally sign your documents using two-factor authentication. The two factors are a password that you create and encrypted USB token that is physically shipped to you after your purchase of the certificate. This means that only you (the owner of the USB and password) can sign a document with your certificate. And, DigiCert, a trusted leader in the industry, verifies who you are before issuing the certificate. Making it a more secure and trusted way to sign and send documents.
