BRUSSELS – March 19, 2015 - Zetes, which provides user identification solutions and Belgian eIDs, has launched a cloud-based digital signature platform that simplifies how businesses and consumers can replace hand-written signatures with electronic versions. The cloud-based platform provides any-device accessibility – web, computer or mobile – and gives businesses faster time to revenue, greater cost savings, and an improved customer experience.

In partnership with iText, the provider of world’s most widely used PDF development library, and GlobalSign, a leading provider of identity and security services, Zetes developed the eaZySign solution. The new eaZySign platform solves two of the most common challenges to digital signature adoption by making it easy to manage and apply digital signatures while ensuring the signatures maintain the appropriate level of trust and legality.

aZySign is customizable to support a wide range of application needs. It is platform and operating system agnostic, allowing the signing process to be performed via web portals, desktops, and the most popular mobile platforms (iOS, Android) for easy access by end users.

The signatures rely on Belgian electronic identity cards (e-ID) or GlobalSign PKI-based credentials, and comply with PDF Advanced Electronic Signatures (PAdES) standards, as established by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).
