Identity and security company Nexus Group and Cryptomathic, a leader in secure digital signing, have combined their technologies to offer an integrated trusted electronic identity (eID) and e-signing solution that delivers eIDAS-certified qualified electronic signatures.
“Digital signatures are one of the low hanging fruits for an organization to focus on when digitizing their business processes. Nexus already offers solutions for digital signatures both in the EU and India. To further address the extra-high security demands of organizations such as government departments, banks and trust service providers, Nexus has entered a partnership with Cryptomathic,” says Magnus Malmström, CEO of Nexus.
The highest assurance level
The EU regulation eIDAS defines three levels of electronic signatures: simple, advanced and qualified. Advanced electronic signatures are proficient for most use cases, but sometimes the highest assurance level of qualified electronic signatures (QES) is needed.
”Cryptomathic Signer, which is our remote signing solution for QES, is already used by multiple eIDAS-qualified trust service providers, and so is the Nexus certificate authority platform. Our new joint signature solution, which incorporates Cryptomathic’s Qualified Signature Creation Device (QSCD), can be neatly integrated with existing business workflows and authentication mechanisms,” says Guillaume Forget, managing director at Cryptomathic GmbH.
What you see is what you sign
The end users sign via an intuitive what you see is what you sign functionality, providing the most convenient user experience, as well as strong non-repudiation.
“This joint solution is an excellent addition to our own remote e-signing services, which are cloud-based and create advanced electronic signatures. Our own e-signing services are very cost-effective and meet the security needs of most organizations, regardless of size or industry. But we are very pleased to now also be able to meet the needs of organizations with the highest security demands,” says Malmström.
Several existing customers
The new joint solution already has several customers, such as one of Europe’s largest postal services companies.
“Together with Nexus, we are pleased to offer a seamlessly integrated solution that provides the complete management of the trusted identities that are required for delivering QES services. Our joint customers benefit from this integration to use QES internally or offer a value-added signing service to their customers,” says Forget.
