Esign Inc.: Encryption Technology at its Best
Dr. Mohammed Shaikh Co-Founder & President
With technology advances and rapid data growth, enterprises are going digital. Traditional workflow processes are becoming increasingly tedious and compromising data security; attackers are abusing digital signatures to illicitly access documents and damage enterprise reputation. In such a scenario, companies are on a constant lookout for advanced software to assure document security through encryption technology.
As a provider of digital certificate-based solutions, Goleta-based Esign Inc aids organizations to easily and securely manage their documents. “Technologies like cloud and mobility have today revolutionized the document management software industry by accelerating growth and allowing documents to be available at anytime, anywhere,” begins Dr. Mohammed Shaikh, Co-Founder and President, Esign Inc. The company provides security, both online and offline, through utilizing 256-bit encryption for each individual document, allowing authenticated individuals to access documents only if they receive consent.
With an industry presence of more than two decades, Esign offers automation benefits that eliminate problems associated with expensive overnight delivery costs, misplaced/ stolen/tampered documents, or endless stacks of documents requiring signatures. For instance, if a Sheriff needs to send a document, or get it signed by the judge, he takes a print out and drives down to the judge’s office for his signature. However, with Esign, he can send it electronically to the judge. “The judge can access the encrypted document via his iPad or android device or desktop. Since it is encrypted, nobody can modify or misuse it,” explains Shaikh.
The company offers a wide range of document management solutions— eSecureDOX, eSignDOX, AuditorePass, ClerkePass, E-Filing, and USAeNotary.
eSign DOX safeguards confidential
information and allows secure business
transactions among all the stakeholders
Esign’s flagship solution, eSecureDOX is a cloud-based document management and collaboration system powered by Google Drive and secured with their patented 256-bit individual digital certificate-based encryption. Through this, users can have access to a variety of services, such as free file storage, remote access, easy online collaboration, simple file-sharing, workflow apps, and affordable pricing. The solution uses PKI encryption and helps to ensure compliance with guidelines like the HIPPA. “The solution also utilizes ‘Orange Card’—a system that provides personal health record repository—and grants others access to encrypted documents in emergency situations,” he adds. In addition, each document/file stored in the eSecureDOX database possesses individual digital certificate encryption for maximum security.
Furthermore, eSignDOX is a secure robust solution for sharing important business documents. It not only uses encrypted repository to store the document, but also automates workflow using digital signatures and reduces the expenses and time allocations that paper-based approval processes require. “eSignDOX safeguards confidential information and allows secure business transactions among all the stakeholders,” says Shaikh.
“As the cloud becomes the world’s repository for information, we’re excited to deliver the enterprise-grade identity management and security that companies need to know their information is safe,” he adds. The company differentiates itself with its innovative digital signature based document workflow and patented document repository designed to meet the client’s needs. “Unlike our competitors, we authenticate the signature and provide security and privacy, along with secure storage for long term,” concludes Shaikh. For the days to come, Esign will continue to focus on providing document repository for secure document management and storage.
