The acceleration of digital business has been rapid over the past 18 months and caught many by surprise. The Cloud Signature Consortium (CSC) has supported this rise in the digital economy by developing a set of standards and protocols for remote signing that enable businesses to leverage digital signatures and power cross-border business.
Having announced that we passed the evaluation process earlier this month, the Common Criteria process has now officially completed with the issuance of this certificate. This enables the ADSS SAM (Signature Activation Module) appliance to be listed as a certified product on the Common Criteria website (under Products for Digital Signatures).
