SAN FRANCISCO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--ARX (Algorithmic Research), a leading provider of digital
signature solutions, announced that it has joined the RSA Secured® Partner Program to certify interoperability
between the ARX CoSign® digital signature solution and the RSA® Identity Verification services from RSA, The
Security Division of EMC. The combined solution is designed to provide businesses with a reliable method to
establish trust and help secure online transactions for consumers.
B2C businesses that use ARX's CoSign digital signature solution now have the option to proof the identities of their
customers online via RSA’s knowledge-based Identity Verification service. The combined solution is designed to
provide businesses with a reliable method to enroll customers for signature credentials, and then sign electronic
transactions over the Internet with secure, standard digital signatures. CoSign's digital signature capabilities combined
with RSA’s cloud-based Identity Verification service, also provide enterprises with proof of signer identity and
intent, and help ensure transaction integrity over the life of a contract or record.
“The interoperable solution creates an essential chain of online capabilities designed to allow organizations the ability
to establish trust in real time to help prevent fraud and identity theft before, during and after an online transaction
takes place,” said Ted Kamionek, Vice President Business Development, at RSA, The Security Division of EMC.
“Businesses will now be able to bring their B2C processes online faster, drive more business and operational
efficiencies, help manage compliance issues and at the same time, securely screen fraudulent activities that may result
in or from identity theft, account takeovers, and account compromises.”
“This advancement provides our enterprise clients with one more option to establish their B2C processes online.
Now, they can use RSA’s Identity Verification when they cannot meet their customers for face-to-face identity
verification,” explained John Marchioni, VP Business Development, ARX. “The combined capability delivers a
secure and affordable solution for feature-rich digital signatures, and when people sign documents digitally and
securely, they help reduce costs while maintaining proper control over their business processes.”
