Add valid digital signatures

Acting much like a notary or third-party witness, a digital signature verifies a signer’s identity using their unique digital certificate. Nitro Pro allows you to add your own digital signature, which then encrypts and locks your document for a higher level of security and compliance.

What’s the difference between an electronic signature and a digital signature?

Ideal for signing most documents, such as contracts, POs, and invoices, an electronic signature is the electronic equivalent of signing a document with a handwritten signature. Anyone can quickly create and apply an electronic signature.

Rarely needed for eSigning, a digital signature uses encryption technology and digital certificates to verify the authenticity of a document and a signer’s identity. A digital signature requires that the user has access to a digital certificate and is only required for very specific types of documents in heavily regulated industries.

Verify digital signatures quickly and easily

Comprised of an ordered list of digital certificates, the Chain of Trust feature helps you automate trusted contacts for quicker validation of the digital signatures you receive.
