QSS enables employees to protect internal documents with legally binding electronic signatures and seals via an API to mitigate risk and enhance secure remote work

GMO GlobalSign, a global Certification Authority (CA) and leading provider of digital signature, identity and security solutions for the IoT, today announced the launch of Qualified Signing Service (QSS), a new cloud-based signing service for signatures and qualified electronic seals. GlobalSign's qualified electronic signatures and seals comply with eIDAS (electronic IDentification, Authentication and trust Services), an EU regulation for electronic identification and trust services. Only a Qualified Trust Service Provider (QTSP) like GlobalSign can offer qualified signatures and seals. Building on the foundation of its immensely popular Digital Signing Service, GlobalSign's QSS enables enterprises as well as service providers to deploy Qualified electronic signatures and seals in your signature application with a simple REST API integration for internal employee signing. In addition, QSS offers peace of mind for employees signing confidential documents remotely. A Qualified Electronic Signature is a first-class electronic signature backed by a Qualified Digital Certificate. All qualified signatures must meet numerous requirements, such as a signer who must be linked and uniquely identified with the signature. The data used to create the qualified signature must be under the exclusive control of a signatory. In addition, the qualified signature must be able to identify if any of the data accompanying the signature has been tampered with after the message was signed. Therefore, a qualified signature can also mitigate the risk of specific documents, contracts and tasks." We launched QSS because companies need the ability to issue legally binding electronic signatures for their employees. That's what qualified signatures are, but only can be obtained from a QTSP like GlobalSign," said Mohit Kumar, GlobalSign's product manager. "Another key benefit of using QSS is that it will help companies to be eIDAS compliant and employees will be able to securely sign critical documents and contracts anytime, anywhere."
