DigitalSign | Jornal de Negócios

C 19 April 2021

At a time when the digital is the 'new normal'', DigitalSign was subject of an article of Jornal de Negócios with the theme: “Digital documents increase the need for security”.

When the country began the confinement in March 2020, nobody knew for sure that after 13 months, teleworking would continue to be a reality for thousands of companies. Recently, DigitalSign has been in evidence for supporting several organizations (governments, public and private companies) across Europe in this global response to covid-19, in which remote work became a fundamental part of this new normal, through its secure process dematerialization solutions, in particular the SigningDesk signature platform.

During this interview, in addition to the launch of this platform, several topics were addressed, namely the electronic invoicing and the use of Qualified Electronic Seals for signing invoices, thus allowing its recipient to check online and free of charge that it has not been altered or that it is not a fraudulent scheme. Besides providing increased security and an easier use of qualified digital certificates, DigitalSign’s also benefits the companies through its technology, allowing still a strong cost reduction with paper elimination.

DigitalSign welcomes the publication of this interview, serving as an incentive to continue the hard work at supporting our customers to quickly and safely adapt to these new challenges of remote work.

Use of digital certificates in Brazil can grow exponentially

C 12 February 2020

The certificate gives you a very powerful tool. Through it, you manifest the desire you want, you sign the contract you want.
- Marcelo Buz

The president of the National Institute of Information Technology - ITI, Marcelo Buz, spoke with great optimism about the subject at the 18th Conescap, an event held by Fenacon, pointing out the current existence of more than 8 million active certificates in a growing market. He also believes in a growth potential ten times greater, that may reach in the coming years the impressive mark of 80 million.

”There are only five acts that you cannot perform with a digital certificate: birth certificate, death certificate, marriage, divorce and a real estate transactions. All other legal acts in Brazil, can be done with your digital certificate, with presumption of legal validity. It's fantastic”, says Marcelo Buz.

The aim is to integrate the process not only in the daily life of entrepreneurs, but also in the life of regular citizens, going beyond documental deliveries and tax obligations.

For this scenario to become a reality, it is therefore necessary that Brazil breaks some paradigms established in recent decades, so this process can happen gradually and safely.

DigitalSign agrees with this statement from the President of ITI and will also contribute towards making this scenario of Digital Certificate massification in Brazil happen by offering the market new applications, simplifying the use of Digital Certificates.
