Game-Changing Security


Swiftdox certificates use the latest cutting-edge security features to ensure legality and authenticity in a two-tier approach.

First, the system applies legally admissible digital signatures that are fully compliant with the ESIGN Act, UET Act, SOX and many more national regulations. This means that our digital signatures are the most widely accepted replacement of wet ink signatures available to date. If a document is changed or tampered with the document encryption will flag the file as invalid.

Next, we ensure absolute tamper-proof validation by utilizing customized blockchain technology. Every time a certificate is issued its data is immediately captured and stored permanently in the blockchain. Certificates can be validated online using the unique certificate ID or by uploading the digital certificate file and will instantly reveal whether the document has been tampered with.

Swiftdox is the very first certificate platform in the USA to utilize this ground-breaking new technology and aims to play a crucial role in the growing global acceptance of digital certificates.

What is Blockchain?


Blockchain has recently become one of the world's biggest security revolutions yet remains a mystery to most people. We asked our data architect what everyone wants to know. What exactly is blockchain? The short answer--

"Solving problems you didn't know you have with technology you don't understand."

"If you google the term blockchain you'll see that there's over 141 million results for blockchain. It's mentioned by every single media outlet in the past two years, and it's hailed as the next big thing. They say that blockchain will change human behavior. It will change the way that we interact and interact with business.

When you mention blockchain, what to people think of immediately? Bitcoin. Blockchain is a whole lot more than Bitcoin. Blockchain is the underlying technology of Bitcoin. Imagine a spreadsheet that's duplicated thousands of times across a network of computers and imagine that the network is designed to regularly update the spreadsheet everywhere. That's blockchain.

There's a size limit to each block. It keeps cramming transactions into each block. Once it reaches a certain size it hashes [digitally fingerprints] the block and seals it in a cryptographically sealed block and each new block is linked to the other block. And that's all you really need to know about blockchain."

Legality of E-Signatures


In an industry where authenticity and compliance are absolutely vital, digital signatures may seem strange to those accustomed to the traditional wet-ink signature.

Swifdox implements the highest level of secure E-Signatures available; nevertheless, most still ask the burning question: "Are e-signatures legal?". The following is a statement by Adobe Sign, one of the engines that drive our security.

"The simple answer is, yes, e-signatures are legal."

"On June 30, 2000, President Bill Clinton signed the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN Act) into law without a pen. Instead, he used an electronic signature. This ground-breaking law addresses e-signatures as well as electronic records, both of which are commonly used in commerce today. An e-signature was granted the same status as a written signature under the terms of this legislation; however, it is important to note that simply placing a symbol on a document does not, in and of itself, create an enforceable contract. Those who are concerned about the question of legality must be well informed about the various requirements associated with the use of e-signatures."
