What is the difference between Electronic Signatures and Digital Signatures?

Electronic Signatures and Digital Signatures are often used interchangeably; but there are some key differences between the two.

Digital signatures are an extension of electronic signatures in that it offers more security than a traditional electronic signature. When you sign a document with a digital signature, the signature links a “fingerprint” of the document to your identity. Then that information is permanently embedded into the document, and the document will show if someone comes in and tries to tamper with it after you’ve signed it.

By doing this, a Digitally Signed document provides assurance that:

  • The document is authentic and comes from a verified source
  • The document has not been tampered with since being digitally signed and finalised

The SuiteBox VideoSign Proof of Signature™  technology uses established digital signing protocols but adds an additional level of identity evidence and security by recording the signing process and the video / audio of the signing parties.
