ESDINAMICO And Comodo Partner To Offer Advanced Digital Signature Solutions

Solutions will be developed under the brand idSegura, using Comodo Personal Certificates

Quito, Ecuador and Jersey City, NJ, December 21, 2010– ESDINAMICO, a privately-held Web software and solutions company in South America, today announced it has partnered with Comodo, a leading Certificate Authority and Internet security organization, to develop digital signatures solutions, under the brand idSegura, using Comodo Personal Certificates.

"Comodo’s certificates are compatible with virtually any software system on the market, either on the server or client side. The functionality of EPKI has definitely helped us to offer our customers integrated solutions that make them much more efficient in their duties and to popularize the use of digital signatures in our country," said Hartmut Bock, ESDINAMICO CEO.

All the solutions available under the brand idSegura integrate Comodo’s Enterprise Public Key Infrastructure (EPKI), enabling ESDINAMICO customers to request, authorize, reject or cancel the Certificates for themselves.

“We are delighted to enter into this partnership by teaming with ESDINAMICO to provide Internet security to e-businesses in this burgeoning market,”said Melih Abdulhayoglu, Comodo CEO and chief security architect.

The Digital Signature Solutions ESDINAMICO offers with integration to Comodo EPKI are: 1. Electronic Invoicing Solution e-billing

2. PKI Authentication System 3. Individual and Bulk E-signer

4. Digital Custody of Documents

e-billing: Electronic Invoicing Solution The Electronic Invoice Solution from ESDINAMICO, e-billing, uses Comodo Personal Certificates in order to preserve the validity and authenticity of each invoice and to check the reception of it on the receptor side. The use of digital files and the Internet for the transmission of those files also promotes the green initiative by cutting costs associated with paper usage and the transportation of documents, thereby helping to preserve the environment.

PKI Authentication System The authentication method used by most Web-based systems involving a username and a password is insecure, since they are susceptible to Keyloggers, Worms, Trojans and dictionary attacks.

The PKI Authentication System idSegura from ESDINAMICO allows a system to identify its users through their digital signature, giving the system the level of trust users need to share highly confidential information.

Users must go through several validation steps to receive a digital signature, and the administrator of the system has complete control over the status of it through Comodo EPKI, so if it needs to disable a user he has just to revoke his or her digital signature.

The Digital Signer Software allows our customers to digitally sign documents in various formats (PDF, XML, and Office) individually and massive. It uses Personal Certificates from Comodo giving all the necessary legal backing to the signed documents. It can easily be integrated to ERP Systems, Workflows or existing Documental Managers within the organization as it implements a set of WebServices for communication.
