With over 7 billion mobile devices worldwide, more and more applications based in the cloud, and cyber threats at an all-time high, demand has surged for simple and secure ways to sign and manage documents on smartphones and tablets.

Cloud-based digital signatures: Now built on an open standard

Last June, we announced the Cloud Signature Consortium, an Adobe-led group of leading industry and academic organizations, with the goal of helping people easily sign documents that require the highest level of compliance, like healthcare forms or mortgage applications. Today, we take a digital leap forward with the new open standard being made available by the Consortium, and introducing the first cloud-based digital signature solution built on that standard. What this means is that Adobe Sign now enables signing with digital IDs on any browser, on any mobile device. This is especially important in highly regulated or high-value use cases like healthcare, for example, when a doctor is signing a document that contains medical information for a patient under her care, or in the banking industry, when a mortgage specialist needs to approve large value loans with a signature.

Streamlined business workflows

Adobe Sign is now about more than just signatures and approvals. It now enables the efficient, fast flow of documents and tasks across teams, regardless of whether or not a formal signature is needed. The new capabilities are mobile, customizable, and easy-to-use. They include:
