Which Type of Digital Signature Do I Need?

For a safe and secure Digital Signature, the Advanced-Plus electronic signature (an Adobe Approved Trust List - AATL signature type) is accepted in most countries for business and courts of law. For industries, regions, or companies requiring the strictest level of assurance—depending on regulations, risk level and end-user acceptance—a qualified signature is necessary. In Europe, the qualified signature is the only equivalent of a handwritten signature.

DigiCert® Document Signing Manager supports both Advanced and Qualified signatures in compliance with global Adobe Approved Trust List (AATL) and EU Trust List (EUTL).
