The company has introduced a platform standardising electronic signatures across the EUDigital signature specialist DocuSign has introduced a new software suite aimed at taking advantage of regulations set to standardise electronic signature laws across the EU from next month.New e-identification opportunitiesThe new laws, known as the eIDAS Regulation, standardise rules covering electronic identification and trust services, including e-signatures, electronic seals and website authentication across Europe, with the EU identifying such services as a key factor in its Single Digital Market strategy.By leveraging the regulation change that is around the corner, DocuSign is ready to further empower Europe s digital transformation, Keith Krach, chairman and chief executive of DocuSign, said.Behind the firewallThe new offering could help organisations who want to implement digital signatures but need to comply with specific regulations or organisational policies, the company added.The company also announced the expansion of its partner programme to include Certificate Authorities CA and Trust Service Providers TSPs and said the xDTM standards body for digital transaction management, of which it is a founding member, has been broadened to include a new European advisory board.Krach said last October he planned to step down from his position, but an unnamed appointee, who had initially agreed to take over the role, backed out in March.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. Chief Executive Officer Meg Whitman said falling valuations among closely held startups are good for public companies like hers as she looks at potential acquisition targets.Many of us predicted that there would be a correction in the value of some of these startup companies, Whitman said Wednesday in an interview on Bloomberg Television.So, I think it s advantageous for companies like Hewlett Packard because the valuations will be more reasonable.Valuations are changing as investors rethink their prospects.Earlier this year Fidelity Investments marked down the value of its holdings in Canadian startup Hootsuite Media Inc., Dropbox Inc., web performance and cybersecurity company CloudFlare Inc., electronic signature technology maker DocuSign Inc. and data center hardware and software makers Nutanix Inc.While Whitman has been seeking to reduce the size of HP Enterprise, which sells corporate computers and software, she said she s looking at potential targets while trying to navigate a market moving toward cloud-based services.The company will consider acquisitions in complementary areas at the right price, she said during the interview.
Common rules for accepting electronic signatures across EU borders enter force on Friday, but technical differences will still make life difficult for users and vendorsAdd in your John Hancock and be on your way.Defining an electronic signature that satisfies the laws of 28 countries is one thing, but creating one that is accepted seamlessly by desktop applications such as Adobe Acrobat Reader and Microsoft Office, and by enterprise applications such as Salesforce, Workday, Microsoft Dynamics CRM or Ariba, is entirely another, according to the consortium.Existing legislation, derived from the 1999 eSignature directive, allows certificates for electronic signatures to be granted to natural persons people and legal persons organizations , and makes little distinction between authenticating the content of a document and expressing consent to that content.However, when the regulation was approved in October 2014, Neelie Kroes, then European Commission vice president, called on incoming Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker to make every transaction with the Commission and other EU institutions possible electronically.After that, unless the U.K. government and the European Commission have agreed otherwise, it will not be possible to make legally binding agreements using eIDAS-compliant eSignatures between a U.K. person and an EU person.The others hail from EU member states Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, and Spain, and from neighboring Norway and Switzerland, and include German state printer Bundesdruckerei, Infocert in Italy, and Docapost/Certinomis in France.
If you re an avid Google Docs user, chances are you re familiar with add-ons.They re third-party extensions that can help you, say, affix your John Hancock to an electronic document, or produce shareable PDFs from scans of objects.Until now, they ve been relegated strictly to the desktop version, but that s no longer the case.On Thursday, Google announced add-ons for the Android version of Docs and Sheets.Add-ons on Android work much the same way they do on a desktop or laptop.They inhabit a new section of Google Play, accessible from the Docs and Sheets menu, and install just like apps.
The goal of everyone in the room with this project was to remove the complexity inherent in today s traditional BPM tools, giving line of business users control over the process, while allowing sophisticated kinds of workflows you see from BPM in settings such as insurance, financial services or healthcare.The problem as both Box and IBM saw it, was that BPM always required IT to create a workflow, and that includes Box Workflow, introduced two years ago at BoxWorks.That usually meant the big important processes got automated, while the kind of project-oriented workflows line-of-business users want to set up were left to more ad hoc methods like email, spreadsheets or even sticky notes and white boards.Having IT deal with those kinds of activities was simply too expensive and time-consuming for less essential processes.Besides taking IT out of the equation, the team had a few other objectives in mind including making it dead simple to create and launch a workflow, being able to track the progress of the workflow in real time and using the tool as a central place for teams to collaborate in the cloud and that could even includes folks from outside of the enterprise .In theory, any employee can build a workflow using a wizard interface by following a series of steps that could touch any number of applications outside of Box, such as DocuSign for electronic signature, Office 365 for documents, Salesforce to update or access the customer record and so forth.

Membership-based ecommerce websites — those that offer products, services, or additional benefits to members — have their own set of complex legal issues that do not apply to traditional online retailers.I’ll address those issues in the article.Membership-based websites should ensure that they have adopted a terms-of-use agreement to outline the relationship between the website and the members.Specifically, these websites should provide a license to use the website provided the members conform to the website’s acceptable use policy.An acceptable use policy typically prohibits members from transmitting spam emails to users, imposing a disproportionate load on the website’s servers, accessing the website through automated means (such as a bot), or posting or transmitting harassing, pornographic, or infringing content.Content submitted by members — such as images, text, videos, and comments — is one of the key areas of liability for membership-based websites.

p ANALYSIS: WannaCry ransomware worm outbreak isn’t the only cybersecurity incident that users need to worry about, as a pair of breaches at Zomato and DocuSign showhe past week has been particularly busy in the cyber-security world and not just because of the WannaCry ransomware worm outbreak.A pair of other, non-ransomware related breaches impacting electronic signature vendor DocuSign and restaurant rating app Zomato highlight ongoing security risks.On May 15, DocuSign publicly confirmed that its’ systems had been breached, helping to fuel a widespread phishing campaign against users.“A complete forensic analysis has confirmed that only email addresses were accessed; no names, physical addresses, passwords, social security numbers, credit card data or other information was accessed,” DocuSign stated.“No content or any customer documents sent through DocuSign’s eSignature system was accessed; and DocuSign’s core eSignature service, envelopes and customer documents and data remain secure.”
p PandaDoc, a 6 year old startup, has always had a simple goal of eliminating the pdf from the sales collateral pipeline, while helping busy salespeople automate the proposal and contract process.The round was led by Rembrandt Venture Partners, but also included participation by Microsoft Ventures, HubSpot, EBRD and Altos Ventures.PandaDoc provides a set of services to automate contract and proposal creation and act as a content layer on top of your CRM tool.In recent years it has expanded from a pure proposal engine to one that offers a range of services that also includes contracts, electronic signature and even collecting the cash, company co-founder Mikita Mikado explained.This puts the company squarely in the realm of what’s called ‘Quote to Cash’ in industry jargon.As the name implies, that means it’s the part of the sales process where you move from simple contact to making a proposal, offering a price, and ideally closing the deal and getting a signature on the proverbial dotted line.
p The overhead halogen lights in my kitchen use between 6.0 and 15.1 kilowatt-hours of energy a month.I know now what the big draws are in my home, power-wise, thanks to the Sense Home Energy Monitor, a roughly $300 device that hooks up to your electrical panel and listens and learns from your appliances and electronics.By picking up the electronic signature of individual devices, the Sense used algorithms to differentiate between my fridge and my oven.Each time I turn on my oven, the Sense tracks the amount of energy it’s using in watts.A couple months ago, an electrician came to install the Sense; it’s definitely not a job for an amateur.The electrician told me that due to my ‘60s-era configuration, the device wouldn’t be able to get a read on every device in my home like it would in other setups.
This feature is brought to you by EversignElectronic signatures, often referred to as E-signatures, are a digital version of someone’s “analog” or handwritten signature (not to be confused with digital signatures).E-signature solutions were born out of the need to to accelerate the transition to the paperless office.There are now plenty of them in the market since the technology first came to market more than 20 years ago.They have grown in popularity over the past few years as businesses of all sizes embrace the SaaS (software-as-a-service) paradigm which removes many of the inconveniences associated with some more traditional e-signature solutions.Mac, PC, tablet or mobile handset.
Biohacking could be a next big thing in this smart world.At the beginning of this month, several dozen employees of Three Square Market (32M) received microchip implants in their hands during a "chip party," allowing them to log into their office computers, open doors, and pay for food and drinks, by simply waving their hands, AP reported.It has been reported that a Siberian doctor has already implanted not one, but at least six microchips underneath his skin and turned his body into a multi-functional gadget for doing a number of jobs by just a wave of his hands.Alexander Volchek, who is an obstetrician/gynaecologist in a hospital in the Novosibirsk region in Russia's north, got his first microchip implant in 2014 and since then he acquired a few more and now has a total of six chips under his skin.However, Volchek does not want to stop here and hopes to implant a cryptosystem and a glucometer microchip in his body in the near future.These chips help him perform day-to-day activities just by moving his hand over a bar code scanner, such as opening doors at work and home, paying bills with a wave of his hand—everything works like magic.
