Silanis updates e-signature platform, now supports Common Access Cards and PIV smart cards for mobile devices

November 30, 2012 - 

E-signature provider, Silanis, has updated its Mobile e-Sign module as part of its e-Sign Enterprise platform, allowing for a more cohesive and capable mobile experience.

The widely-used module now supports the Thursby Pkard SDK, the Biometric Associates baiMobile SDK and the SIC Biometrics SDK, which all offer common access card (CAC) and Personal Identity Verification (PIV) smart card support for mobile devices.

Government bodies and agencies often operate in remote circumstances in the field and need to be able to access government networks. Previously, mobile functionality consisted specifically of email access. This new integration between Silanis’ e-signature module and CAC and PIV smart cards for mobile devices allows for a much more realistic remote work environment and capacity. According to the company, this will allow users to complete all types of business including accessing government websites which require smart card authentication, as well as viewing and electronically signing secure documents wherever there is a network connection.

A prevalent provider of electronic signatures, Silanis is responsible for processing more than 600 million e-signed transactions annually. A major client of Silanis is the U.S. Army, which recently renewed a significant contract with the company. This project represents the largest e-signature and e-forms deployment in the world.
