SIGNiX, a preferred business alliance of Credit Union Resources, celebrated a milestone last week when its technology was used to facilitate the first ever remote, digitally notarized deed in the United States. An American couple living in France used SIGNiX digital signatures and web conferencing to notarize a property deed in Virginia with the Circuit Court of Alexandria.

The Commonwelath of Virginia is the first and only state in the country to authorize this method of online e-notarization, which allows signers to get documents instantly notarized by a Virginia notary from anywhere in the world.

SIGNiX’s technology is being utilized by Trustmark Certification Services to apply digital signatures and an electronic notary seal to e-notarized documents in compliance with Virginia’s legislation. SIGNiX not only uses standards-based digital signatures that protect the document from tampering, it also offers TotalAudit™, a highly detailed record of the signature and notary process itself. In addition, SIGNiX enables strong, multi-factor authentication options like knowledge-based authentication to positively verify the identity of the signers.

“Our company led the pack in modernizing the signature process, and it’s an honor to be on the front lines of the effort to bring the notary process into the 21st century,” said Jay Jumper, president and CEO of SIGNiX. “Customers expect to be able to do business instantly online, and the demand for cloud-based tools like digital signatures is exploding. We can’t wait for more clients to jump on board and experience this for themselves.”
