AssureSign works with Microsoft to offer leading electronic signature capabilities worldwide
Orlando, Fla., April 29, 2013 — AssureSign LLC, a leader in electronic signature software, today announced that it is expanding its strategic relationship with Microsoft Corp. to promote AssureSign’s electronic signature software solutions in markets beyond its North American base – making its offering truly global.
As privacy and security are becoming a growing concern for many companies, an increasing number of AssureSign customers and partners are requesting in-country or in-region data centers. Windows Azure, Microsoft’s cloud computing platform and infrastructure, provides AssureSign the ability to implement instances across the globe through a network of Microsoft-managed data centers, to meet these demands. AssureSign can even offer a ‘private’ cloud instance to customers anywhere in the world in a matter of a few short hours.
Today, AssureSign makes it possible for thousands of signers to execute documents each day in the European Union (EU) alone, with customers and transactions increasing exponentially worldwide. By adding additional local instances of AssureSign, the privacy issue and barrier to entry, in most countries, is removed.
AssureSign sells its electronic signature software solutions directly and through partners worldwide. One such partner, Perceptive Software, and their customers have been an important influence in AssureSign’s international expansion. With several joint customers in the UK today, Perceptive believes that local data centers will increase their sales potential.
“Windows Azure is a global, scalable, and flexible platform that lets customers use platform services and infrastructure services to tailor their solutions to their specific needs. Windows Azure helps customers and partners quickly deploy their solutions worldwide,” said David Aiken, group product marketing manager, Server and Tools Marketing, at Microsoft. “AssureSign uses Windows Azure to extend their electronic signature capabilities to customers across the globe, demonstrating how a company can build on Windows Azure to quickly extend their business to new customers.”
“Taking advantage of Microsoft’s Windows Azure platform enables us to effectively deal with political and jurisdictional issues surrounding data sovereignty, which is a significant concern when addressing opportunities globally,” says David Brinkman, President and CEO of AssureSign. “AssureSign is excited to announce that as a result of our strategic relationship with Microsoft, AssureSign now runs natively in both European and Asia-Pacific data environments.”
