Euthymics, a new biotech company has implemented a joint GlobalSign and SafeNet’s solution is not only designed to meet the needs of the activities regulated by the FDA, but Euthymics to meet the need “for a streamlined, improved and standardized process documentation of electronic signatures.
Before the introduction of digital signatures Euthymics, a biopharmaceutical company focused on neuroscience, was forced to hand over the documents to sign and manually manage the process of distribution, storage and retrieval of all documents signed. This manual process extended schedules and project timelines and higher costs due to overloading of the files, mail, and fax documents. Recognizing the cost and time benefits of the use of electronic signatures by hand signatures, Euthymics needed an automated solution that the swift exchange of documents from remote locations, and critically complied with federal regulations for electronic signatures and electronic documents (Title 21 CFR Part 11). CFR Title 21 Part 11 of the Code of Federal Regulations establishes criteria under which electronic records and electronic signatures are considered trustworthy, reliable, and equivalent to paper records.

Your offer CDS DocumentSign brand as a joint solution that incorporates a USB token or encryption PCI card manufactured by SafeNet, a global leader in information security. These hardware devices are used to protect the Digital ID DocumentSign and allow rapid and safe creation of digital signatures to PDF files. The USB device is the industry SafeNet iKey ™ leader in 2032), a two-factor authentication is a sign that FIPS 140-1 Level 2 certified. SafeNet iKey Authenticators the digital signature process to meet all regulatory requirements and criteria to ensure the electronic information in the pharmaceutical industry. The combined solution DocumentSign GlobalSign and SafeNet’s hardware allows users to add signatures certified and authorized to PDF files using the trust model built into Adobe Reader 6.0 +. This process is the virtual equivalent to sealing a document and add a wet ink signature and assure the recipient that the document is authentic, comes from a verified source and the content has not been tampered with since its publication.
The solution ensures DocumentSign strong two-factor authentication by combining a physical iKey USB token (something you have) with a password to protect access (something you know), “delivery of security and convenience to end users “, said Anthony McKinney, President and CEO Euthymics. , Mr. McKinney says, “Having secure digital signature hardware for use on a platform of strong support of Adobe Acrobat is very useful. By using a program like Adobe Acrobat any recipient to receive the digitally signed document can open the document PDF as they normally would and the digital signature display the signer’s name and a timestamp.
The reaction of both authors and addressees of electronically signed documents have been positive. Since the deployment Euthymics’ of DocumentSign, has been widely accepted and adopted both internally across the enterprise and externally through third-party partners. Euthymics customers, employees and partners outside the adapted quickly to new electronic signatures, because of its integration with Adobe Reader. Mr. McKinney says simply, “people understand.” Adobe Reader is a free product that does not require the purchase of third party applications, technical expertise or knowledge. McKinney Euthymics as described in the “sharp end of the way” in terms of the implementation of electronic signatures in their field. Experience shows that Euthymics other companies can incorporate a transparent and paperless electronic signature that allows companies to improve their document management and workflow through its physical limits.
The successful collaboration of GlobalSign and SafeNet solutions to display the document based on digital signatures Euthymics provided a streamlined process to accelerate and improve portable document exchange and workflow in today’s security. This rationalization process has significantly reduced the cost, time and complexity of existing processes, including reducing overhead costs associated with document storage, security, transport, delivery and archiving, and reduce approval cycle time , manipulation and distribution of documents from more remote locations.
