Perceptive Software, has licensed Security Builder PKI software developer toolkit. For Perceptive Software, the toolkit will enable its developers to quickly and easily add digital signature functionality to its ImageNow suite of products.

Perceptive Softwares customers benefit because they can now use digital signatures natively to approve documents, thereby eliminating additional steps and saving time. And, because the Perceptive Software team chose to use elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) algorithms, customers can expect the process to be fast and secure, regardless of the number of documents being signed. Enterprise customers use Perceptive Softwares solutions to electronically capture, index and store documents in one central repository, which allows users to search, route and view the documents from any business application. These capabilities create measurable efficiencies, and by enabling their customers to approve documents electronically, the approval workflow process is shortened even more. In sourcing a solution, the Perceptive Software team had two overriding criteria. It had to be a proven technology and it had to be fast. The team ruled out open-source admitting that the associated costs were too great, especially in light of patent indemnifications and the ongoing need for code updates and maintenance. Given that many of their customers handle sensitive documents-healthcare, financial, government and human resource markets-the team wanted trusted implementations backed by cryptography experts who could provide ongoing support and code maintenance. Speed was critical because the solution would have to handle a large number of documents.
