Start Securing Your Documents
You need a Document Signing Certificate to digitally sign your documents. GlobalSign certificates can be issued to individuals or organizations and there are no limits on the number of signatures you can apply.
Please ensure to order your certificate from the Region where the company in the certificate is based, and with the correct currency. If your certificate request upon ordering does not match these criteria, your order may risk being delayed, and/or not being processed.Select Region

Why Should You Digitally Sign Your Documents?
Digital signatures are a type of electronic signature based on cryptographic technology. This underlying cryptography makes them the most secure form of electronic signatures and compliant with national and industry-specific e-signature requirements.
Prove that it is really you who signed the document
Your third party verified identity is used to apply the signature and this information is embedded directly in the document, assuring document recipients that the signature is legitimate.
Create a tamper-evident seal on your document and protect your content
When someone opens a digitally signed document, its contents are automatically compared to when the signature was applied. Even the smallest change will cause this check to fail and an error message will be shown to warn the reader.
Automatically include a trusted timestamp to show when exactly the document was signed
All digital signatures applied with a GlobalSign certificate automatically include a RFC 3161 compliant timestamp to support non-repudation, time-sensitive transactions, audit trails, and certain e-signature regulations.
Why Choose GlobalSign for Document Signing?
As a member of Adobe’s Approve Trust List (AATL) and Microsoft Root Trust List, GlobalSign certificates are automatically trusted in leading document software.
Long Term Validity
GlobalSign digital signatures are long term validity enabled, meaning the signatures do not expire when the certificate expires.
Trusted Timestamping Included
GlobalSign document signing certificates include trusted timestamping for no additional fee. This supports non-repudiation and is a requirement for some regulations.
