DocVerify has today released their new WebHook feature that allows users to instantly update the status of their electronic signatures on documents to any remote website. This innovative, powerful feature operates by doing a simple GET or a POST directly to any URL using WebHooks the moment a signer creates a new signature document, views a signature document or signs a document, once the document has completed the signature process.A WebHook is a contract management tool that provides users with valuable information as soon as it happens, which means no more waiting to find out the status of e-signatures or having to pull the data. Users are able to register their own URL and then extend, customize and integrate that application with their own custom extensions or other applications on the World Wide Web.According to DocVerify, "It's very simple." After the system has been activated, you simply enter the URL of the page where you have set it up to receive DocVerify's GETs or POSTSs, and the instant a signer performs an action, such as viewing an e-sign document or completing an e-signature document, your page is instantly notified of the update. This allows you to quickly update the information on your own site without the need of constantly having to pull the data from DocVerify for status updates.In addition, DocVerify's new webhook feature is also designed to work in coordination with DocVerify's voice signature system, not only the e-sign system. Once the user has set up the URL, each time a new voice signature document is created, a voice signature is requested, a call is answered, verified or recorded, the URL is immediately updated.DocVerify's new WebHook feature offers vital help for any contract management or document management needs, ensuring instant notification of electronic signatures and more.

DocVerify has today unveiled their newest product designed to ensure authenticity and integrity; this fraud prevention system offers significant advantages to everyone from merchants to individuals and payment providers. Fraud (and the associated problems with fraud, such as chargebacks) is a significant problem in the modern world; especially in card not present situations.According to a Lexis Nexis 2009 study, merchants pay more than $100 billion in fraud losses due to chargebacks and unauthorized transactions. A growing percentage of that amount is due to friendly fraud (more than 1/3 of all fraud for online merchants). DocVerify has released their new service to work in conjunction with their digital signature services, as well as their state-of-the art document vaulting system.The new product is quite simple, and offers merchants significant benefits through increased authenticity and integrity with online purchases. In essence, the merchant simply gathers data about a consumer during the checkout process. The instant a purchase is approved, all the data gathered is sent to DocVerify, where it is compiled and analyzed to create a legally binding contract for that specific purchase. The system utilizes both electronic signature and digital signature technologies to ensure integrity and authenticity, as well as non-repudiation from the buyer.Once the document has been created and the digital signature is in place, DocVerify vaults the document in their highly secure tamper proof vault. The customer receives a copy of the document with their electronic signature right in their inbox.Friendly fraud is a growing concern for merchants, and only through the use of digital signature technologies can legally binding contacts be created. This offers immense protection for merchants, and can help to reduce overhead by an enormous amount by reducing chargebacks and their associated fees.In order for merchants and payment providers to protect themselves against the growing rate of friendly fraud, electronic signature services that create legally binding contracts per transaction are the best solution available.
DocVerify has released the first of its kind for any electronic signature and digital signature provider, powerful new tools designed to enhance security and provide advanced authenticity via phone verification and voice recording. These work hand-in-hand with the company's electronic signature and digital signature process and result in legally binding contracts and documents for non-repudiation.
Signature requestors are able to enjoy significant benefits here, and individuals can also enjoy enhanced security from the chance of identity theft. The phone verification product works very simply, and provides the benefits only an electronic signature can offer.
Signature requestors are able to request verification of phone numbers through either SMS or through an automated phone system before the user is allowed to continue with the signing process. With an SMS notification, the user simply inputs their phone number, and. they will then receive a secret code via SMS.
This code must be input into a text field on the website, so that the user and the phone can be connected for better authenticity and security. With the phone-based verification system, users simply input either their mobile number or a direct landline number. DocVerify's automated system calls the number supplied, and asks for the secret code that appears on their screen. Once the code has been accepted, the user must repeat a phrase or state their name, which is recorded.
The voice is recorded and attached to the legally binding document as an electronic signature. In addition to the digital signature and electronic signature this ensures that the document is legal, and it also ensures that the person using the phone is the person in question, thereby reducing the potential for fraud and identity theft.
With the power of DocVerify's electronic signature products like the new advanced phone verification and voice recording system, the problem of fraud, identity, and authenticity can be reduced.

TopDocVerify Becomes an Approved Vendor for the State of Pennsylvania's Electronic Notarization InitiativeDocVerify Now Accessible to Nearly 80,000+ Notaries Public in Pennsylvania
DocVerify announced the Pennsylvania Secretary of State's office has certified the company to be an approved vendor for its electronic notarization initiative. E-Notary, one of DocVerify's flagship solutions will now be accessible to the State's nearly 80,000 notaries public. The decision further solidifies DocVerify's position as a nationwide leader in advanced digital signature and electronic signature solutions as well as document encryption technology.
"The initiative demonstrates the State's commitment to safeguarding consumers, businesses, government and financial institutions and notaries," said Mayer. "Pennsylvania is a pioneer among state governments in that it is one of the first to launch an electronic notarization initiative. We are pleased to play a role in such a significant and historic development."
Pennsylvania's electronic notarization initiative was first announced in 2006 to enhance economic development. The initiative now permits qualified notaries to electronically notarize documents and electronically record them with participating Pennsylvania county recorders of deeds.
To become an electronic notary (e-notary) in the State of Pennsylvania under the new initiative, commissioned notaries in good standing must apply to the Secretary of State notary division. 19 county recorders of deeds currently participate in the new initiative, including Philadelphia County.
DocVerify's Electronic Notary System is a Software as a Service (SaaS) that allows commissioned notaries to create secure electronic notarizations that can be accessed by the notaries and their clients anytime and from anywhere. It requires no software downloads, installations or maintenance. Additionally, the solution decreases costs associated with journals, paper storage and file organization.
To use E-Notary, notaries public upload a document to DocVerify's user-friendly web interface, complete an electronic journal entry and enter the email addresses of all signing parties. Parties e-sign the document in the presence of the notary, who then electronically notarizes the document and stores it securely in the DocVerify Integrity E-Vault. E-Notaries are as legally binding as traditional pen and stamp notaries in Pennsylvania, Colorado, Florida, Kansas, Minnesota, North Carolina, Texas and Utah.

IRVINE, Calif. – February 26, 2009 – The digital age has ushered in a vast number of solutions designed to facilitate the ease and speed of the transfer and sharing of corporate, legal and personal documents. Unfortunately for companies and individuals, the development of these solutions has outpaced innovations in electronic document security, leaving documents vulnerable to internal, external and online threats, including theft and fraud. In response to alarming statistics and increased concerns over cyber security, DocVerify now delivers an unparalleled solution for companies and individuals committed to making document management, contract management and risk mitigation top priorities. Providing seven layers of protection developed using sophisticated encryption standards, and full document audit trails, DocVerify is the first top-tier document verification system that lets users guarantee the authenticity and integrity of any document from their Internet browser.
According to recent data, more than 35 million data records were illegally accessed in 2008, and more than 83 million records were compromised. The rise in illegal altering and theft of proprietary documents can be attributed in part to still-evolving electronic security infrastructures and standards, and widely held myths about electronic document security. An overwhelming number of Internet users believe that a PDF file cannot be altered and that it is secure. This is one of many common misperceptions that the developers of DocVerify hope will cease to exist as more companies and consumers become better informed, and seek ways to protect themselves and their documents from fraud and tampering.
"There are a number of myths surrounding which areas of the web are secure electronic environments, and which types of documents and protocols are tamper-proof," said Darcy Mayer, DocVerify's Chief Technology Officer. "To mitigate risk, our software provides conclusive proof of when, where, what, and by whom any electronic document was created once it is processed through our system. Our goal is to offer a system that provides users with unparalleled protection and the assurance that regardless of the format the document was created in and who they shared it with, the authenticity and integrity of the document won't be compromised."
DocVerify is a revolutionary Software as a Service (SaaS) designed to help companies and individuals protect the authenticity and integrity of corporate, legal and personal documents and mitigate the risks associated with online file transferring, sharing and storing. With DocVerify, users can prove that a document existed at a given point and time. The software's two-factor authentication, document encryption standards, sequential document system and PKI hashing features make it one of the industry's most secure methods of protecting critical data and files. In fact, the software is so secure that not even the company's IT personnel can view protected files. DocVerify data centers are all SAS 70 type II certified facilities, and all actions are recorded in a tamper-proof audit trail. Additionally, each document is watermarked and time stamped.
DocVerify ensures the long term preservation, accessibility, and authenticity of electronic documents while maintaining legal compliance and eliminating the risk of lost documents. It also facilitates the independent verification of electronic documents that have been DocVerify-ed in the event of a dispute, saving valuable time and money associated with electronic discoveries, lawsuits or legal proceedings.
"Our software has been used by attorneys, mortgage brokers, government agencies and online retailers, among other groups and organizations," said Mayer. "The added assurance of a document's authenticity and integrity creates trust between parties, and is critical to protecting individuals and businesses from unforeseen risks and disputes."While an increasing number of companies are taking steps to utilize advanced software and implement policies to help protect valuable documents and manage risks, most individuals still fail to make personal document security a priority, despite increasing reports of identity theft and fraud. According to recent studies, over 80 percent of people use inadequate measures to protect data.
"One of the most common ways data breaches occur is through the theft and access of laptops," said Mayer. "Most individuals don't realize how valuable the information on their personal laptops is until it's been stolen, and unfortunately 97 percent of them are never recovered. We want to help individuals protect themselves in the event of an unfortunate circumstance. Individuals can use our software to securely protect their documents, e-sign documents, and track and validate their documents. It's fast and easy to use, and with reports of identity theft and other accounts of fraud at an all time high, there's no better way to ensure their peace of mind."
RALEIGH, N.C. – December 22, 2008 – Since the National Association of Secretaries of State developed the national e-notarization standards in 2006, North Carolina has been at the forefront of the implementation of electronic notarization technology. This month, the Secretary of State approved DocVerify, a leading provider of digital security solutions for electronic notaries, further solidifying the state's commitment to the safety and security of e-commerce in North Carolina. DocVerify's revolutionary seven layers of protection is an advanced solution engineered to ensure the safety and security of electronic processes and transactions initiated by state and local governments, businesses and consumers.
"E-notarization technology is still fairly new, and we're making tremendous strides in the industry," said Darcy Mayer, DocVerify's chief technology officer. "Our software has more than 10 unique security features compared to other industry competitors, including double fingerprint protection, verification certificates, advanced document encryption, public key infrastructure technology, and full audit trails on a per document basis. North Carolina's Secretary of State has been a pioneer in adopting e-notarization technology and the office has recognized the benefits and the unparalleled level of security that our internet-based solution can offer North Carolina government agencies, businesses and consumers."
In January 2007, North Carolina transitioned to e-notarization, largely due to the time and money the process could save businesses and consumers involved in real estate transactions. Since then, the office of the Secretary of State has worked with state and local government agencies, businesses and consumers to make the transition a seamless one. Although the recent mortgage crisis has since triggered a slowdown in the real estate industry, e-notarization services and software are still widely used throughout the state.
DocVerify's E-Notary is a Software as a Service (SaaS) that enables licensed notaries to create electronic notaries from their web browser. No additional client software or hardware is required to use DocVerify and there are no hidden license fees. Its patent-pending technology combines the time stamp security of the National Institute of Standards and Technology with advanced encryption technology used by the Department of Defense to deliver unprecedented document protection. The software is used to verify, authenticate and electronically sign a variety of document types including contracts, copyrighted materials, titles, trademark and patent registrations, and promissory notes. DocVerify's E-Notary is also environmentally friendly. The software is a paperless solution that reduces the amount of power and resources typically used to create notarized documents, thus reducing the overall carbon footprint of each document. The software also eliminates the need for couriers and postage to transport the documents, saving both resources and money.
As an approved electronic notary solution provider in North Carolina, DocVerify complies with the state's laws and rules governing e-notarization. DocVerify's E-Notary facilitates the ease of business transactions and saves state and local government agencies, businesses and consumers time and money. The software introduces a more efficient way to notarize up to 180 file types with custom electronic notary stamps, and is equipped with secure e-signing capabilities. The company also hopes that DocVerify's E-notary will be essential in helping to enhance consumer protection and combat identity theft and fraud in the state. According to the office of North Carolina's Attorney General, approximately 300,000 residents are victims of identity theft and fraud each year.
"As e-commerce continues to evolve, we will remain committed to developing software solutions that meet the rules and regulations established by state and local governments that govern notaries, and exceed the expectations of the businesses and consumers that use our software to ensure their safety," said Mayer.
DocVerify E-notary is currently available in many states including North Carolina to licensed notaries, and is continually adding new states. The company also provides several additional digital security solutions, including electronic signatures, Quick Notes, API Web Services, and verification services.
Proprietary new technology brings state-of-the-art protection to electronic documents.
Until recently the only way to prove the authenticity and integrity of an original document in a court of law was to have it notarized and time stamped. That was fine before businesses went electronic. Today, e-documents have legal validity in courts of law. 21st century communications require 21st technology protection.
"Unfortunately" explains Darcy Mayer, founder and CTO of DocVerify, an Orange County based provider of document security services, "with time stamping technology there's no way to guarantee that the original had not been tampered with or adjusted subsequent to time-stamping. And hackers and forgers are always less than half a step behind. Obviously, the Department of Defense uses sophisticated methods to protect their electronic documents. We thought it was time to bring that same level of protection to individuals and to the business world."
The result: DocVerify—the first top-tier Document Verification system that lets you guarantee the authenticity and integrity of any signed document right from your browser. "This is clearly a major leap in convenience", says Darcy "as well, of course, as a leap in security for people like realtors and lawyers who need to be able to prove that their documents are absolutely the originals and have never been tampered with in any way whatsoever." DocVerify's top-tier protection for electronic documentation is expected to be of considerable value for individuals and businesses needing to authenticate agreements, contracts, wills, trusts, deeds, mortgage disclosures, good faith estimates, intellectual property, etc.
Deeper levels of protection
"First your document is protected using advanced encryption, and also assigned unique digital fingerprints for authentication and integrity" says Mayer. "Then, DocVerify time stamps it to the second in coordination with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) assuring that the document was uploaded to DocVerify on the stated date, hour, minute, and second. You're then provided legal certification that you DocVerify-ed your document as of the aforementioned time. Your document is processed, bar coded and stored securely within our system. And once DocVerify'd the document cannot be altered in any way"
"From a convenience perspective, DocVerify is ideal for anyone in any business who needs to be able to quickly and easily have an electronic document "locked" in as of a certain date and time right from their browser", says Mayer. "From a security perspective DocVerify is unique insofar as it adds a second level of encrypted security to any document virtually guaranteeing that it can't be hacked into and tampered with or altered in any way. That's the level of security the government requires. Anyone whose business relies on electronic documents can now enjoy that same level of security. We like to say that if it's important enough to be put in writing it's important enough to DocVerify it."
