What is the difference between PDF Sign&Seal and PDF Signer Server?
PDF Sign&Seal and PDF Signer Server are two different Ascertia products.
PDF Signer Server is marketing term given to ADSS Server when supplied with PDF signing and/or PDF signature verification modules. PDF Signer Server brings advanced digital signature and time-stamping capability to PDF documents and forms using a server-side solution. In this case the signature is created on the server. This can be done in an automated way or on demand through a web services interface. ADSS Server also allows client-side signatures to be applied to PDFs through the use of the ADSS Go>Sign applet. This is an ideal solution when the signing keys are held locally by the user (on smartcard, USB token or in software). Using the Go>Sign applet within a web-browser has a real benefit to external workflows since no signing software is required to exist on end user systems.
PDF Sign&Seal is a standalone desktop application that makes it easy to use digital signatures, time-stamps and strong encryption on business documents. It is expected to be used with an organization and it has been carefully designed for use by busy managers that have ease of use as a priority. Using PDF Sign&Seal anyone can easily create, sign or protect a business documents.
Both applications work without any need to purchase Adobe® licenses.
