)-- 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.
