ChosenSecurity Teams With Notaries
SAN FRANCISCO -- ChosenSecurity, Inc., a leading specialist in identity verification and security services, today announced that the National Notary Association (NNA) has selected ChosenSecurity to provide identity verification and document security technology to empower an expanded Electronic Notary Seal (ENST) program for notaries public. Electronic notarization provides a digital certificate that confirms a notary's commission and is accessible only through its designated notary. Its use can speed submission of sensitive documents to financial institutions and help prevent forgeries.
ChosenSecurity's work with the NNA builds on that of its GeoTrust heritage.
The original National eNotary Registry and Electronic Notary Seal Program was rolled out one year ago in Pennsylvania. Its popularity there among notaries and their customers, as well as time and cost savings, have led the NNA to make the program available in additional states, including California, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Michigan, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin.
"Over the past year, we've been gratified to see a strong reception for the ENS program and are rapidly broadening the program to reach more notaries public," said Richard Hansberger, Director of eNotarization at the National Notary Association. "We chose to further our relationship with ChosenSecurity based on the company's technology, but also its demonstrated expertise in securing sensitive documents and understanding the issues surrounding online financial transactions."
