MC Mutual,the Spanish social security system's occupational accident and illness insurer, has implemented Safelayer's corporate e-signature solution.
Safelayer's solution provides MC Mutual with a centralized key and digital certificate management system that can be used remotely by employees, meaning storage on local repositories is not required. Avoiding the use of local repositories in PCs simplifies certificate management and makes it possible to audit certificate usage at any time.
Shared key usage is a further advantage of the system. Keys and certificates can be shared by a number of users (e.g., company certificates). Access control is managed via roles, and there is no need for storing copies of the keys.
Employees can sign documents and forms and perform administrative procedures with public bodies on behalf of the organization. All these processes are made legally valid through the use of recognized certificates. Safelayer's partner Bull implemented the project with the aim of extending it to 1000 users across MC Mutual's network of offices.
MC Mutual has successfully implemented the server signature completely integrated with Active Directory, its existing user provisioning system. Users require only a PC plug-in that integrates perfectly with their desktop applications. The certificates can be used to sign documents, including PDFs, and to provide secure email through the use of signatures and data encryption.
