DTRA Uses Electronic Signature Solution From Silanis

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency is one of numerous federal agencies to use Silanis' award-winning e-signature solution to accelerate internal processes. Silanis has more than 1,400 government and commercial customers, representing over 2 million users.

Montreal, QC (PRWEB) October 4, 2007 -- Silanis Technology (http://www.silanis.com), the leading e-signature provider and premier supplier of e-signature solutions to the US Department of Defense (http://http://www.silanis.com/site/solutions/solution.php?topic=department_of_defense) (DoD), is pleased to announce the recent selection of its e-signature solution by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), a federal defense agency founded in 1998 to address the present and future threat of weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

DTRA's mission is to safeguard America and its allies from WMD (chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and high-yield explosives) by providing capabilities to reduce, eliminate and counter the threat, and mitigate its effects.

Several agencies that DTRA deals with have also equipped themselves with ApproveIt® Desktop, including the Joint Chiefs of Staff (http://www.silanis.com/site/corporate/our_customers.php?doc=136)and US Army (http://www.silanis.com/site/corporate/our_customers.php?doc=117), both under enterprise licenses with Silanis.

With the goal of reducing the amount of paper within the organization, and the need to maintain the highest possible level of information security, DTRA uses ApproveIt Desktop with Microsoft Word and Excel to approve memos and other internal documents.

Silanis' electronic signature solutions are unique because they use a digital signature to securely combine the signer's intent with user authentication and data integrity. This "document-centric" approach strengthens the electronic evidence of signed documents.

ApproveIt Desktop (http://www.silanis.com/site/solutions/solution.php?topic=silanis_offerings&solution=approveit_desktop_datasheet) is a public key-enabled (PKE) application certified under the Joint Interoperability Testing Command (JITC). It supports the DoD public-key infrastructure (PKI) and Common Access Cards (CAC), as well as multiple document formats including Microsoft Word and Excel, Adobe PDF and IBM Lotus Forms.

Organizations using Silanis' solution immediately reduce processing costs, compress approval cycles and increase their responsiveness, with the assurance that ApproveIt is secure, easy to use and provides strong electronic evidence.
