Cyber-SIGN for Acrobat
Cyber-SIGN for Acrobat works with any Adobe PDF document. Once created, the user simply clicks the CyberSIGN icon and is prompted to sign the document. The signature becomes part of the document. For predefined forms, the signature location can be fixed; alternatively, users can select where they wish to sign the document. In workflow, multiple signatures may be added as required, and document changes are tracked, just as is often done on paper. In the event that a document is altered, a detail event log is maintained detailing change authorizations, signatory, date/time stamp, reason for change, etc.
Capture and Authenticate for Acrobat
Capture and Authenticate for Acrobat enable users to compare the changed document against the original to review changes made, by whom, for what reason, and the location of the signer when made.

The dynamic signature verification software examines changes in speed, style, pressure and timing that are unique to an individual. Fraud is essentially impossible – we never sign exactly the same way twice, and an identical copy of a signature is rejected as being false.
