ZorroSign Partners with Trusona to Secure Online e-Voting
Blockchain Digital Signatures Company Adds Passwordless Identity Proofing Capability
ZorroSign, Inc., a global leader in blockchain-based digital signatures, announced today a new partnership with Trusona, the pioneering leader in passwordless identity solutions, to authenticate user identities. This innovative partnership expands ZorroSign’s capability as a leading digital signature solution with identity proofing capabilities—uniquely combining identity-as-a-service architecture with digital signature and a document management system.
“In leading a global SaaS company that lives and breathes data security, I understand how blockchain can be an essential component to any election security framework,” said Shamsh Hadi, CEO of ZorroSign. “Blockchain technology can be employed by voting machine vendors to significantly enhance and upgrade the security and reliability of electronic voting systems. ZorroSign brings the secure, private, and immutable blockchain records critical to protect the integrity of U.S. elections.”
This new online voting solution uses passwordless identity proofing that is available in 38 states and provides the ability to scan a government-issued REAL ID Act identification, like a driver license, and then verify the identity with the state’s department of motor vehicle. ZorroSign’s integration with Trusona will be made available for the 2020 U.S. elections across cities, counties, and states that wish to enable online voting due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“2020 is the year where online voting becomes a reality because the powerful technology we carry in our pockets has limitless possibilities. Blockchain is here; remote identity proofing is here,” said Ori Eisen, founder and CEO of Trusona. “Trusona helps us protect our high-valued documents like sensitive financial assets and voting records, providing us with the confidence to execute documents securely and from any location.”
