Strengthen your eIDAS-compliant signing services and create a Qualified Signature Creation Device (QSCD) by integrating our Signature Activation Module (SAM)* and CC EAL 4+ and FIPS 140-2 L3-certified HSMs with your signing infrastructures.

*Estimated CC EAL 4+ certification completion: end of 2021
