Example Expert Opinion:
Senior Analyst, Tower Group
“ESignature and secure documents are heavily laden with security issues. It is critical that carriers make a realistic assessment of their own capabilities and determine if they will build or buy a solution. Tower Group finds that, increasingly, carriers are seeking vendors that have focused and detailed expertise in security related to specific applications and are partnering with them rather than doing internal development.”
