Interlink Electronics Addresses Data Encryption and Signature-Pad Durability

CAMARILLO, Calif. /BUSINESS WIRE/ --Interlink Electronics, Inc., a developer of intuitive interface technologies and solutions for business and home applications, today announced availability of the ePad-ink Pro LCD signature input device. Created to capture handwritten electronic signatures for high-volume applications, ePad-ink Pro provides enhanced signature data encryption and increased pad surface durability. ePad-ink Pro has a bidirectional pressure-sensitive screen that can display marketing messages to customers while capturing signatures and collecting additional handwriting biometrics. ePad-ink Pro is compatible with existing ePad products from Interlink Electronics and is supported by the company’s IntegriSign Signature Software Suite.

“The ability to hand-sign digital documents is enabling the automation of customer services worldwide,” says Rod Vesling, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, E-Transactions, Interlink Electronics, Inc. “For financial service industries and government agencies, this transition to an e-signature-enabled paperless information process is already putting a significant portion of their transaction costs back on the bottom line. Of course, in such high-volume signature environments, data security and signature pad durability are concerns. To deliver the enhanced durability required for certain applications, ePad-ink Pro provides a new Display Protection System enabling a field-replaceable protective screen to provide long life, even in heavy volume applications.

“To ensure e-signature data security, we have partnered with NCR Corporation to utilize their patented data encryption process in our ePad electronic signature products,” adds Mr. Vesling. “Today, ePad signature pads from Interlink are the only such devices within the financial marketplace licensed by NCR. Utilizing Advanced Encryption Standard with the NCR process helps prevent the electronic ‘sniffing’ of e-signature data. This increased data security between peripheral and host device is fast becoming a requirement in the financial services industry, and we are pleased to partner with NCR to bring data-secure e-signature solutions to this market.”
