E-Delivery: transmit data safe & secure

The European eIDAS regulation (electronic identification and trust services) aims to ensure that:

  • Companies and individuals can identify themselves online in any country within the EU;
  • A European market is being created where parties can exchange, seal and sign messages, documents, and transactions carefree and legally.

Only parties that certify to the highest level can legally offer digital signatures and online identification solutions. The EU has drawn up strict frameworks and guidelines to guarantee the above services’ safety, reliability, and legality. In this article, we take a closer look at securely sending all your important documents, messages, and transactions, without the risk of theft, loss, and damage: the eDelivery.

What is eDelivery (electronic delivery)?

You use an eDelivery solution to send all your important documents, messages & transactions securely and legally via the internet. This way, you protect yourself and your organization against loss, theft, or damage of your critical digital data. To put it more technically: you use an eDelivery solution to build a network with all your important partners and stakeholders in line with the very highest technical standards of the EU. This way, companies and organizations can easily and securely send essential documents and data to each other via public and private channels within the network.

Please note: you always use an eDelivery solution in combination with the other digital trust services that fall under the eIDAS regulation. You want to be sure that you send your important digital data to the right people and parties (eID), that the integrity of your sent documents and messages is guaranteed by a secure seal (eSeal), that your digital data is signed for (eSignature) and that you can monitor and track the sending and receipt of your important documents, etc. (eTimestamp). Therefore always choose a provider of eDelivery solutions that can guarantee the confidentiality, integrity, and authenticity of your important digital data.

  • Security: a solution for eDelivery protects you against theft, loss, or damage while sending your important documents, messages, and transactions;
