This partnership enables true compatibility between BFO and nCipher products and will help users to implement advanced document security.

The Big Faceless PDF Library now contains a signature handler using nCiphers nShield as well as the ability to time-stamp documents with nCiphers Document Sealing Engine (DSE200).
