ZorroSign team members, Cassidy Alexander, Kristen Harder, and Michael Jones were pleased to attend the ninth annual Cybersecurity Summit in Scottsdale on May 12, 2022, hosted by the Arizona Technology Council, Arizona Commerce Authority, and Arizona Cyber Threat Response Alliance (ACTRA).

The educational event provided an opportunity for government and business leaders to learn about the threats, vulnerabilities and consequences related to data security and privacy matters via panel discussions, keynote speakers—Tim Roemer, Director Arizona Homeland Security/CISO State of Arizona, and John Davis (Major General, US Army, Retired), VP Public Sector at Palo Alto Networks—sponsors and other cybersecurity presentations.

Blockchain Architecture For Elevated Security

ZorroSign is the only company that offers a multi-blockchain platform to secure, track, and manage your digital signatures, transactions, and documentation.

By using distributed ledger technologies—originally built on Hyperledger Fabric and recently expanded to include the Provenance Blockchain—ZorroSign provides superior privacy and security, while preventing fraud and ensuring regulatory compliance.


How does this blockchain architecture contribute to cybersecurity?

Blockchains provide structural layers of protection from cybercrime—like ransomware, malware, or phishing attacks—first, by decentralizing the data set itself (preventing any one breach to access the entire data set), and second, by giving endpoints (or nodes) a quick path to recovery, even if they are themselves breached or their access ransomed.

Unlike centralized databases—which can be breached at unsecure endpoints (users and devices) or even at managed service providers (MSPs) hosting them—giving attackers complete control once they gain central access, blockchain technology distributes data physically across separate nodes. By decentralizing data storage, blockchain effectively prevents any one endpoint (even if compromised) from gaining control of the full data set.

This distributed nature defeats any attack seeking to breach a system and holistically encrypts the data files stored inside: A single endpoint node might be breached, and its files held for ransom, but the larger data set cannot be controlled by any one endpoint (or central authority) and so attackers cannot capture the full data set for encryption, ransom, and shutting down the network.

ZorroSign is a strong addition to any organization’s security stack, and brings the cybersecurity capabilities of blockchain to digital signatures and transactional documentation.

Z-Forensics Token

ZorroSign has further elevated our security through our patented fraud detection technology we call the Z-Forensics token. This unique digital solution that can:

  • Prove that the individual who is performing the action to sign the document is who they claim to be (verification)
  • Apply a digital equivalent of a wet-ink signature to the document (legal intent)
  • Prove the authenticity of the printed or digital version of an electronically signed document, its content, attachments, and the signatures on it (authenticity)

Unlike any other digital signature solution, ZorroSign seals all our clients’ documents with the Z-Forensics token—capturing the complete audit trail and accompanying attachments and signature workflow. The token is encrypted and contains all the details about the transaction: Time stamps, user authentication, documents and attachments.

ZorroSign team members, Allyson Hoogers, Kristen Harder, Cassidy Alexander and Megan Blood were pleased to exhibit at the Phoenix Metro Chamber of Commerce Unleash Your Power Business Conference and Expo on March 9th! 

The four set up a booth displaying ZorroSign’s multi-chain blockchain platform and introducing our digital signature and IDaaS technology to a wide variety of Phoenix businesses and professionals.

Many real estate, finance, and legal industry attendees visited us to learn about ZorroSign’s digital signature solutions, see how our blockchain architecture delivers superior privacy and security, and explore our applications for digital transactions within their industries. They learned the importance of blockchain and how ZorroSign utilizes this technology for next-level security.

Allyson and Kristen also attended a panel showcasing the importance of digital security, with a focus on encrypted data and how easily information can be obtained from unwanted parties if you’re not keeping up with the latest security and technology. They were grateful to the enthusiastic crowd of Phoenix area business leaders who were ready to learn about ZorroSign and the other businesses exhibiting.

“It was so refreshing to attend an in-person event,” said Allyson. “The ZorroSign team looks forward to attending many more events here in Arizona in the future.”

“It was also great to meet and connect with some amazing business leaders around the valley,” added Kristen.

We thank the Phoenix Metro Chamber for hosting this fun event, and especially Jack DuChene and Phil Guinouard for their help in promoting ZorroSign to the Phoenix community!
