eSignSystems Enhances SmartSAFE to Enable Secure Export & Transfer of 
Electronic Documents 
Mortgage Builder Deployment Showcases New Secure Pipeline for
Digitally-Signed Packages 
LEE, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/15/13 --  eSignSystems, a division of
Wave Systems Corp. (NASDAQ: WAVX), today announced the expansion of
its flagship product SmartSAFE, now shipping in version 6.01. The
award-winning SmartSAFE eDocument management software provides full
lifecycle management for electronic signing, delivery and retention,
creating enforceable legally-binding electronic contracts, documents
and other records. SmartSAFE facilitates eDelivery, eSigning and
eRetention, with a legal "system of record" providing audit trails
from beginning to the end of the transaction. 
With this latest release, SmartSAFE introduces a secure pipeline for
transmission of any digitally-signed document, along with its
complete audit trail, in a SAFEpackage protected by a tamper evident
seal that can be cryptographically verified by a third party. With a
new 'SAFE to SAFE' feature, customers can securely transfer eSigned
documents between corporate divisions, or even with trusted external
partners. The result is a true paperless document management system
that enables secure collaboration, without compromising security or
"eSignSystems has automated document management from start to finish,
extending secure pipelines that act like a virtual private network
for collaboration and transmission of documents," said Kelly Purcell,
executive vice president of Wave's eSignSystems division. "In
financial services, this allows for cloud signing for example, with a
SmartSAFE that can be accessed by a network of independent agents or
brokers before secure transmission to another SmartSAFE -- at an
insurance carrier; an investor or an IVES vendor handling income
verification. We handle the mechanics of shipping requests and
results between each SmartSAFE at remote or partner locations." 
Mortgage Builder Chooses SmartSAFE to Streamline Loan Origination 
With the mortgage industry moving toward a true paperless
environment, Mortgage Builder Software, Inc. set out last year to
redesign their core loan origination solution, Architect, to leverage
the benefits that a fully-electronic loan origination system can
provide to its customers. The comprehensive solution provides lenders
of all sizes with technology solutions typically only available to
the largest companies -- from pre-qualification and loan origination
through to warehousing. 
"As an end-to-end solution we need to evolve along with, or even
ahead of, industry technology so we chose to partner with
eSignSystems as the industry leader in eDocument lifecycle
management," said Keven Smith, President at Mortgage Builder
Software, Inc. "We're excited to be able to auto-image everything in
the SmartSAFE, then feed those eDocuments back into other systems
through SmartSAFE eDelivery." 
Mortgage Builder's customers are excited by the time and cost savings
that eDocument processes offer, but the added security is the real
sell. "With electronic documents, our customers see a reduction in
errors and optimized workflow," continued Smith. "And they gain peace
of mind knowing that every eDocument features tamper evident seal and
a full audit trail for meeting compliance regulation needs." 
With SmartSAFE, Mortgage Builder clients can now have borrowers
electronically sign their 4506-T form from the convenience of their
home or a field office, and then immediately process that
verification form with the IRS. SmartSAFE 6.01 has also introduced
direct support for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) 4506-T form,
which is used by lenders, insurers and healthcare firms to obtain tax
transcripts for consumer and business income verification. On January
7th, the IRS began accepting electronic signatures on 4506-T form,
removing the final barrier to adoption of eSignatures and paperless
transactions for many financial business sectors.  
About SmartSAFE
 The eSignSystems' SmartSAFE software has been
deployed worldwide in financial services, insurance, government and
healthcare sectors. Maintaining electronically signed records is
essential to the lifecycle of legally binding transactions. Once
created, these electronic records are verified for authenticity and
are securely deposited in SmartSAFE. All records are verified and
authenticated from eDelivery through eRetention; ensuring that the
access or signing credential (i.e. digital certificate, username or
password) is verified and that the records remain free from
tampering. Additionally, the SmartSAFE continuously updates the
status of the transaction's execution for up-to-the-minute reporting
purposes. SmartSAFE software can either be licensed for
private-labeled, on-premise deployment or is available through
eSignSystems' Solution Providers.
