In the next few weeks we will be featuring promising and successful New Zealand BizSpark startups and ISVs on this blog.

This week’s featured startup is Secured Signing. Secured Signing is one of the first members to graduate from our BizSpark program, and here are more details about their secure digital signature solution and how they have used Microsoft products to implement it.

We use the following Microsoft Products

· Windows Server 2008 R2

· Windows Server 2008 Web Edition

· SQL Server 2008

· Visual Studio 2010

· Team Foundation Server 2010

Secured Signing wouldn’t have been possible without the subsidised use of these Microsoft products. They allowed us to develop a system using the latest techniques and products that can compete on a commercial scale and make us very competitive. Having used Visual Studio for a number of years, the access to updates make developing a pleasure compared to other options.

Microsoft’s continued focus and efforts on fixing bugs and security issues gives us peace of mind by putting the Secure into Secured Signing.

We find the amount of developer support for the ASP.Net platform second to none after experiencing other platform providers support.

Our Windows based systems just keep on ticking as they should and provide us vital stability.

We love having access to the Team Foundation Server platform which makes versioning control a breeze. SQL Server along with the LINQ-SQL framework is great for development.

Stay tuned for more startups and ISVs to be featured here in the coming weeks!
