Enterprise software company Citrix said today that it’s acquired RightSignature, one provider of technology that lets people sign files digitally on desktop and mobile devices.

It sounds like the acquisition won’t make a huge difference to current RightSignature customers.

“Our team is committed to fulfilling our original vision,” the startup’s founder and chief executive Daryl Bernstein, wrote in a blog post on the news. “We will continue to provide the best electronic signature software on the market, deliver innovative features and improvements, and support you with friendly, responsive service. And now, with the resources and scale of Citrix, RightSignature truly will change the way the world does business.”

RightSignature, which charges for its services on a monthly basis, competes with DocuSign and Adobe’s Echosign, among others. The startup’s software integrates with Citrix’s cloud-based ShareFile file-transferring service; it also integrates with Google Docs. RightSignature can also authenticate users by snapping a picture using the cameras on devices.

RightSignature started in 2009 and was based in Santa Barbara, Calif. On the FAQ page of the startup’s website, RightSignature says it’s “privately funded, for now.”
