Striata, an application software developer focused on secure electronic communication, has partnered with PeerConnect to ensure regulatory compliance for its secure e-mail billing product.

Striata secure e-mail bills can now include a US Postal Service Electronic Postmark (USPS EPM). The Striata ePostmark combines the digital signature of the sender with a unique official digital signature and timestamp issued by the USPS. The ePostmark is embedded cryptographically inside a USPS branded graphical postmark certificate within the message. It provides a variety of mechanisms aimed at verification – the customer can choose to ‘forward to verify’ or ‘click to verify’ the message.

The solution provides secure electronic billing content with the full protection of the US federal statutes, federal postal regulations, and state laws that apply to postal transactions.
