Striata , a global leader and innovator of secure electronic document delivery solutions, has partnered with Epostmarks to enhance security and authentication when delivering statements, bills, collection notices, policies and all other high volume, system generated documents via secure email.
This new offering guarantees email document delivery, increases inbox penetration, adds the legal protection of the United States Postal Service Electronic PostmarkT and significantly enhances consumer trust.
Secure Document Delivery via Email
Due to the dramatic escalation of spam & phishing, businesses are not only faced with the challenge of avoiding spam and junk mail filters, they have to ensure inbox penetration, as well as gain consumer trust. Security and authentication are essential for businesses that rely on email communication.
When email was developed in the 1970s, few predicted the impact it would have on global communications. Today, email is one of the most pervasive forms of communication, used increasingly to speed the flow of information and reduce paper / postage costs. As our dependence on this medium continues to grow, so do business and consumer expectations around what technology can deliver to their inboxes - this includes reliability for high-value communications and security.
Trusted Email Document Delivery
Striata and Epostmarks bring the trust and legal protections of the US Postal Service to email, through the use of the Electronic Postmark® and the protection of the US Postal Inspection Service. The goal is simple: to bring the consumer confidence and trust associated with the physical mailbox to the email inbox.
An unphishable 'Cryptographic Token' embedded in the email is recognized by ISPs, who guarantee delivery of each message. PostmarkedEmail - Protected by the United States Postal Service electronic PostmarkT - is the email analogy of physical first class mail, providing significant additional tracking and auditing capabilities.
PostmarkedEmail also includes visual trust symbols in the inbox and inside the mail to help consumers identify the email as being legitimate. A proprietary email icon in the inbox assures recipients that the email is from a legitimate, trusted source. Emails open with all images turned on and all links active. A rigorous accreditation process ensures that only reputable business and government agencies can send PostmarkedEmail to consumers.
"By adding PostmarkedEmail to our arsenal of email deliverability and inbox penetration technologies / strategies, Striata provides the assurance required by both senders and recipients. PostmarkedEmail allows billers and financial institutions to convert from paper to paperless, while meeting industry compliance regulations", says Garin Toren, Chief Operating Officer at Striata.
