About Our Company and the Evolution of Data Authentication
At DigiStamp, we’re proud that since our founding in 1998 we’ve grown into the TimeStamp Authority operating today. We designed and now maintain the SecureTime systems which produce e-TimeStamps.
DigiStamp’s focus on the customer has generated ten years of growth in an emerging market. Our success reflects our commitment to:
Enhanced security to create legal evidence
Reliable hardware using the accepted standards for a TimeStamp Authority
High customer service rating
Some of our customers:
Our customers use DigiStamp to verify regulatory compliance, manage liability risks, and record possession of intellectual property. When the leading genomics, biotech, and academic research institutions needed to protect their discoveries by “notarizing” their electronic data files, they looked at all options and then chose DigiStamp.
Ensuring strong legal evidence for our customers remains our bedrock service. We provide the tools to prove the authenticity and integrity of electronic records. By the end of 2003, DigiStamp had created more than 1 million timestamps for customers. Not a single DigiStamp timestamp has ever been successfully challenged.
In 2005, we commissioned and completed an external audit so that our timestamp meets the highest standards of strong legal evidence for authenticating computer data.
Every year, we’ve been able to lower prices—for a total reduction of over ninety percent. In 1999, customers correctly saw a $5 timestamp as a good value. Today, we provide an even more technically bullet-proof product for forty cents or less.
We’re proud that state and federal agencies, as well as foreign governments, have sought our advice and our products. From the Supreme Court of Ohio to the Department of Defense to the federal governments of Mexico and Australia, we’re recognized as reliable experts who offer sound thinking as well as a fine product.
