Email – despite its importance, ubiquity, and staying power – has never been secure.
Prior attempts at security have failed to solve email’s fundamental flaw – anyone can send email using someone else’s identity. This flaw has put the power of the world’s most admired brands in criminal hands – through email, criminals can use almost any brand to send spam, fraud, phishing email and malware installs, inflicting direct losses to customers and eroding the brand equity companies have spent years building up.
DMARC – an open standard enabled on 70% of the world’s inboxes and also by the most security-forward brands – is the only solution that enables Internet-scale email protection and prevents fraudulent use of legitimate brands for email cyberattacks.
Many of the most respected brands in the world, including Facebook, JPMorgan Chase and PayPal have adopted DMARC to protect their customers and their brand.
Companies adopt DMARC for many reasons, chief among them are:
- Gain visibility into their email channel to determine the legitimate and fraudulent use of their domains
- Stop brand & email abuse, to decrease reputational risk and preserve brand loyalty through email
- Ensure legitimate email is getting delivered, while fraudulent email is not
- Receive alerts when changes to email infrastructure may impact the delivery of legitimate messages
- Identify sources and forms of threat so that companies are equipped to proactively prevent attacks
