DMARC policies

80% of companies lack DMARC policies against spoofing!

DMARC is a technology advancement in preventing email and domain spoofing. Inspite of being industry standard, 80 % of companies lack DMARC implementation according to a report published by 250ok. DMARC is a sender-published policy for email messages that fail authentication. By deploying and monitoring DMARC, brands lower the likelihood their domains are spoofed and used for phishing attacks on recipients, including customers, clients, and employees, amongst others. DMARC policies are designed to be an incremental process, from a simple reporting-only system to a strict policy where messages failing authentication are rejected without being delivered or seen by the intended recipient.

A 2018 study from the Anti-Phishing Working Group reported a decline in reported phishing attacks during Q4 2018. However, this is not due to less attacks, but instead, phishing is simply getting harder to detect, thanks to new tactics like multiple redirects and valid security certificates. In fact, there was a 29.8% increase in phishing scams targeting SaaS companies in an attempt to get data and credentials.

Phishing is still the leading cause of data breaches, and more data was compromised in 2018 than ever before, even though there were fewer major breaches than in 2017. More education and better tools to manage authentication are necessary as many records are improperly formatted, incomplete, or not actually enforcing a policy.

With DMARC into practice, spoofed emails in your domains get rejected avoiding any CEO to CFO level of fraud attacks. It is really challenging to tell apart a fake email from an authentic one. Email providers keep struggling in deciding authentic harmless emails to be delivered to users against the fake harmful emails to reject. DMARC is the solution for these problems. It helps email senders and receivers work together to better secure emails, protecting users and brands from painfully costly abuse.

DMARC is a powerful tool that helps your organization:

  1. Obtain complete clarity and control over all your email channels.
  2. Authenticate and improve the deliverability of your emails.
  3. Block inbound attacks and safeguard your brand name.
  4. Publish an efficient policy that instructs ISP’s to deliver or delete emails.
