DMARC & Email Security – What does it mean for your business?

May 17, 2024 | 1 min read


Email security is key to protecting your organisation. One of the most effective ways to safeguard you from email fraud is by implementing DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance). Here’s what you need to know about DMARC and why it’s crucial.

What is DMARC?

DMARC is an email validation protocol designed to detect and prevent email spoofing. It builds upon two other authentication protocols, SPF (Sender Policy Framework) and DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail), providing a way for domain owners to define how their legitimate emails should be handled and offering feedback on suspicious activity.

Key Benefits of DMARC:

  1. Prevents Phishing and Spoofing: DMARC helps prevent malicious actors from impersonating your domain to send fraudulent emails. This protects your clients, partners, and employees from phishing attacks.
  2. Improves Deliverability: With DMARC, your legitimate emails are more likely to reach the recipient’s inbox instead of being marked as spam, improving the reliability of your communication.
  3. Provides Visibility: DMARC generates reports that allow you to monitor and understand how your domain is being used, giving you insight into potential threats.
