Introducing DMARC Validation in Symantec Email Security.cloud
One of the oldest tricks in the book for spammers is to spoof or forge the “From” address so that the email appears to come from a legitimate source.
- Big, popular brands are often used in phishing and scam email attacks.
- Over 80,000 domains have published DMARC policies and since 2011 it has been quickly adopted by some of the largest global brands and email senders.
DMARC plays a very important role here, let’s understand, what is DMARC and why is it so important.
DMARC stands for “Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance”, is a technical specification created by a group of organizations that want to help reduce the potential for email-based abuse by solving a couple of long-standing operational, deployment, and reporting issues related to email authentication protocols.
DMARC addresses these issues, helping email senders and receivers work together to better secure emails, protecting users and brands from painfully costly abuse
Symantec has introduced DMARC Validation as a free upgrade for Email Security.cloud customers, further enhancing protection against these types of spam, targeted attacks and phishing messages.
Once customers enable this new functionality, Symantec will automatically check if sending domain owners have a published DMARC policy and check that the email is legitimate.
