DMARC software, short for Domain-Based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance software, helps businesses ensure that emails sent from company domains are authenticated against two security standards: DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) and Sender-Policy Framework (SPF).
These tools assist with one or more components related to DMARC protocol and help prevent fraudulent activity (such as email spoofing and phishing) that endangers an organization’s employees or clients. DMARC software is used by IT departments when configuring email accounts across an organization, including company-wide domains and department- or individual-specific domains. Determining DMARC alignment and/or enforcing DMARC authentication with these tools can detect and block suspicious email activity designed to appear as legitimate messages from one or more of an organization’s registered web addresses.
DMARC software often integrates with secure email gateway software; some tools in the Secure Email Gateway category may include features related to DMARC compliance. It is increasingly common for other security software tools to address DMARC protocol as a vital component of cybersecurity efforts. Use of DMARC software should coincide with use of other governance, risk and compliance software to align your business practices with any relevant policies. IT compliance services providers can assess your company’s current security measures in relation to standards such as DMARC protocol. Working with cybersecurity consulting providers can help your management and IT teams understand the importance of DMARC enforcement along with other security measures to protect your company and clients from cyberthreats.
