Introducing DMARC Analyzer: Boosting Email Security for Your Business

DMARC Analyzer Boosts Email Security

If your organization is searching for ways to boost cybersecurity, your email platform is an ideal place to start. Our clients are having success with Mimecast’s DMARC Analyzer. Not familiar with this kind of tool? Here are the basics: 

What Is DMARC? 

DMARC (domain-based message authentication, reporting  and conformance) is an essential email authentication protocol designed to combat email spoofing, phishing and other security threats. It provides domain owners with control over their outbound email channel, ensuring that only legitimate emails are delivered to recipients. 

Why DMARC Matters 

Email security is critical for businesses of all sizes. Without proper authentication, cybercriminals can impersonate your organization, leading to financial losses, data breaches and damage to your reputation. DMARC Analyzer helps address these risks by validating the authenticity of outbound emails. 

How DMARC Works 

  1. Leveraging existing techniques: Analyzer builds upon two existing email authentication methods: 
    • SPF (sender policy framework): A list of authorized senders for a domain
    • DKIM (DomainKeys identified mail): Verifies that the email body hasn’t been modified during transit
  2. Setting DMARC policies: Analyzer allows three settings:
    • None: Gain insight into email sources without affecting delivery
    • Quarantine: Deliver failing emails to recipients’ spam folders
    • Reject: Block failing emails altogether
  3. Providing analysis: Analyzer offers critical reporting:
    • Mimecast’s DMARC Analyzer turns raw XML DMARC reports into user-friendly charts
    • Provides visibility into email sources and DMARC compliance
    • Monitors DNS records for changes and sets up automated alerts

Benefits for Your Business 

How can DMARC Analyzer work for your organization? Some of the benefits include:

  • Enhanced email security: DMARC prevents unauthorized emails from reaching your customers, protecting your brand and clients
  • Revenue opportunity for MSPs: Managed service providers (MSPs) can offer DMARC as a managed service to clients, creating a new revenue stream
  • PCI compliance: Financial services organizations and payment processors must implement DMARC by March 2025 to comply with PCI standards
