Are DMARC and/or EasyDMARC new to you, and are you feeling confused about it all? We are here to help you clear it up!
What is DMARC?
DMARC is an email authentication protocol. It was developed as an improvement and extension of the existing protocols of SPF and DKIM. As it was presented in 2012, DMARC is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. And we can say it is a succesful one! After 10 years on the market, DMARC is a leading security protocol used by billions of mailboxes around the globe. That amount is still growing, as more and more companies recognize the need for strong cybersecurity.
The development of DMARC resulted from a collaboration between fifteen member organizations that wanted to improve email security protocols together. These fifteen member organizations include some of the biggest names of the Internet. You can feel secure, knowing that you are using a protocol created, approved and used by giants like Facebook, Google, Hotmail, LinkedIn and PayPal.
But what exactly is DMARC? Boiled down to the essentials, DMARC verifies whether the sender of an email that claims to be from your domain actually has your permission for sending this email. Utilizing DMARC prevents hackers from sending unwanted emails from your domain. Meanwhile, it also helps increase your deliverability rate for the emails you actually want to send. That results in loyal customers, who trust you and your company. You can read all about DMARC works exactly on the official DMARC website.
It is important to know that DMARC by itself is not a tool you can buy. It is a protocol that is deployed in the form of a adding a domain record to the DNS. Of course, you can do this yourself, but you need to know what you are doing. If you make a mistake, all of your emails may actually end up marked as spam, which is the opposite of what you want to achieve. So, if you or your end customers are not comfortable doing this alone, EasyDMARC comes to the rescue!
