All Mountain Technologies is now implementing enhanced e-mail security with DMARC to their standard set of tools and is offering it to all engaged clients as part of their base Always-On managed service. Read on to find out more about this vital email security offering and how it can benefit your business.

WHY IS DMARC IMPORTANT AND WHAT DOES IT DO?

E-mail impersonation, phishing, and spoofing are the most popular ways for cyber criminals to access your business systems and data and damage your brand in the process.

These three tactics are so successful because they exploit human weakness. Employees have a tendency to click on emotion-laden email subjects without validating the emails address. Thus leaving your systems wide open for a cyber attack.

For example, “Change of Password Required Immediately” and “Microsoft/Office 365: De-activation of Email in Process” are two of the most popular phishing subject lines that are impersonated and get clicked on by employees who panic thinking it’s real and let hackers in the front door.

One of the best ways to stop email impersonation, phishing, and spoofing is to filter it out before it gets to your business in-box. DMARC does just that, stops unauthorized domains from emailing your company.

DMARC analyzes and validates all emails coming to your business and blocks all that are unauthorized.

HOW IT WORKS

The DMARC authentication solution is so successful because it only allows legitimate domains, identified by your business organization, to come through to your employees’ inboxes, all others are blocked.

In addition, DMARC quarantines all failed messages and sends a report to alert management allowing email addresses and domains to be easily updated as needed.

WHY SHOULD YOUR BUSINESS USE IT?

  • DMARC authenticates the “header from” email address AND the domain, and effectively blocks all unwanted and unintended emails and domains.
  • By blocking all unwanted emails, DMARC not only makes your systems more secure but can also save your business up to 30 minutes, per person, per week because employees no longer have to sift through their email deciding what is spam, it has already been done for them.
  • Lastly, DMARC discourages cyber criminals because they are less likely to go after a company with a DMARC record, thus keeping your business out of the cross-hairs.
