DMARC has reshaped the email fraud landscape, disrupted longstanding phishing strategies, and forced cybercriminals to abandon preferred targets. Today, DMARC is still the best remedy in the fight against phishing and spoofing. As its implementation continues to spread outward from early adopters, it has the potential to nullify an entire class of email fraud. As proud founding members of DMARC, we will continue to be at the forefront of innovation, helping companies systematically defend themselves, their employees, and their customers.

Google’s announcement emphasizes is the difference in the architecture on which each solution is based. Google offers a true multi-tenant, scalable, grid architecture that was purpose-built for the cloud. This cloud architecture means that Google does not require any planned downtime and does not provide for any downtime in their SLA. On the other hand, Exchange Online is essentially hosted Exchange in a Microsoft datacenter. Microsoft’s “cloud” is built on the same code base that customers can run in their own datacenter and requires regularly scheduled downtime for updates, patches and hotfixes. This hosted architecture is retrofit for the cloud and it requires organizations to choose one primary data center for their system, typically based off of the organization’s corporate “ship to” address. Having to make this decision can cause performance to suffer in offices that are particularly far from the designated data center.
In an ever-growing global economy, organizations need to make informed decisions about which service providers can best meet their needs. In order for CEO’s to make such decisions, they must first understand which provider is best positioned to handle rapid growth and to make a viable uptime commitment. With this in mind, comparing Microsoft and Google side-by-side begs the question: Which service provider is best positioned to meet these needs — one that was born in the older, client-server architecture who is just now retro-fitting to the cloud and obscuring uptime statistics or one that was born in the cloud on a truly global infrastructure and is completely transparent about its availability?

Just 15 years ago, Google was three employees working out of a garage. Since then, we’ve learned a lot about what it takes to start and grow a business. In particular, we know how important it is to build a brand and to communicate quickly with customers and employees wherever you are.
Gmail for Work or Office 365 can help build your brand. It provides custom email for your business name (firstname.lastname@example.org). You can connect with employees or customers reliably and securely from anywhere and on any devices; laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
There’s 24/7 phone support, and we can help you get an online web address (or domain) if you don’t already have one.
You might expect that the IT department or security team knows who’s sending email using your company’s domains. But for a variety of reasons these groups are often unaware of many legitimate senders — not to mention all the bad actors. Fortunately you can get a more complete view by using DMARC‘s reporting features.
How does it happen? Product teams managing a new product launch or customer survey hire marketing consultants and Email Service Providers (ESP). Affiliate programs or strategic partnerships lead to new domains or sub-domains being created. Employee benefit programs are outsourced, and the vendor wants to use a sending address in your domain. All too often these things are done quietly as part of a small project, without consulting anybody in another department or division.
And then there are all the bad actors using your domains without asking permission…
Emails have been one of the most important channels of communication, particularly for businesses. As more and more individuals have started switching over to mobile text messaging, instant messaging (IMs) or social media, email solutions seems to have lost its sheen. However, this isn’t really true for businesses where emails are still the most popular medium for communication.
What is DMARC, and how does it combat phishing?
- DMARC is a way to make it easier for email senders and receivers to determine whether or not a given message is legitimately from the sender, and what to do if it isn’t. This makes it easier to identify spam and phishing messages, and keep them out of peoples’ inboxes.
- DMARC is a proposed standard that allows email senders and receivers to cooperate in sharing information about the email they send to each other. This information helps senders improve the mail authentication infrastructure so that all their mail can be authenticated. It also gives the legitimate owner of an Internet domain a way to request that illegitimate messages – spoofed spam, phishing – be put directly in the spam folder or rejected outright.
Why is DMARC needed?
End users and companies all suffer from the high volume of spam and phishing on the Internet. Over the years several methods have been introduced to try and identify when mail from (for example) ENMAIN.COM really is, or really isn’t coming from the ENMAIN. However: Continue reading “What is DMARC? Why is DMARC needed?”
Whether it’s searching for a holiday destination or locating a supplier, consumers prefer to look online first because the Internet provides them with what they’re searching for immediately. And it’s this instant access to information, products and services that has played a substantial role in the growth of globalization, allowing companies of all sizes to compete in both local and global marketplaces.
With more than 81 million Indians having access to the Internet and more than 1.9 billion Internet users worldwide, the Web is a rich and powerful tool that offers a wealth of opportunities and benefits to businesses, both big and small. While creating awareness is one of the key benefits, an Internet presence, when used strategically, can greatly help a business increase inquiries for its products and services.
Email is the backbone of any business and managing it well has become mission critical for the company.
Gone are the days when SMEs fret over their changing email needs and affordability of the email solutions and large organisations considered in-premise hosted email solutions for confidentiality, control and better management of mails, despite it being a ‘white elephant solution’.
Today with cloud based email solutions, they can focus more on their core business than spend time on their email solutions.

DMARC, which 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 standardizes how email receivers perform email authentication using the well-known SPF and DKIM mechanisms. This means that senders will experience consistent authentication results for their messages at AOL, Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo! and any other email receiver implementing DMARC. We hope this will encourage senders to more broadly authenticate their outbound email which can make email a more reliable way to communicate.
Email’s Big Upgrade
DMARC is changing the world of email.
Deliverability is changing for the better. Instead of guessing how to get your email delivered, all major email receivers are asking senders to make email easy to identify.
This process is called email authentication, and DMARC is the right way to do it.
DMARC is the building block for modern email reputations systems. If you’re not sending DMARC-ccompliant email, your reputation is a mish-mash of IP addresses, your ESP, and factors that may be beyond your control.
Take control of your reputation by deploying DMARC across your email, and be judged on the email you send!
DMARC is used today to remove fraud from the email channel. You can benefit from the same anti-phishing controls enjoyed by PayPal, Facebook, Twitter, and lots of others.
Redmain helps everyone benefit from the strong security provided by DMARC. Once you accurately deploy DMARC, you can tell receivers to quarantine or reject illegitimate email.

DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) lets an organization take responsibility for a message that is in transit. The organization is a handler of the message, either as its originator or as an intermediary. Their reputation is the basis for evaluating whether to trust the message for further handling, such as delivery. Technically DKIM provides a method for validating a domain name identity that is associated with a message through cryptographic authentication.
DKIM attaches a new domain name identifier to a message and uses cryptographic techniques to validate authorization for its presence. The identifier is independent of any other identifier in the message, such in the author’s From: field.
The first version of DKIM synthesized and enhanced Yahoo!’s DomanKeys and Cisco’s Identified Internet Mail specifications. It was the result of a year-long collaboration among numerous industry players, during 2005, to develop an open-standard e-mail authentication specification. Participants included Alt-N Technologies, AOL, Brandenburg InternetWorking, Cisco, EarthLink, IBM, Microsoft, PGP Corporation, Sendmail, StrongMail Systems, Tumbleweed, VeriSign and Yahoo!. The team produced the initial specification and several implementations. It then submitted the work to the IETF for further enhancement and formal standardization.
