DEMARC Email Security
You just received a strange email from email@example.com.
You know Bob. You call Bob and he explains one of two things.
- Bob apparently got a virus and Bob’s computer started sending out emails from Bob’s PC.
- Bob has been in the hospital, his computer has been turned off. There is no way Bob’s PC sent the email. Thus, the email was spoofed from another source.
Demarc prevents others from spoofing your email
Establishing a proper DEMARC record on your domain guards against email spoofed from a unauthorized source imposing as firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s a thing your IT guys does with your domain register such as Godaddy. The setting tells receivers of “your” emails how to handle failed security tests.
More technically, a DMARC policy allows a sender to indicate that their messages are protected by SPF and/or DKIM, and tells a receiver what to do if neither of those authentication methods passes – such as junk or reject the message. DMARC removes guesswork from the receiver’s handling of these failed messages, limiting or eliminating the user’s exposure to potentially fraudulent & harmful messages.
In short, DEMARC protects your email brand. Take this test. You will find our record and that of many respected companies are “all green”
Many IT consultants don’t establish Demarc records for themselves nor for their customers
First lookup at our fully secure and properly setup Demarc record. We use a popular industry tool not at all connected with our Infotel Systems.
infotelsystems.com gets all green check marks. So do the “FANG” technology companies facebook.com, amazon.com, apple.com, netlfix.com, microsoft.com, google.com. So do the popular email domains yahoo.com and aol.com but gmail.com and hotmail.com have not yet adopted.
