Topsec DMARC Protection is a robust email security solution against hackers misusing your domain
Domain-Based Message Authentication Reporting, more often known as DMARC, is an email security protocol that checks if the email sent to you is sent by the authentic owner of that email address or not.
It is based on the Domain Naming System (DNS) practise and utilises the open protocols of SPF and DKIM to verify the email sender’s authenticity. The DNS serves as a naming database that helps verify Internet domain names according to their corresponding Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.
The email you receive is cross-checked through the DNS system to ensure the sender’s IP address and internet domain names are aligned.
When DMARC notices a difference between the email sender and the actual email address, it will automatically initiate a process that notifies the email receiver about the doubtful mail.
The email security system will also provide a report to the original email address holder to verify whether they sent the mail or if anyone else is misusing it.
DMARC helps companies maintain brand trust among each other by diminishing the threat carried by non-validated and fraudulent emails.
