We recently teamed up with Farsight Security to analyze data on the current state of email security, email fraud and DMARC adoption. Our inaugural “Email Fraud and DMARC Adoption Trends Report” summarizes the state of email authentication across industries from the second half of 2017. This is the only DMARC focused report that incorporates data from Agari’s Email Threat Center as well as Farsight DNSDB, the world’s largest real-time and historical database of DNS records.
The report exposes some distinct trends in the state of email security, confirmed many theories and revealed some surprising facts. A few examples:
The breadth of the data available from Farsight DNSDB also gave an illuminating peek into the relative market share of DMARC implementation services vendors. When we tallied up the aggregate reporting email addresses used of DMARC-carrying domains identified in Farsight DNSDB, we were pleased to see that Agari was by far the leader in terms of domains protected or monitored.
More importantly, Agari also led the pack when it came to the percentage of domains with enforcement policies. Over 70% of domains using Agari were at a p=reject policy, versus 40% with the next nearest vendor.
