Enhance Email Security with DMARC Email Authentication
Imposters Pose a Threat
Fraudsters often pose as government agencies using spear phishing to impersonate a specific person at a government body. Threats have become increasingly sophisticated.
This is just one reason the US Department of Homeland Security has issued BOD-18-01, requiring Federal agencies to implement DMARC as a mechanism to thwart government impersonation.
Many agencies have met the deadline. Others continue to struggle with email systems that are notoriously complicated making it difficult to identify all authorized and un-authorized senders
Secure Email Cloud
Fortra's Agari stays one step ahead of fraudsters because it understands the identity and trust relationships behind the email message. Our solutions know what good emails and sender behavior looks like, so we can stop the bad.
Financial institutions use Agari to fully-automate DMARC implementation. This accelerates deployment, reduces time to enforcement and helps them stay there.
Agari also protects staff from disruptive advanced email attacks and supports the Security Operations Center with workflow automation for incident response.
BOD 18-01 & DMARC
On October 16 2017, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued Binding Operational Directive 18-01 (BOD 18-01).
Among the measures mandated, BOD 18-01 requires that federal government agencies update their email security to adopt security standards widely used across industries: STARTTLS, SPF, DKIM and DMARC.
