It is only a matter of time before a criminal will use your domain for their own benefit. Whether the criminal activity is phishing, malware distribution, or nuisance spam, it harms your brand to be associated with these attacks.
Increased Email Deliverability
Even legitimate messages may wind up in the spam folder if the receiver can’t tell the good from the bad. By deploying DMARC, you can improve deliverability of your legitimate messages while eliminating the fraudulent ones.
Fewer Customer Service Calls
Customers will not call or send email to ask about phishing messages if they never receive those messages in the first place. One Agari customer was able to redeploy 60 staff members after publishing a reject policy on a highly phished domain.
Visibility Into Cyberattack Risk
Do you know every third-party company sending email on behalf of your company? While third-party senders are needed, each time you provide customer, employee, or partner details to a third-party, you increase the risk of cyberattacks. DMARC enables you to see every third-party sending on your behalf to ensure they comply with email best practices.

What is BEC?
Business email compromise (BEC) is an inbound threat where attackers impersonate company officials using legitimate domains and send deceptive emails requesting wire transfers to alternate, fraudulent accounts. This often results in successful intrusion and access to victims’ credentials.
DMARC Addresses a Portion of Inbound Threats
When configured correctly, DMARC stops phishing attacks where the attacker sends an email with a ‘From’ address that appears to originate from a protected domain. While this makes it ideal for outbound phishing prevention, it can also mitigate certain advanced threats found in inbound traffic sent to employees.
