You wouldn’t try to board an international flight without your passport, right? Would you go on a cross-country road trip without your driver’s license? Hopefully not. Then why are still sending emails out without using proper authentication? DMARC, SPF, DKIM, and BIMI are the main email authentication standards that help ISPs identify mailings as safe and secure. Much like a passport or ID, these standards indicate to inbox providers that your mail is secure and actually coming directly from you rather than a different organization that may be spoofing your domain.
It’s not hard to recognize the importance of email authentication and yet only 50% of the 2,000 listed publicly traded companies have established a DMARC record. While we can’t force companies to make the right decision by implementing email authentication, we can impress upon them the importance of doing so. That’s why we teamed up with the experts at dmarcian to create a comprehensive resource called Why Email Authentication Matters.
