White Paper: 5 Big Myths about DMARC, Debunked

White Paper: 5 Big Myths about DMARC, Debunked

With email attacks contributing to billions of lost dollars each year, a growing number of organisations are adopting Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance (DMARC) in an effort to protect themselves and their customers from fraudsters.

Adoption of DMARC has steadily gained traction, and more than 70% of all email inboxes worldwide support this standard for detecting identity-based fraudulent email attacks. The email authentication protocols at the heart of DMARC, first introduced in 2012, have proven extremely effective at stopping billions of email attacks from ever reaching their targets.

But that’s only when it’s done right. Unfortunately, there are a number of myths about DMARC that could hinder deployments and undermine efforts to thwart attacks. Let’s debunk five of the most prevalent:

  • Myth #1: Deploying DMARC is easy
  • Myth #2: DMARC prevents all email attacks
  • Myth #3: Establishing a DMARC record means you’re protected
  • Myth #4: DMARC is only needed for domains that send email
  • Myth #5: DMARC is all you need
