Granular Visibility

Email Fraud Defense gives you visibility across your email ecosystem to help you understand who is sending email on your behalf with a full view into the email traffic coming into, and going out of your organization. Email Fraud Defense not only analyzes and interprets DMARC reports, but also enriches them with robust message samples. Gain insights into authentication failures and differentiate between anomalies and real issues that need attention.

  • Monitor all emails sent using your domains – whether they’re sent from you or by third-parties

  • Understand the reasons behind – and learn how to fix – each authentication failure

“Simply put, the DMARC standard works. In a blended approach to fight email fraud, DMARC represents the cornerstone of technical controls…to rebuild trust and retake the email channel for legitimate brands and consumers.”

– Edward Tucker, Head of Cyber Security, Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC)
