Features and Benefits

Simplify your DMARC journey without blocking legitimate mail flow

Streamline your DMARC deployment

Dedicated consultants guide you through each step of your rollout. We start with a customizable project plan with guided workflows. Our consultants help:

Getting Started with DMARC

Fully protect your organizations’ reputation

Common business email compromise (BEC) attack tactics include:

  • Domain spoofing: "Company <"
  • Lookalike domain spoofing: "Company <"

We help you prevent fraudsters from sending emails that use your trusted domains—and domains designed to mimic them. Our solution helps you:

  • Get 360-degree visibility across your ecosystem, including emails destined for business gateways and your own gateway
  • Dynamically identify lookalikes of your domains registered by people outside of your organization
  • See which of your domains attackers have attempted to hijack
  • Proactively address malicious lookalikes of your domain with our Virtual Takedown Service

Get visibility into supplier risks

With our solution, you can go beyond DMARC and get visibility into your supplier risk with Supplier Risk Explorer.  We help you:

  • Automatically identify your suppliers
  • See message volume and the email delivered from malicious lookalikes of your suppliers’ domain
  • Assesse and prioritize the risk suppliers pose to your organization, including impostor threats, phishing, malware and spam
