DMARCSaaS is a fully automated and managed service. This means that it keeps you informed and updated about the actions that need to be taken. These instructions are clearly explained with examples.
In addition, you will receive notifications from our automated system when there are further steps to be completed. This is in accordance with the DMARCSaaS workflow, and includes changes to your public DNS servers. In this way we work collectively and gradually towards the strongest DMARC policy possible: “p=reject” ensuring you will be much better protected against phishing and spam.
DMARCSaaS consists of two separate phases: the implementation, and the subsequent monitoring period:
The following steps are automated by DMARCSaaS during the setup period:
Analysis of the initial SPF, DKIM and DMARC settings of the email domain (s)
Based on the analysis from step 1, clear instruction steps for the changes in the public DNS (SPF, DKIM and DMARC) and email server are provided. These are to be carried out by the client’s email administrator.
The correct input of the instructional steps are verified automatically.
The results of each instruction step are analyzed.
Each analysis is followed by the next instruction, verification and analysis. This is repeated until the final goal is reached: a strict (“reject”) DMARC policy.
The gradual and controlled setup period will be closed after the DMARC security policy has been brought to the final “reject” goal. After this successful completion, the organization dictates its own email authentication security policy to the outside world. In addition, your organization will also check for SPF, DKIM and DMARC.
This monitoring period is required as some records will or need to change such as for added email services or obsolete IP’s , rendering the old records ineffective. DKIM key rotation will be initiated when life-time of current DKIM encryption keys has become due to maintaining their effectiveness. Next in the monitoring period potential misuse will be detected. This process includes the following steps:
Verifying and testing the SPF, DKIM and DMARC records of the email domain (s).
The results of the verifications are analyzed and presented. In addition, the DMARC reports on delivered emails and abuse are merged into one clear report in the dashboards in your portal. This provides your organization with continuous insight into potential attempts at abuse and the effectiveness of DMARCSaaS.
Automatic and continuous tracking of active and inactive domains of your email servers by means of potential clean-up advice of redundant SPF records and automated advice for digital key management for DKIM records. As a result, the email protection set-up level by DMARCSaaS remains healthy over time.
DMARCSaaS is based on analytic Artificial Intelligence software developed in-house and hosted in the public cloud. This automatically managed software is designed and maintained by experienced email security consultants.
You can follow the setup process and the results via dashboards in your client portal. In the portal, you will find the statuses of SPF, DKIM and DMARC per specified domain.
DMARCSaaS offers several advantages over its competitors. The DMARCSaaS service distinguishes itself from its competitors as DMARCSaaS includes all consultancy, or professional service costs, into one automated service. This eliminates the need to purchase separate modules for consultancy or professional services.
