Email Security and why it matters.
 

Let's dive into the importance of email security! Without robust protection, malicious actors can impersonate you and send deceptive emails to your clients or partners, attempting to manipulate them into making unauthorized payments or divulging sensitive information.

 

By implementing effective email security measures, such as those provided by Realm Defense, you can establish a secure communication environment. This ensures that your customers and vendors can trust the legitimacy of the emails they receive from you, preventing any attempts at impersonation.

Realm Defense offers three key email security configurations to fortify your communication channels. These measures not only safeguard your reputation but also protect the confidentiality and integrity of the information exchanged between you and everyone you communicate with. Let's explore these security measures in detail to bolster your email communication defenses.

Parallel Lines

1

SPF: or Sender Policy Framework

SPF identifies the mail servers and domains that are allowed to send email on behalf of your domain. Receiving servers check your SPF record to verify that incoming messages that appear to be from your organization are sent from servers allowed by you. Domains can have one SPF record.

2

DKIM: or DomainKeys Identified Mail

DKIM is designed to detect forged sender addresses in email, a technique often used in phishing and email spam. DKIM allows the receiver to check that an email that claimed to have come from a specific domain was indeed authorized by the owner of that domain.

3

DMARC: or Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance

 DMARC helps mail servers prevent attackers from spoofing your email addresses by comparing the information found within SPF and DKIM. If there’s no match DMARC automatically quarantines the email protecting your org.

The unfortunate reality is that many organizations are unaware of the crucial measures mentioned above, and even if they are aware, they may not have them configured properly. The silver lining? Realm Defense is well-versed in these security protocols, and we can ensure that all the necessary configurations are in place to prevent hackers from impersonating your organization. With our expertise, your customers and their email systems can consistently trust the authenticity of communications originating from your domain.
