Implementing DMARC is not only tricky but also has various downsides if “only” DMARC is configured.
Ever since email security has introduced Domain-based Message Authentication Record Confirmation (DMARC) protocol, many organizations started opting for this standard. DMARC is an email authentication protocol whose purpose is to secure emails from spoofing and phishing attacks. Various organizations are turning to implementing DMARC, but it seems like most of them haven’t found the right way to configure it.
As a critical benefit, DMARC helps IT administrators in getting control over cloud services. Okay not exactly, but it helps them in finding which cloud service is sending spoofed emails.
Even though DMARC offers various cyber-security benefits, but when it comes to its implementation, many companies fail at it. In a research, it was found that ample of companies either faced configuration errors or some did not turn on the DMARC enforcement mode. None of them were able to properly implement email authentication.
This is where KDMARC comes in the picture. Kratikal, a cyber-security solution providing company, is globally acknowledged for its attack simulator and security awareness tool. One of our successful products is KDMARC which offers to provide one-stop solution for email security.
KDMARC helps in proper configuration of DMARC by changing default settings according to the requirement in no time. Along with that, this tool helps in user in getting domain summary of past seven days with the report of threats incurred. As a matter of fact, there are many scenarios KDMARC is important for DMARC implementation.
DMARC shortfalls when it comes to simultaneous implementation of SPF on multiple domains. If an organization uses multiple domains, the email security of those domains is necessary for preventing any kind of cyber-attack.
KDMARC makes sure that all the domains have efficient SPF implementation, running simultaneously.
The main objective of email security is to provide email spoofing prevention. Without proper implementation of DMARC, it cannot happen. KDMARC is a proper DMARC generator tool that alerts organization of the sources that try to forge its domain name.
With DMARC, you set the policies but cannot understand the mail flow whereas on the other hand, KDMARC not only helps you in setting the policies according but also gives the analysis of mail flow.
DMARC does not offer the advantage of dynamic SPF. DMARC takes more time to change the record for every individual domain but with KDMARC, it can happen instantly without wastage of time.
Updating DMARC takes a long time which might leave you vulnerable to attacks for some time period. Implementation of DMARC with provision KDMARC gives you the benefit of dynamic DMARC. KDMARC helps you in updating DMARC within the short span of time through DNS.
