Accelerating DMARC implementation to maintain government compliance is critical.

Enhance Email Security with DMARC Email Authentication

Imposters Pose a Threat

Fraudsters often pose as government agencies using spear phishing to impersonate a specific person at a government body or public agency. Threats have become increasingly sophisticated.

This is just one reason the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued BOD-18-01 back in 2017, requiring Federal agencies to implement DMARC as a mechanism to thwart government impersonation. It's also the reason that the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) also requires the Mail Check tool authentication. 

Many agencies have met the deadline, however there are still a number that continue to struggle with email systems that are notoriously complicated–making it difficult to identify all authorized and unauthorized senders. It doesn't have to be with Agari DMARC Protection!

Set Your DMARC-ations

Fortra's Agari stays one step ahead of fraudsters because it understands the identity and trust relationships behind the email message. Our solutions know what good emails and sender behavior looks like, so we can stop the bad.

Financial institutions use Agari to fully-automate DMARC implementation. This accelerates deployment, reduces time to enforcement and helps them stay there.

Agari also protects staff from disruptive advanced email attacks and supports the Security Operations Center with workflow automation for incident response.

Challenges & Solutions

Always-on protection for your brand and organization.

Getting to DMARC enforcement and staying there is critical to supporting BOD 18-01. This can be costly and time consuming.

Agari accelerates DMARC implementation by continuously analyzing email senders, providing insight into their email authentication capabilities, and offering management tools that give you the confidence to block delivery of unauthorized email.

Agari also provides protection from display name deception and look alike domains to ferret out attacks that would otherwise bypass secure email gateways (SEGs).

Getting Started with DMARC: A Guide for Federal Agencies

Government agencies use Agari to implement enterprise-level email security that meets Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) requirements and protects agency employees from spear phishing attacks.

Unlike legacy security controls that recognize the “digital signature” of an attack, Agari takes the opposite approach — modeling good email and sender behavior that can’t be faked or spoofed.

By understanding the relationships between sender and recipient, Agari recognizes anomalous signs and behaviors within context, and keeps spear phishing attacks out of employee inboxes.

 How to Stop Spear Phishing

Fraudsters routinely target healthcare because an individuals’ personal, credit and protected health information (PHI) are accessible in one place.

Account takeover happens when an employee is tricked into a log in attempt on a fake website or business app, or they unknowingly download malware thinking it’s a necessary software update.

Agari recognizes these attacks because they stand out from the good identities and behaviors modeled over time.

 Protecting Against Account Takeover-Based Email Attacks 

Email provides fraudsters with a convenient way to deliver malware, ransomware, and other viruses. That is because these lack a recognizable “digital signature” so they slip past legacy defenses.

Identity deception is often used to deliver these payloads, which often slip by legacy security defenses like Secure Email Gateways (SEGs).

Luckily, Fortra's Agari is uniquely able to defend against zero-day attacks that have never been seen before to give you the confidence to open and click anything in your inbox.

How Machine Learning Makes the Difference in Defending 

Email security training is part of a layered defense, but in addition to legitimate incidents it can also generate false positives – often many of them.

Agari cuts Security Operations Center response time by up to 95% for employee-reported incident triage, forensics, remediation and breach containment.

Breaches that otherwise take months to discover are detected and contained in mere minutes. And automated impersonation, URL and file analysis detects malicious content that easily evades traditional SEGs.

Compliance, DMARC & Mail Check

If you're based in the US, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is continuously updating its DMARC requirements, or if you're UK-based, DMARC and Mail Check tool compliance requirements are governed by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).

In late 2023, email providers like Google and Yahoo are notified users that they were upping the ante with DMARC requirements of their own. If you haven't set up a DMARC policy or moved towards a policy of Reject, you imminently risk your bulk emails not getting through to your recipients.
