Easy Solutions Announces Support For DMARC, To Improve Global Email Health

Clients Gain Significant Uplift in Attack Visibility, Improve Takedown Times Leveraging DMARC

Sunrise, FL. – September 3, 2014 – Easy Solutions®, the Total Fraud Protection® company, today announced that it now supports the use of the DMARC draft specification within its customer base. Easy Solutions’ customers can improve productivity and reduce takedown times for phishing sites by leveraging DMARC and the Detect Monitoring Service (DMS) cloud-based, anti-fraud monitoring solution. Leveraging this new capability, beta customers have already seen 20% uplift in visibility into phishing attacks targeting their brands.

The DMARC industry group was founded in 2012 by leading technology, financial service, media and retail companies to fight email fraud, helping email senders and receivers work together to better secure emails, and thereby protecting users and brands from painful, costly abuse. Most recently, the IETF has created a working group for DMARC, and will be developing the final standard.

DMARC stands for "Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance". It is a technical specification to help reduce the potential for email-based abuse by solving long-standing operational, deployment, and reporting issues related to email authentication protocols. DMARC enables email senders to authenticate legitimate messages and exchange information with email receivers about how to handle unauthenticated messages (monitor, quarantine or delete them).

Easy Solutions’ customers can now benefit from an integrated real-time feed of their DMARC reports with the latest version of the Detect Monitoring Service (DMS), enabling the service to identify and then take down those attacks more efficiently and effectively.

Companies that have implemented DMARC's technology include major email providers such as Google and Microsoft, as well as the largest financial institutions and retailers, such as Amazon, Apple, Bank of America, eBay, Facebook, FedEx, Fidelity Investments, Groupon, JP Morgan Chase, LinkedIn, Netflix, PayPal, Twitter, Western Union, Yelp, YouTube and Zynga.

“Fraudulent email and orchestrated attacks have eroded trust in email as a communications medium to such an extent that it is nearly impossible for major financial institutions, retailers and marketers to authentically communicate with their customers,” said Daniel Ingevaldson, CTO of Easy Solutions. “DMARC shows great promise, not only for securing email channels and reducing the amount of fraudulent or spoofed email but also for improving threat intelligence around targeted attacks. DMARC gives banks, retailers and other institutions the power to effectively project their own policy to the world on how fraudulent email is handled. We are pleased to offer our customers the ability to leverage this emerging standard to improve the health of email communication, reducing the asymmetry they face in this battle against fraudsters.”

Easy Solutions’ Total Fraud Protection platform delivers proactive, integrated, cross-channel fraud protection across transactions performed through online and mobile platforms, as well as via ATMs, Point-of-Sale terminals, and Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems. This ability to quantify and protect against cross-channel risk in real-time continues to grow more critical, as criminals leverage multiple channels to conduct highly sophisticated fraud.
