Truedomain Teams With Goodmail To Stop Phishing

Solution ensures delivery of legitimate email, prevents brands from being used as bait in phishing attacks
MOUNTAIN VIEW and MENLO PARK, Calif., Sept. 9, 2010 -- Goodmail Systems', the creator of CertifiedEmail™, the industry standard for trusted-class email, today announced a distribution partnership with Truedomain', a trusted provider of authentication and antiphishing solutions, that gives email senders the key analytics and intelligence to monitor email performance and protect their domains and brands from being used in phishing attacks. Integrated with and accessible through Goodmail’s CertifiedEmail family of products, the Truedomain Antiphishing NetworkTM offers a standards-based authentication network with a comprehensive feedback loop and analytics layer to provide the highest level of phishing protection for email.

The combination of the multi-tiered and standards-based email authentication technology provided by Truedomain and Goodmail’s use of cryptographically secure tokens to ensure email sender authenticity provides Goodmail’s customers the best of both worlds - a solution that not only ensures delivery of legitimate email, but also prevents brands from being used as bait in phishing attacks.

“Phishing scams continue to proliferate online at alarming rates, eroding users’ trust in the Internet and email,” said Daniel Dreymann, president and co-founder at Goodmail'. “Through our partnership with Truedomain we will be able to provide customers with the definitive solution for protecting their brands from being hijacked or used as phishing bait for online scam artists. We will also have the ability to further extend the value we bring to our clients through expanded relationships with Truedomain’s ISP network, covering over 300 million email accounts.”

Goodmail’s CertifiedEmail is available to senders meeting strict standards for best email practices and low complaint rates. As trusted-class email, all CertifiedEmail messages are delivered to users’ inboxes with links and images automatically on by default. End users are presented with a unique blue-ribbon envelope trustmark icon at participating mailbox providers, identifying senders’ messages as real and from a legitimate sender.

The Truedomain Antiphishing Network combines a cloud-based email authentication clearinghouse and analytics platform with direct ISP integration to give email senders direct insight into email authentication results, phishing and spoofing activity and delivery performance. Together with the ability to implement and enforce email filtering policies based on authentication against widely adopted industry standards including DKIM, Domainkeys and SPF, Truedomain delivers the most effective email monitoring and antiphishing solution available. As a result, email senders and their customers benefit from the prevention of email borne financial and identity theft threats, reduced operational and support costs associated with phishing activity, and greatly improved protection of their investment in and reputation of their brands in the marketplace.

“We are delighted to join forces with Goodmail to protect our mutual customers’ brands and strengthen trust in their online identities,” said Robert Pickup, Founder & CEO of Truedomain. “Our integrated solution not only expands the range of email delivery and security offerings that Goodmail can provide to their customers, but also extends the access to antiphishing and brand protection benefits that Truedomain provides to a broader range of brands and email senders.”
