The domain associated with your corporate website (for example www.COMPANY NAME.com) that you use to generate sales and leads, and that you use for your company email address (for example, info@COMPANY NAME.com) is invaluable to your business. This one domain, which often includes the company or brand name, is the linchpin of your digital operations. For this reason, a sophisticated security concept is needed to protect this domain. If you lose control of this domain, whether due to malicious intent by criminal third parties or due to unintentional
errror, many companies suffer direct financial losses within a few minutes. This often results in reputational damage because the corporate website is unreachable or the central company email communication channel collapses. With the loss of just one domain, the company can be faced with hefty consequences. Financial damage, possibly in the seven-digit range, is not uncommon. On the other hand, the damage to the company's reputation can hardly be sufficiently expressed in monetary terms.
InterNetX offers SPF, DKIM and DMARC to protect email traffic. SPF (Sender Policy Framemwork) prevents the sender address of an e-mail from being forged. The domain holder specifies, in the DNS, which mail transfer agents (MTAs) are authorized to send emails for the relevant domain. DKIM (DomainKey Protocol) ensures the authenticity of email senders and helps minimize spam and phishing. Finally, with DMARC, the email sender can also determine how the recipient handles an email that does not meet SPF and/or DKIM requirements. This ensures consistent verification of the email authenticity.
