Reports generated from our DMARC Management Platform give you insight into what is happening with a particular aspect of your domains. A useful resource to keep decision makers and stakeholders informed and updated relative to DMARC deployment and maintenance, reports help to bridge this gap. For dmarcian’s MSP and MSSP Partners, reports can be utilized to provide information to their client base. Since MSP clients can’t view their domain details on the dmarcian platform, reports are a way MSPs can keep their clients informed of their DMARC project. The following reports can be generated from our platform: Domain Status Reports: contains domain status information including email authentication deployment state and volume statistics. This report is based on the past seven days of data from the time it was generated. Issue Summary Reports: lists outstanding issues related to email authentication deployment. Account Progress Reports: provides an overview of all domains in
One of the outstanding features of DMARC is the feedback you get related to email sent from any source using your domain as the RFC5322 identity (friendly from). However, this is contingent on the receiver’s email security provider having the ability to perform DMARC verification on inbound email as well as sending the result of those checks in the form of an aggregate report. One such solution is Cisco’s Cloud Email Security (CES). When DMARC authentication for inbound email is enabled, the CES appliance can be configured to send DMARC aggregate reports containing the results of those inbound checks. This data is critical for domain owners relative to their DMARC deployment efforts. These reports are helpful, but more helpful yet is to know who is sending these reports. Knowing the source of the reports is beneficial if you need to follow up with them; better yet, you can easily identify
The dmarcian team categorizes the sources we see our customers use and include resources that assist in configuring sources to send DMARC-compliant email. Sometimes, however, we are unable to find any publicly available documentation on how to achieve DMARC compliance for a particular source—a service that sends email on behalf of another domain. In these cases, the customer must reach out to the source, or vendor, to request assistance. “Not all third-party providers officially support DMARC, and their first response may be negative,” says Ash Morin, dmarcian’s Director of Deployment. “However, the reality is that they may simply not understand the scope of the request. In our experience, a service provider will often find out that they are in fact capable of supporting DMARC once the requirements are explained clearly to them.” If you find yourself in a situation where you need to contact a source but don’t know what
