dmarcian has released an instance of its application in an Australian data center.

With a mission of spreading Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance (DMARC) across the world to make email and the internet more trustworthy, dmarcian now provides local service, support and data storage to existing and future Australian customers.

DMARC is an internet-based technical specification that makes email easy to identify and authorize. It is widely supported by email providers including Google, Yahoo, Microsoft and many others.

Recognizing the importance of DMARC in preventing email spoofing, the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) released guidelines, Strategies to Mitigate Cyber Security Incidents and How to Combat Fake Emails, that specifically include DMARC implementation recommendations.

Highly successful DMARC deployments within the Australian federal government include the Department of Parliamentary Services indicating through their spokesperson “that DMARC blocked 31,255 emails, down from 181,000 in one week alone, between December 7 and December 14 last year.”

“The importance of DMARC implementation goes beyond best practice standards but should be considered business as usual,” says Con Lokos, dmarcian’s General Manager for Asia-Pacific. ”The new Sydney-based dmarcian instance will additionally provide data residency assurance.”

When DMARC is deployed against fraudulent email, delivery is simplified, brand reliability increases, and domain-use visibility is available to domain owners. Domain owners can

  • Protect people from spam, fraud, and phishing
  • Monitor domain-wide email usage
  • Comply with industry standards and growing mandates
  • Improve email deliverability

With data now residing in Australia, dmarcian customers now have data stored in-country to comply with the country’s data sovereignty regulations.
