A community college’s IT Security Team was researching the controls needed to secure its domain and email to protect student, faculty, staff and alumni and noticed the rise of DMARC in discussion forums and posts.
“There were indications that the Department of Education may soon require the adoption of DMARC. Experience was a substantial factor when we began searching for a DMARC partner. We read that one of the founders of dmarcian was instrumental in drafting the original standard; that knowledge gave us comfort and confidence in the expertise of dmarcian. When evaluating each of the vendors, it was clear that dmarcian was a leader, understood higher education, and worked with other higher education customers.”
“Early on we had no idea it would be so challenging to work with specific vendors. It was surprising to interact with other vendors who didn’t have depth in their expertise. In working with the dmarcian sales, support and compliance services teams, the college gained clarity and a better understanding of SPF, DKIM and DMARC.”
“It isn’t out of the realm of possibility for an email expert to figure out DMARC and implement it. That said, there are a lot of folks on small information security teams that have some knowledge about email but perhaps not the details of DNS management. The manner in which dmarcian educated us, was transparent, and helped us forge a path to compliance is unique in technology and definitely something that stood out in the process with them.”
