The lead Information Security Engineer at a telecommunications enterprise recognized that it was time to secure the company’s vast domain catalog with DMARC.
As they began cataloging domains and monitoring email flows with a DMARC record, the security engineer learned that recent federal regulations required DMARC in order to maintain government contracts. They knew they needed assistance and partnered with dmarcian to rapidly and accurately deploy DMARC.
With thousands of domains, the company’s DMARC deployment team had a complex task before them. “dmarcian gave me information to work with employees so they could learn about DMARC as a best practice and get third-party services compliant,” says the DMARC Project Manager. “We use a ton of services that send email on our behalf, so it was a huge effort to get all that compliant.”
With expertise from dmarcian, they were able to secure top-level domains as well as parked domains. As part of the DMARC rollout, other related internal teams were brought up to speed on the DMARC project. Now, when they create or acquire a domain, they first add a DMARC record at p=reject so the domain can’t be used illegitimately. “From there, if the domain will be used to send email, we work to establish the DMARC, SPF and DKIM records,” says the DMARC Project Manager. “Starting from that place instead of having to get to that place makes all the difference in the world.”
