Symantec Email Fraud Protection automates DMARC defence


Symantec Email Fraud Protection is designed to help organisations automatically prevent fraudulent emails from being delivered.

Symantec Email Fraud Protection [PDF] particularly addresses the growing issue of business email compromise (BEC) attacks.

According to the company, the manual enforcement of email authentication standards such as SPF, DKIM or DMARC can be time-consuming. It can also require highly technical resources to accurately identify third-party email senders without blocking genuine and important emails (false positives).

So Email Fraud Protection removes the manual tasks and automatically monitors approved third-party senders.

The new product integrates with Symantec Email Security to help block threats such as spam, malware, and phishing attacks. It also works with Symantec Email Threat Isolation to help avoid spear phishing, credential theft, account takeover, and ransomware attacks.

"Symantec is focused on delivering business value to customers through our Integrated Cyber Defence Platform. Email Fraud Protection is a great addition to Symantec Email Security, ensuring enterprises are equipped with an automated and comprehensive email security solution," said Symantec senior vice-resident of email security Patrick Gardner.

"Our goal is to give businesses and IT departments time and money back that can be spent elsewhere in the organisation."
