Stop unauthorized and malicious use of your government domain with email authentication
Why email authentication for your government domain?
Email authentication with DMARC has been mandated by DHS to protect U.S. Government agencies (BOD 18-01). When implemented correctly, it provides total visibility of all email senders using your domain as well as 100% protection against hackers spoofing/phishing your domain.
Without DMARC email authentication, your agency is open to spoofing and phishing attacks.

DMARC enforcement is unique in its ability to stop 100% of all malicious email being sent from a protected domain, regardless of who and where the sender is, or to whom the email is being sent. No other technology or security standard provides this level of protection.
Given enough time, money, and resources, they probably can. However, most in-house DMARC implementation projects take over 12 months and are tedious, complex, time-consuming, and expensive. And the risk of mistakes is high, which can cause disruption to important email services and even blocking of good email. Valimail’s secure purpose-built cloud service and expert staff can implement and maintain DMARC enforcement in a fast and cost-effective way.
Google, Microsoft, and all U.S.-based email service providers support DMARC by running authentication checks when receiving email. However, it is up to the owner of the sending domain to publish the correct DMARC policies in DNS. Without setting those policies, email receivers will not be able to authenticate email or block spoofed messages that appear to come from that domain.
Binding Operational Directive (BOD) 18-01, issued by DHS, mandated all federal agencies implement DMARC enforcement within 12 months. BOD 18-01 validated DMARC as the only way to protect agencies, citizens, allies, and businesses from malicious emails appearing to originate from federal .gov domains.
Valimail’s FedRAMP service is available on GSA Schedule 70, NASA SEWP V contract, NASPO ValuePoint Cloud Services Contract, and other agency-specific contract vehicles. Valimail has numerous government reseller partners that qualify under SBA’s small disadvantaged business criteria (HUB zone, SDVOSB, Woman-owned, 8a, Native American Indian, etc.)
