DMARC is an email authentication protocol designed to prevent domain spoofing.
Domain spoofing, where an attacker uses a company’s domain to impersonate someone in the company, is an increasingly widespread cybersecurity attack. In fact, over 96% of companies experience domain spoofing, yet only one-third of organizations use DMARC, according to the Federal Trade Commission.
