JIPDEC TO ADOPT EASY SOLUTIONS’ DMARC COMPASS FOR FIRST TIME IN JAPAN
DMARC Compass Supports Strong Email Authentication, Reporting & Conformance
TOKYO and MIAMI, June 13, 2016 – Easy Solutions, (Headquarters: Florida, USA, Representative: CEO Ricardo Villadiego) the Total Fraud Protection® company, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with the Japan Institute for Promotion of Digital Economy and Community (JIPDEC) to provide the DMARC Compass solution, which complies with the internationally recognized Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance (DMARC) email standard. This is the first time the standard has been adopted in Japan. The JIPDEC, which was founded in 1967, works to advance the safe use of digital information to build an information-rich technological society.
“We are pleased that we will be able to help the Japanese business community address increased fraud concerns and incidents with JIPDEC’s adoption of DMARC Compass, an important facet of our multi-layered fraud protection solution. Also, we will be making a great effort to build a society where users in Japan and the Asian market can use email and Internet services safely through DMARC with JIPDEC. We look forward to working with and supporting JIPDEC to further their mission of ensuring safe use of digital information,” said Masafumi Hatakeyama, Easy Solutions Business Development Manager in Japan.
For his part, JIPDEC Business Promotion Office Manager Otaishi Akira said: “JIPDEC has been providing ‘ANSHIN Mark,’ which is a solution to prevent spoofing activities. We are going to adopt the Easy Solutions product for our email environment, and we believe that the adoption of DMARC Compass will make our anti-email spoofing measures stronger. We will continue to further strengthen the dissemination activities through this experience as a best practice.”
The international DMARC specification was developed more than a decade ago in order to provide greater identity assurance of the email message sender. It enables email receivers to authenticate legitimate messages and implement the policy of how to handle unauthenticated messages (monitor, quarantine or delete). With the DMARC Compass product from Easy Solutions, enterprises can leverage this intelligence to clearly understand where phishing attacks originate and shut them down in a faster, more targeted manner. DMARC Compass allows organizations to increase their visibility of authorized sending email and ensure that third-party organizations sending emails on their behalf are recognized as legitimate.
With DMARC Compass, organizations can:
> View analytics on all sent emails associated with a specified domain
> Deny phishers and spammers the ability to spoof a company’s domain
> Identify configuration errors, missing authentication and unauthorized third-party senders
> Reduce attack takedown times through the proactive identification of new threats
> Enable DMARC readiness workflow via web-based gap analysis
Japan Information Processing Development Center (JIPDEC) was established in 1967 as an organization to promote the efforts to resolve the technical and systematic tasks for Japan’s information promotion. JIPDEC has been supporting the safe utilization of information environment construction through various projects such as ‘Privacy Mark’ and the Internet trust business for the realization of the information economy and society.
