Why Does Japan Need DMARC Protection? 

Email phishing is responsible for more than 9 out of every 10 data loss incidents in the world. That’s more than any other single factor making organizations like yours lose sensitive data. Worse yet, they could be using your brand name to target the general public—your customers—and causing them to lose trust in your brand.

Email Spoofing in Japan is Major Threat

As of May 2020, Japan has just over 4600 domains implementing DMARC, placing it 36th on the list of countries with protected domains. This leaves the vast majority of Japan’s registered domains unprotected against cyberattacks. What’s more, not all users will have it enforced — you’re only DMARC-enforced when you set your policy to quarantine or reject.

DMARC Compliance in Japan

  • Japan is one of the world’s largest economies and an extremely active population on the web, yet their DMARC adoption lags far behind most of their western peers. However, certain interesting developments could potentially boost Japan’s email security compliance to among the world’s highest. 

  • Japan’s two main local ISPs, Softbank and NTT have expressed interest in adopting DMARC. If these organizations are able to successfully implement the standard, it could skyrocket Japan’s DMARC coverage to over 75%.

Why is DMARC Important?

Most domains use protocols like SPF or DKIM to stop email spoofing. While these are useful, they have flaws an attacker can exploit. DMARC, on the other hand, does something different:


PowerDMARC MSSP is Different
  • Stop Hackers from sending emails from your domain

  • Stop Cybercriminals from sending fraudulent emails to your partners, employees and customers.

  • Mitigate CEO Fraud, Fake Emails, Business Email Compromise and protect your brand.

  • DMARC combines the power of SPF & DKIM to authenticate email.

  • Get constant feedback about emails that pass or fail the DMARC check.

  • Decide what happens when your email fails DMARC; set your policy to quarantine or reject.

  • Get total protection for your brand by preventing domain spoofing.
