Why Do You Need DMARC for Office365?

When it comes to securing your organization’s email systems, it’s not enough to rely on Office 365’s in-built security features, because they may only protect you from inbound phishing attempts to a certain extent. That means you still need to deal with malicious sources sending phishing email from your organization’s own domain. Office 365 does not provide you with any visibility or information on your SPF/DKIM/DMARC configuration errors as well.

The good news is, that’s what we’re here for! As your DMARC service provider, PowerDMARC can seamlessly integrate with Office 365, providing you maximum visibility and securing your domain. Our platform allows you to get information on spoofing attempts, help you enforce DMARC policy and protect your brand, making DMARC for office 365 accessible to everyone out there!

Why Do You Need PowerDMARC’s DMARC Office365 Setup?

  • Publishing a DMARC Office365 DNS record with a policy of none without RUA/RUF tags is the equivalent of not publishing a DMARC record at all. The none policy does not enforce any action on spoofed emails that are failing DMARC and without the RUA/RUF tags, you lack the visibility needed to find out who is sending emails on your behalf (legitimate and spoofing entities)

  • Lack of visibility on Office365 cyberattacks on your domain exposes your organization to severe risks and does not allow you to take timely actions on such attacks, which is why DMARC for office 365 is needed.

  • To gain visibility and determine who is attempting to spoof your domain, PowerDMARC is needed, as we process, analyze, and elegantly display your DMARC reports. Office365 does not provide visibility on DMARC reports neither TLS-RPT. This makes DMARC for office 365 a must-have for businesses.

  • In addition to identifying spoofing attempts on your domain, PowerDMARC provides visibility on misconfigurations for your DMARC Office365 enabled emails, enabling you to ensure that all your senders are DMARC compliant.

  • Without the information provided by PowerDMARC, it is practically impossible to move your policy from monitoring only (p=none) to an enforcement policy that will protect your domain against spoofing (p=reject). Changing your policy to p=reject without any visibility will prevent your legitimate emails from being delivered to your recipients, which will negatively impact your deliverability. Office365 lacks visibility and reporting on DMARC.

You can follow our step-by-step guide on how to make your Office 365 solution DMARC-compliant.

Frequently Asked Questions on DMARC Office365

Yes PowerDMARC integrates with office 365 seamlessly

There is no need to do integration with the administrative portal; you just need to publish DMARC record generated by PowerDMARC to the FAR Cloud domain.

Microsoft APT protects you against inbound phishing attacks whereas PowerDMARC protects your domain from being spoofed/impersonated and fake mails being sent on your behalf to anyone. They both have different roles.

Microsoft does not provide the visibility, publishing a DMARC record directly with an enforcement policy can break all email communication. DMARC sends two types of reports Aggregate and Forensic which PowerDMARC represents in a detailed way so you can visualize if any legitimate source is rejected by DMARC policy or malicious source needs to be rejected.

Ensuring no one can send emails from your own domains and gain visibility on any malicious senders using your domain for sending scams on your behalf.
