PowerDMARC, a Delaware-based DMARC and email security solutions provider, has announced its partnership with Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) in May 2020. CSA is a not-for-profit organization with a mission to promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within Cloud Computing and to provide education on the uses of Cloud Computing to help secure all other forms of computing.

“This is the first time we’re partnering with a cloud security organization like CSA,” said Faisal Al Farsi, Co-Founder of PowerDMARC, when asked about the announcement. “We’ve always made sure we work with the best in any industry. Having been in cloud security for over 11 years, no one fits the bill better than CSA. We’re looking forward to working together for many, many years to come.”

Since 2009, CSA has worked with industry practitioners, governments and associations, pioneering research, education, certification, events and products in cloud security. They operate STAR and CSSK, some of the most popular cloud security certifications, as well as a Global Consulting Program which allows cloud users to work directly with a network of trusted security professionals. 

PowerDMARC has been refining its anti-spoofing platform with innovative new features like AI-based threat detection and reporting. Through this partnership, they seek to bolster their email security and anti-spoofing solutions with the cloud security resources of CSA. By collaborating with them to bring the latest in cloud computing security to PowerDMARC’s web-based software platform, CSA looks to bring awareness about email security and domain spoofing to the cloud community. PowerDMARC will also provide them with critical data points from their platform that will facilitate new research into the emerging technology of cloud-based email security.

“There’s incredible potential in the future of cloud email security solutions,” said Jim Reavis, co-founder CEO, CSA. “By partnering with PowerDMARC, we will have the chance to investigate how cloud solutions can be leveraged to combat email spoofing, enabling us to actively contribute to building a safer cyberspace.”
