PowerDMARC, an email authentication solutions provider headquartered in Delaware,  USA, is partnering with Dubai-based information security distribution company, Disti360. In June 2020, Disti360 the Hub of Virtual Distribution signed on to become a value-added distributor of PowerDMARC’s suite of email security and DMARC services. Primarily targeting businesses and organizations, their new partnership is set to bring the latest in email authentication technology to the mainstream.

“We’re extremely happy to be teaming up with Disti360,” said PowerDMARC Co-Founder & CEO Faisal Al Farsi. “The Middle East has relatively low DMARC adoption rates, leaving their email exposed to spoofing and impersonation attacks. It’s our job to build awareness among organizations and protect their brands’ reputation. With Disti360’s help, we can establish ourselves as the leading provider of DMARC solutions across several countries in the region.”

Disti360, hub of virtual distribution headquartered in Dubai, will be PowerDMARC’s first major distributor in the Middle East. With many new businesses and organizations forming all around the region, there’s a growing need for a proper solution that protects against malicious phishing scams.

Through distribution and hands-on support for PowerDMARC services, they plan on building strong channels in KSA, UAE, Kuwait, Bahrain, Jordan and Egypt. Crucially, they will be responsible for increasing the adoption of DMARC and robust email security practices across the Middle East.

“We’re excited to be among the first ones to offer fully-featured email security services to businesses in our region,” said Abdullah Abu-Hejleh, Founder & CEO of Disti360. “It’s a rare opportunity for us and our partners. Together with PowerDMARC, we can forge strong connections with organizations all across the Middle East, securing domains and making email and cyber safer for everyone.”

 

 

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.”
