Sender Policy Framework (SPF) and DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) are two widely used email authentication protocols that help prevent email spoofing and ensure the authenticity of email messages.
SPF allows domain owners to specify which mail servers are authorized to send emails on behalf of their domains, while DKIM uses digital signatures to verify that the email content has not been tampered with during transit.
Email security and authentication are vital for safeguarding organizations against cyber threats. DMARC, SPF and DKIM protocols, when implemented correctly, play a significant role in preventing email spoofing, phishing attacks, and other email-related vulnerabilities. By leveraging Fortinet's expertise and implementing SPF and DKIM, organizations can significantly reduce the risk of falling victim to email-based attacks, ensuring a safer and more trustworthy email environment.
