Bahrain tech startup takes on global contenders

MANAMA, June 28, 2020

DMARC360, a Bahrain-based email security startup, has just announced that its online platform is now hosted in multiple locations across the globe to cater to global data regulations.

Now any organization worldwide can sign up for DMARC360’s freemium or paid services at their nearest point of presence through their website.

DMARC360 started this idea of local hosting to enhance security and availability by containerizing the platform and hosting it in multiple locations to satisfy individual country’s data protection laws that require their critical data infrastructure to be hosted in-country only. By having its platform hosted within specific countries, it can continue to operate whilst ensuring that and organization’s data stays within its perimeter.

Last year alone, it had locally hosted their platform in Saudi Arabia and the UAE. This year, it has been able to host their platform across 5 continents which include countries like Pakistan, the UK, the US, Malaysia, Australia, and South Africa.

According to its recent “Global Banks Adoption Rate: Banking Sector Edition” report, only less than half of the world’s retail banks have implemented DMARC on their domains which leaves the majority of banks vulnerable.

Of the few banks that have a DMARC record present on their domains, about less than 30% are at an effectively mature policy state (Reject Mode) to eliminate spoofed emails and its associated cyber attacks. For such a simple fix, the numbers are staggeringly low, and yet many are unaware of the risks that are associated with not having a DMARC record with a mature policy in place, a company statement said.

“We are truly thrilled to be expanding at such a steady pace. Our goal is to make our platform available to use for anyone across the globe. We want to ensure that spoofing and its associated attacks are not an option for cybercriminals,” said Abdullah Mirza, Director of Growth & Strategy, DMARC360.

DMARC360’s growth strategy makes it one of the few middle-eastern technology startups with global competitors in its field, which include big companies like Agari, Return Path, DMARCIAN, OnDMARC, and DMARC Analyzer, the statement said.

Currently, the Middle East stands as a rising fintech & startup hub with innovative companies such as DMARC360’s cybersecurity and Digital Risk Protection (DRP) focused sister company CTM360, which has also gained global exposure, competition, notable awards and recognition amongst key players throughout the years, according to the statement. – TradeArabia News Service
