A new email reporting service from Message Bus enables companies to keep better tabs on how corporate email is being abused for illicit or unauthorized purposes.
Message Bus' Discover is a free reporting service designed to give more visibility into email senders so companies can see if their email systems are being abused or misused. Additionally, Message Bus also launched Global Delivery Network, a software service aimed at enterprises, email service providers and application developers that need to send millions to billions of emails, mobile and social messages per month.
Combined, Message Bus hopes to help businesses get a handle on dealing with unauthorized email senders. While Discover provides the visibility into who is sending email on behalf of the company, the Global Delivery Network was designed to lock out unauthorized email senders even as it lets legitimate senders send email across multiple channels.
"Email sending has turned into the wild west as IT has lost control over who is sending email on behalf of the organization's domain. If you are an organization with any type of brand cachet, it is likely fraudulent senders are attempting to hijack your brand for sending email containing phishing or malware attacks," said Jeremy LaTrasse (pictured), CEO and co-founder of Message Bus, in a prepared statement.
Discover collects data from domain-based message authentication, reporting and conformance (DMARC)-compliant ISPs to provide reports and analytics that identifies which IP addresses are being used for phishing and other activity in a company's name. Phishing can do significant damage to a brand, but Discover was designed to help solve the problem.
According to Message Bus, Discover helped to save one ecommerce company more than $1 million by revealing unauthorized senders.
