If you follow our blog, it's more than likely that you'll have heard us talking about BIMI over the past few weeks. BIMI is a new email standard that enables the use of registered logos on DMARC authenticated emails. The entire email ecosystem is excited about BIMI, as it provides an opportunity to increase the wider adoption of DMARC, while at the same time helping businesses provide a more immersive customer experience and increase brand impressions.
Red Sift and Entrust: streamlining BIMI success
We're very pleased to announce that we've partnered with Entrust, a global leader in identity, payments and data protection. Entrust is one of just two Certification Authorities authorized by Google to provide Verified Mark Certificates (VMCs). This, like full DMARC configuration, is an essential part of the BIMI puzzle, as it works in line with your DMARC policy to provide logo visibility in email. Red Sift and Entrust make the perfect match, working together to help brands improve their email security strategy and create a more consistent email experience for recipients – a win-win for both Information Security and Marketing teams.
Together we've already successfully enabled the sending of more than 100 million VMC-certified emails through Google's BIMI pilot program! And now that Gmail has announced its support for BIMI, we're excited to work together to offer brands a streamlined BIMI certification process, giving businesses a better and more trusted brand experience in Gmail and other supporting email providers.
“Entrust and Red Sift offer VMCs and DMARC service respectively to authenticate marketing email communications with a registered logo and prevent email spoofing using DMARC technology. Our expanded partnership offers brand marketers and InfoSec teams the peace of mind that they can easily secure and maintain the certificates needed in one seamless platform to ensure their email communications meet BIMI standards."Chris Bailey, Vice President of Trust Services at Entrust
