Increase user trust with DigiCert VMC

DigiCert offers an innovative new certificate to create an authenticated, engaging, and visually compelling email experience. This product is called a Verified Mark Certificate (VMC). It allows an organization to display their trademarked logo next to the “sender” field in the mobile view of major email clients, visible to recipients even before they open the message. The certificate requires DMARC enforcement, which also helps protect both the organization and its customers from phishing and spoofing attacks. The value of this groundbreaking initiative is clear and immediate, and there is already strong demand and a waitlist.

Avoid phishing attacks

Avoid phishing attacks

Because of DMARC and the visible logo identifying legitimate emails, it becomes much harder for bad actors to target your customers with identity-focused attacks like spoofing and phishing.

DMARC benefits

DMARC gives you much more visibility and control over the messages sent and received by your domain, and a VMC gives the rest of your organization another compelling reason to enforce DMARC.

Better detection

DMARC enforcement makes it easier to identify the types and frequency of attacks against an organization.



The combination of DMARC and VMC helps to ensure legitimate emails are delivered reliably.
