Return Path Launches Industry’s Largest ISP Anti-Phishing Program with AOL, Libero, Microsoft, Synacor, UOL and Yahoo!
New York, NY and Berlin, Germany -M3AAWG 25th General Meeting – June 5, 2012 – Return Path, the world’s leading email certification and reputation monitoring company, today launched the world’s largest ISP Anti-Phishing Program which includes AOL, Libero, Microsoft, Synacor, UOL and Yahoo!. Return Path’s ISP Anti-Phishing Program enables ISPs around the world to adopt the new DMARC email authentication standard more quickly, protect their customers against phishing attacks, protect their own brand against spear phishing and improve overall trust in email as a communication channel. Return Path’s ISP Anti-Phishing Program, free of charge to ISPs, was announced at the M3AAWG 25th General Meeting held June 5-7, 2012 in Berlin, Germany.
“Return Path’s ISP Anti-Phishing Program underscores our long standing, deep relationships with the world’s leading ISPs and is squarely aimed at eliminating consumer targeted phishing attacks,” said Matt Blumberg, CEO at Return Path. “There isn’t a day that goes by in which we don’t hear or read about a leading brand getting hijacked, and each time it happens it erodes trust in the email channel. By working together, Return Path and its ISP partners can effectively combat domain phishing and help ensure a trusted, secure email ecosystem.”
“Synacor enables our ISP customers to offer their end-consumers an email environment everyone can trust,” said Eric Toczek, Director of Email, Synacor, Inc. “The adoption and use of DMARC plays a key role in that ability, providing a mechanism that can be used to protect mailboxes from many domain phishing attacks. Syancor is excited be part of the Return Path ISP Program to help drive adoption of DMARC and provide consumers a safer and more secure email environment.”
