In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
-Valimail is the world's only FedRAMP-authorized provider of DMARC email authentication, protecting government domains from fraudulent email.
-Valimail is the only provider of email authentication automation that gets 100% of its customer companies to enforcement — the point at which fraudulent emails are completely blocked — and backs this promise up with a contractual guarantee.
-Valimail is the only email authentication solution that does not utilize personally identifiable information (PII) such as the contents of email messages, facilitating compliance with GDPR, HIPAA, and other stringent privacy-protecting laws.
In less than 300 words, summarize the achievements of the company in the nominated category
Valimail has developed the world’s first cloud service that fully automates email authentication, allowing organizations to prevent phishing attacks, protect their brands, and regulate how their domains are used for email.
Both of Valimail’s products, Defend and Enforce, are built on the Valimail’s Identity Driven Email Anti-impersonation (IDEA) platform, which runs on a robust, distributed AWS infrastructure, with multiple points of presence in the U.S., EMEA, and Asia. It guarantees four and a half nines (99.995%) of availability, and is backed by Privacy Shield certification and SOC-2 Level 2 compliance.
Unlike its competitors, Valimail is the only email anti-impersonation provider to offer complete automation, enabling customers to configure email authentication and maintain and ensure continuous authentication in the face of rapidly changing IT and email environments. Valimail has a higher rate of getting email authentication to a policy of enforcement — the point at which fake emails are blocked — than any vendor, and guarantees enforcement in customer contracts.
Before Valimail, one financial industry customer was subject to so much email impersonation that most mail receivers had started blocking even legitimate emails from the company, leading to a complete shutdown of the company’s ability to communicate with its customers and partners via email. After implementation of Valimail’s solution, email deliverability rates for that customer increased from near zero to over 90 percent. In addition, another enterprise tech customer noted that they no longer have to worry about managing Sender Policy framework (SPF) , DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM), and Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance (DMARC) standards because Valimail is able to automate implementation and maintenance with an all-encompassing solution. Furthermore, all five of Valimail’s government agency customers achieved compliance with BOD 18-01, with a median time to enforcement of three weeks.
