• mail.com implements DANE protocol to enhance e-mail security and prevent man-in-the-middle attacks
Philadelphia, August 1, 2016.
Beginning immediately, mail.com is using the DANE (DNS-based Authentication of Named Entities) protocol to improve e-mail security. This important step prevents hackers from intercepting e-mails and causing “man-in-the-middle attacks,” which online criminals use to secretly relay e-mail communication.
mail.com encrypts all e-mails in transit and generates certificates using SSL/TLS. To secure data traffic, DANE extends SSL/TLS encryption by verifying that these certificates have not been exchanged by online criminals. This enhances secure transport and hinders third parties from eavesdropping on e-mail traffic.
User security is the main priority for mail.com, taking large efforts to protect e-mails with a built-in antivirus tool and spam filter at no cost. The antivirus tool scans incoming and outgoing e-mails are for malware, spyware and Trojans, then automatically removes any affected e-mails if threats are detected. The spam filter isolates potentially harmful content and can be configured through both white and black lists to indicate wanted or unwanted senders.
