Email and Communications


Email and communications are critical components of modern business operations, requiring robust management and security measures to ensure effectiveness and protect against threats. As a managed services provider based in Honolulu, we offer comprehensive email and communications setup services that encompass everything from basic configuration to advanced security protocols such as SPF, DKIM, and DMARC. We also provide solutions for spam and phishing filtering, and utilize Microsoft 365 communication software to enhance collaboration and productivity.

Email Security Setup: SPF, DKIM, and DMARC Our services include the setup and management of essential email security protocols to safeguard your communications from fraud and abuse:

  • SPF (Sender Policy Framework): This protocol helps to validate outgoing emails by verifying sender IP addresses against a list authorized by the domain owner, reducing the likelihood of spoofing and improving email deliverability.
  • DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail): DKIM adds a digital signature to each outgoing email, which verifies that the email content has not been altered in transit, thereby ensuring the authenticity of the sender.
  • DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance): DMARC uses SPF and DKIM to provide additional protection, allowing domain owners to define how email receivers should handle emails that don’t pass SPF or DKIM checks. It also reports on actions taken on emails failing these checks, providing insight into email security performance.

Spam and Phishing Filtering To further enhance email security, we implement advanced spam and phishing filtering technologies. These systems are designed to detect and block malicious emails before they reach user inboxes, significantly reducing the risk of security breaches initiated via email. Our filtering solutions are continually updated to respond to evolving threats, ensuring robust protection against both known and emerging types of email-based attacks.
