Leading Dot Bank Domain Name Registrar EnCirca Partners with Return Path

Posted by Robert Holmes 

EnCirca, the leading .bank domain name registrar, is partnering with Return Path to help community banks achieve a more secure online experience for banking customers.

.Bank is extremely attractive to the heavily phished financial sector due to the tight restrictions around who can apply, what types of domains can be registered, and the security measures mandated by the registry—including implementing DMARC.

As a founding member of DMARC, some of the world’s leading banks already rely on Return Path to combat email fraud targeting their customers. EnCirca will work with Return Path to provide that same level of protection to nearly half of all .Bank registrants.

“With Return Path’s help, we have developed a cost-effective email authentication service appropriate for community banks to help make the promise of .BANK a reality.” ~ Tom Barrett, President of EnCirca

This partnership means EnCirca can provide a one-stop shop for banks, helping them comply with the registry’s security requirements as quickly as possible, and leverage Return Path’s Email Fraud Protection solution to secure the email channel by preventing the delivery of spoofed email.
