Verified Mark Certificates (VMCs) allow you to render your logo next to the “sender” field in email clients so that users see your mark—and that your organization has been authenticated—before they even open your message. It's the email equivalent of a »verified account« on social media, with added validation and security requirements to help protect your customers and your brand against phishing and spoofing attacks.
Your email recipients will instantly associate more trust with your email communications. Visibility and engagement of your emails will increase. You will make it harder for bad actors to target your customers with identity-focused attacks like spoofing and phishing.
