DigiCert Verified Mark Certificate (VMC) Order

Verified Mark certificates are issued by the DigiCert certification authority. They are used to display the symbol of the sender on an email message and to better identify them. Thanks to this technology, the email’s recipient will see your company logo even before they open the message itself. Thanks to VMC, we can increase the efficiency of our communication with customers and consistently protect them against phishing.

Recommended certificate use

The DigiCert Verified Mark Certificate is suitable for companies that send email communications to their customers. It is issued for domains used for sending emails.

Recipients will see the sender's logo next to the message and can trust that the message’s origin is genuine. The VMC certificate is therefore suitable not only for marketing but also to protect customers against fraudulent and forged emails.

We recommend deploying VMC certificates especially to banks and financial institutions, but also to companies whose customers have become or may become the target of a phishing attack. The VMC certificate should be considered by every company that is serious about communicating with clients.

Displaying logo in email client

Verified Mark certificates (VMC) allow companies to display their logo (brand) next to the "sender" field in email clients – the recipient sees it even before opening the message. To do this, VMCs use a technology known as Brand Indicators for Message Identification (BIMI).

The VMC certificate contains the sender's logo, which is protected by a trademark. Using a VMC certificate will bring you better message readability, but it is also an effective tool against phishing.

The VMC shows the sender's logo to the email recipient.

FAQ - frequently asked questions

In order to display the logo from the VMC certificate on the sender's message, the service provider must support BIMI. You can always find the current list of providers supporting BIMI in this overview.

VMC (BIMI) support is gradually expanding and the VMC certificates are supported by the following service providers:
  • Apple (from autumn 2022)

To obtain a VMC certificate and use a specific logo in email services, you need to have a trademark for this graphic element. Furthermore, you must have DMARC enabled on the domain that sends the emails with the rule "p=quarantine" or "p=reject".
