Email fraud is one of the top threats to businesses today, costing organizations millions. This is due to direct losses from financial fraud and business disruptions resulting in a loss of productivity, consumer trust, and employee trust. Defending against email attacks is more difficult now that cybercriminals are using identity deception by impersonating senior employees or other trusted individuals and brands as a part of phishing campaigns. These types of threats can easily bypass existing security infrastructures resulting in cyber criminals gaining access to legitimate email accounts.
Fortra™’s Agari uses an identity-centric approach that uniquely learns sender-receiver behavior to model trusted communications, which enables it to quickly detect attacks. This is done through a graph database of relationships and behavioral patterns between individuals, brands, businesses, services, and domains. Pre-configured policies immediately remove or redirect malicious messages for further incident investigation. Agari looks at emails coming in as well as emails shared internally to stop them from spreading across the organization. As a result, Agari stops threats that often evade signature and reputation-based detection like spear phishing or Business Email Compromise (BEC).
Organizations receive tens of thousands of phishing incident reports each year. Research indicates that 60% of employee-reported phishing emails are false positives, taking security teams hours to triage and remediate. By automating the investigative analysis, Agari eliminates false positives and examines all inboxes for the latest indicators of compromise elevating the most suspicious incidents to the top of the list. Security operations center (SOC) analysts can then evaluate and prioritize incidents empowering them to remove all malicious emails quickly and decisively from affected inboxes with the click of a button. Reducing incident response time from days or hours to a few minutes, saving organizations time and money.
- As phishing attacks are ever-evolving, Fortra™’s Agari continuously scans employee inboxes for the latest indicators of compromise drawn from research conducted by the Agari Cyber Intelligence Division (ACID). The ACID BEC feed is the industry’s first and only globally sourced, expert-curated intelligence on emergent BEC attacks.
- Agari is a cloud-based application that uses API integrations to quickly deploy alongside existing email security infrastructures like secure email gateways, Microsoft 365, Google Workspace, and exchange servers.
- The Agari Identity Graph is the AI powering Agari’s suite of advanced email solutions, analyzing over seven billion (based on 2021 stats) emails per day, mapping complex relationships of global email identity. Delivering dynamic models of authenticated and trusted behavior and stopping identity deception attacks.
