HelpSystems Acquires Agari to Grow Data Security Portfolio
Leading Email Phishing Defense Solution Helps Companies Stop Advanced Email Attacks
Despite the growth in cyberattacks through other vectors, email remains the most common channel for costly data breaches and cybercrime. Agari solutions detect, defend against, and respond to email attacks by using massive data sets, data science, and the power of cloud computing.
Agari was a founding member of the industry consortium that developed the Domain Message Authentication Reporting & Conformance (DMARC) email authentication standard. This critical initiative enables organizations to authenticate email from their domains to prevent cybercriminals from impersonating their brand, helping them protect their customers and partners from email attacks.
"Cybercriminals increasingly use email as a prime way to infiltrate businesses and gain access to sensitive data and IP, causing untold damage in terms of cost and reputation,"
"We have found the perfect home in HelpSystems, with its dedication to supporting organizations in their efforts to achieve a holistic approach to email and data security," said Patrick Peterson, Founder and CEO, Agari. "We look forward to continuing to work with our customers to provide the first line of defense against phishing attacks, and we can now introduce them to a host of complementary solutions to address gaps in all aspects of their security postures."
