Why Agari + Fortra
Fortra (formerly HelpSystems) announced today the acquisition of Agari, a recognized leader in enterprise solutions protecting against advanced email threats. Agari has seen notable growth with its Software as a Service (SaaS) offering, which sets the standard for protecting organizations against phishing, business email compromise, and email threats. In light of today’s complex security environment and increased cybercrime, this is a key capability for organizations in all industries, which is why Fortra continues to focus on enhancing its data security suite via adjacent acquisitions.
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.
Leading Advanced Email Threat Protection
Agari is the Trusted Email Identity Company™, protecting brands and people from devastating phishing and socially-engineered attacks. Using applied data science and a diverse set of signals, Agari protects the workforce from inbound business email compromise, supply chain fraud, spear phishing, and account takeover-based attacks, reducing business risk and restoring trust to the inbox. Agari also prevents spoofing of outbound email from the enterprise to customers, increasing deliverability and preserving brand integrity.
