Agari PRO is the only email channel protection solution that provides global brands with email ecosystem discovery, cyberthreat detection and prevention, threat and infrastructure monitoring and alerting, and offers actionable remediation workflow for threat prevention. Built upon its real-time detection network, Agari PRO customers gain instant and unprecedented visibility into all email-sending domains that are owned, authorized third party, or malicious. Agari’s real-time detection network is enabled by DMARC, an email security standard that has seen rapid adoption, with support from 85% of the inboxes in the US and 60% of the inboxes worldwide. DMARC allows brands to be in control of their email channel and definitively communicate to receivers which email is from them and which email is not.
Key features of Agari PRO include:
- Attack Detection & Visualization: Real-time detection and intelligence on cyberthreats including suspicious URL’s and IP addresses, enabling security teams to take immediate action
- Proactive Remediation Workflow: Agari’s guided workflow offers clear steps on how to fix security issues, with tools and workflows for deploying and tracking email authentication across a client’s infrastructure
- Threat Prevention: With full deployment, email cyberthreats are prevented, and data is shared on attempted and thwarted attacks by an ISP to provide complete visibility
“At Agari, we have seen exceptional growth and adoption of our real-time, data-driven security solutions by some of the world’s most prominent companies that come to us looking to stop email threats that compromise their brand and put consumers at risk,” said Patrick Peterson, CEO and founder of Agari. “With recent headlines showcasing that email is clearly the cybercriminal’s favorite attack vector, our solution couldn’t be more relevant. By converting the world’s email inboxes into a real-time detection network, we see threats instantly and share the data we’re analyzing – 4.5 billion messages per day – to enable immediate action and threat prevention. With Agari PRO, we’re pleased to be able to provide greater data accessibility and an even more robust feature set with companies that are serious about stopping cyberthreats, for good.”
