Agari, the leading provider of real-time data-driven security solutions, today announced the availability of Real-Time Threat Intelligence (RTTI), a solution for global brands and security partners that detects malicious IP addresses and URLs used within email attacks in real time. The announcement was made in conjunction with the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) Annual Summit, responding to the need and importance of email intelligence in the financial services sector.
Powered by a global detection network collecting intelligence from over 2.5 billion global mailboxes, Agari’s RTTI solution provides threat teams and enterprise security vendors with unprecedented visibility and actionable intelligence. Already deployed at dozens of Global 2000 companies, RTTI allows companies to detect attacks in real time before they scale, collect information on malware and APTs that other techniques miss, and learn where brand and domain abuse originates. RTTI leverages the same threat intelligence that powered the Citadel botnet takedown by Microsoft and FBI, and that won JPMorgan Chase’s Hall of Innovation award. The solution enables enterprises and takedown vendors (companies that take confirmed malicious links/URLs offline) to dramatically speed response and remediation times, catching threats that other detection methods miss.
“Email security is more critical now than ever before, and brands can’t afford to risk the damage caused by an email attack,” said Patrick Peterson, CEO of Agari. “RTTI’s speed of detecting malicious IP addresses and URLs is a critical prerequisite to stopping attacks, preventing widespread damage to both companies and their customers.” Gartner indicates in their recent report, Context-Aware Security and Intelligence-Sharing Concepts Merge to Create Intelligence-Aware Security Controls, “Recent advanced attacks continue to demonstrate weakness in preventive controls, which is forcing the evolution of security technology to use non-signature-based methods, or rely more on intelligence and analytics to find attacks."1
RTTI is built upon Agari’s award-winning cloud-based SaaS data platform, which helps companies detect, take action, and prevent the advanced email cyberthreats that are targeting end users today. Powered by a global detection network that aggregates unique email data from Global ISPs, Local ISPs, and the largest email senders on the planet, Agari’s RTTI solution provides threat teams and enterprise security vendors with unprecedented visibility and actionable intelligence.
Key features of Agari RTTI include:
- Real-Time Threat Feeds: detect phishing URLs, potential malware and APTs in real-time and before attacks scale. Route the feed to your threat intelligence and security appliance vendors to augment their solutions and for faster mitigation of threats.
- Threat Alerts: gain intelligence on unique data and insights, including the top five sources of potential phishing attacks.
- Attack reports: receive daily reports summarizing suspicious email activity prevented, helping brands keep a pulse on where domain abuse is coming from.
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.

In the next five to ten years, millions, if not billions of things will become smarter. This smartness goes beyond connected things in our homes like the fridge, thermostat and fancy lighting, and into heavily regulated industries including aerospace, pharmaceutical/medical devices and energy. “Smartness” will embed itself within individual products that are part of our daily lives. We will engage with smart products - learning from them, informing them, and communicating with them. Smart produc...
