Security Professional Pain Points – and How to Solve Them

Ask any security professional what the number one pain point is within their organization, and chances are they’ll say ‘user behavior’…with ‘malware’ coming in as a very close second. And while these issues are very different on the surface, they do have one thing in common: both are often the cause of high-profile data breaches, largely in part to the increased use of spear phishing email exploits by cybercriminals.

According to research, 90% of cyber-attacks and data breaches involve spear phishing – and 100% of these attacks involve identity deception, such as emails that impersonate a co-worker or trusted 3rd party contact. Unfortunately, most email security tools available today are unable to stop – or even detect – these attacks, as they don’t typically contain a malicious attachment or link.

Agari Enterprise Protect takes a differentiated approach to stopping spear phishing, identifying the true sender of emails and creating positive (i.e., good) trust models of sending behavior into organizations. This enables us to isolate the bad threat actors – in other words, isolate the spear phishing attacks and protect organizations from email-based data breaches (as well as financial theft, malware, credential theft and critical system compromise!).

But don’t take our word for it… 451 Research recently noted that the combination of Agari’s behavioral analytics and anomaly recognition, enables Agari Enterprise Protect to enrich an organization’s context of defense against malicious messages – which is often the first line of defense against a targeted attack.
