The partnership entails mutual data stream exchanges to boost the speed and accuracy of threat intelligence on email-based attacks, leading to higher detection and remediation rates. The agreement protects customers of both Agari and Trend Micro against the steady stream of cyberattacks that threaten companies’ brand value and consumers’ personal information.
In joining forces, Agari and Trend Micro underscore the importance of the Agari Trust Network, an ecosystem of leading infrastructure and security solution providers to deliver best-in-class analytics and security solutions.

“Agari’s threat intelligence for email is both unique and extensive. With Agari seeing information related to more than 10 billion email messages daily, even the darker areas of the Internet receive illumination,” said Patrick Peterson, CEO and founder of Agari. “Trend Micro has consistently been a leader in their depth of knowledge related to email abuse. The work Agari and Trend Micro can do together will set up the clients and brands we work with for success against cybercriminals.”
