FOSTER CITY, Calif. (June 26, 2019)—Agari, the next-generation Secure Email Cloud that restores trust to the inbox, announced today its Summer ‘19 Release. In this major quarterly code enhancement, all Agari Phishing Defense customers will inherit model updates improving fraud detection and receive greater insight into risks in the APAC region.
Summer ‘19 will introduce improved brand display name impostor detection—a breakthrough machine learning model that improves upon the already strong Agari fraud catch rate. With this latest model update, Agari Phishing Defense can drill-down to detect whether a specific group, service or forwarding notification associated with the brand is being impersonated.
The ACCC’s Scamwatch indicates that the APAC region continues to be fraught with advanced email attacks. Summer ‘19 expands Agari’s regional brand monitoring efforts in APAC. According to public DNS records, Agari is now monitoring more APAC brand domains than any other company.
Agari continues its commitment to invest in machine learning techniques to help detect and stop never-seen-before attack types. Identity impostor model updates delivered in Summer ‘19 improves the Message Trust Score computation against attacks launched from email accounts of established webmail providers while using display name impersonation to impersonate an organization’s executives and employees. By aggressively classifying this attack type as untrusted, organizations can prevent these attacks from ever being seen by the recipient.
All Summer ‘19 enhancements will help fortify customer defenses against costly and damaging business email compromise (BEC), spear phishing, account takeover (ATO) based attacks, and executive impersonation.
Summer ‘19 enhancements will ship to all Agari customers during July, 2019.
