Foster City, CA – December 12, 2018 – Agari, the next-generation Secure Email Cloud that restores trust to the inbox, today announced its Winter ’19 Release, the latest quarterly product update for the Agari Secure Email Cloud™.  Winter ‘19 introduces Agari Incident Response™, the only purpose-built phishing incident response solution for post-delivery remediation in Microsoft Office 365 environments, and also delivers a series of product effectiveness and reporting enhancements to the Agari Secure Email Cloud.

Agari Incident Response contains Microsoft Office 365 breaches in minutes instead of months and provides a one-touch phishing incident response solution that streamlines response times and automatically removes malicious emails from inboxes.  This newest major capability in the Agari Secure Email Cloud was recently announced at Black Hat Europe.

“Digital transformation has ushered in the era of cloud email migration, introducing new security challenges to the enterprise. While many legacy secure email gateway features have been commoditized, a new breed of identity deception-based attacks have become more widespread and devastating than ever,” said AJ Shipley, Vice President of Product Management, Agari. “Agari’s next-generation secure email cloud is purpose-built for the current breed of attacks, and Winter ’19 demonstrates our ongoing commitment to deliver innovative cloud-first defenses against these forms of attack.”

In addition to Agari Incident Response, Winter ’19 includes additional enhancements to detect, defend against, and deter phishing and identity deception attacks:

  • Advanced Analytics: An intuitive new CISO dashboard delivers insights to  security leaders that measure impact and to demonstrate the value of protecting employees. Administrators can view threat and enforcement trends within their organizations.
  • Enhanced Reporting by Attack Type: Improved categorization for brand-related display name deception attacks and domain spoofing attacks provides deeper insight into threats facing businesses.
  • Accelerated Email Authentication Value: DMARC 3rd-party sender data has been expanded by 50 percent, accelerating time-to-value for email authentication results and further improving Agari’s industry-leading enforcement rates.

“As the adoption of DMARC email authentication continues to grow, there is a cumulative effect of improving the security of the entire email ecosystem,” said Philip Reitinger, President & CEO of the Global Cyber Alliance, a leading non-profit partnership addressing cyber risk. “Organizations should be urged to adopt DMARC to protect their outgoing mail.”

All Agari Winter ‘19 Release updates will be generally available to Agari customers in early January, 2019.
