Fortra's Agari Active Defense

Gain actionable intelligence, understand threats, and reduce risk from Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks.

Phishing and BEC attacks represent a significant, ongoing threat to business.

It’s critical to understand the strategies and tactics targeting your organization and defend against the ever-present risks, along with the potential financial liabilities that comes with them.

Phishing is a Game of Cat and Mouse

Despite training and all other attempts to stop them, phishing and BEC attacks continue to be successful for a reason: the business environment surrounding us all is constantly changing. Cybercriminals know just about any “ordinary day” presents opportunities to trick employees with a new twist that dovetails neatly into the routine.

Cybercriminals utilize digital reconnaissance and evolving social engineering techniques to stay one step ahead of your defenses to launch sophisticated attacks targeting your employees. Building internal expertise to engage with these email threat actors is expensive, time-consuming, and challenging to operationalize.
