Email phishing is still the go-to attack used to target your workforce and supply chain. According to the 2022 FBI/IC3 Report, one type of these attacks alone–BEC–resulted in total losses in excess of $10.2B, up 48% from 2021.
Phishing Merely Scrapes the Threat Landscape
Cybercriminals have learned to bypass traditional security controls and outsmart even highly trained professionals with fake messages disguised as trusted individuals and brands. By doing so, they prompt unsuspecting employees to take action.
From Tricky Deception to Winning Threat Detection
Agari Phishing Defense is an integrated, cloud-based email security solution that uses data science, threat intelligence, and automated threat removal to keep user inboxes free from advanced email threats. With Agari Phishing Defense, enterprises using Microsoft 365, Exchange, or Google Workspace can stop attempts at impersonation and social engineering ploys.
Industry leaders count on Agari to avoid the cost and business disruption that comes from rapidly evolving, identity deception-based attacks, such as impersonation.
The data science behind Agari Phishing Defense is an advanced system of machine learning (ML) models, neural networks, Large Language Models (LLMs), and Natural Language Processing (NLP) tools that work together to accurately detect impersonation and social engineering techniques used in messages.
Agari’s Data Science is supported by a team of data scientists with extensive experience in practical applications of modern ML and AI technologies. These experts partner with Fortra’s storied roster of email threat researchers spanning Agari, Clearswift, PhishLabs, and other Fortra products.
Together, they ensure Agari’s Data Science is trained and optimized to detect unknown threats that bypass traditional email security controls. To learn more about Agari’s Data Science, download our “Inside Agari’s Data Science” whitepaper here.
Agari Phishing Defense comes with integrated feeds from Fortra’s Global Inbox Threat Intelligence. Every day, Agari Phishing Defense ingests hundreds of curated, high-fidelity indicators of compromise (IOCs) from newly observed threats that have bypassed traditional Secure Email Gateways.
Agari Phishing Defense continuously scans email traffic and inboxes for these crowdsourced threat indicators, detecting and removing them automatically.
In addition to advanced data science and global inbox threat intelligence, Agari Phishing Defense benefits from a team of expert analysts that dig deep into threat data across its customer base to proactively hunt for novel attacks.
This team leverages current events, advanced techniques like pivoting, and customer performance insights to operationally detect advanced email threats. Additionally, input from this team is constantly being fed into our global threat intelligence feed and data science models to further enrich Agari Phishing Defense.
Credential phishing attacks trick employees into thinking they need to log into a site or application to access information. Not realizing these look-alike logins are fake, the victims willingly give up their email and password.
This typically leads to email account takeover—one of the hardest email threats to detect because follow-on attacks are launched from legitimate email accounts within your organization or at business partners.
Unlike most email security controls, Agari Phishing Defense inspects all email messages flowing between employees to detect low-volume, highly targeted email attacks from compromised accounts and prevent them from spreading within your organization.
Agari Phishing Defense features a robust logic-based policy configuration and enforcement engine called Continuous Detection and Response (CDR). CDR uses Agari’s Data Science, Global Inbox Threat Intelligence, Continuous Inbox Threat Hunting, as well as customer-specific policies to automatically purge threats across all inboxes.
Customers can use CDR to tailor policies to their email environment, remove/quarantine messages, send alerts, and trigger 3rd-party orchestration tools.
Email environments are notoriously complicated. Most organizations need constant access to email and work to eliminate any single point of failure.
Agari Phishing Defense is a cloud-native application that uses an API integration to quickly deploy alongside all secure email gateways to protect Microsoft 365, Exchange, or G Suite environments (on-premises or hybrid) from phishing attacks.
Agari Phishing Defense does not sit “in-line” with your messaging flow, removing any risk of disrupting your mission-critical business communications.
