Fraudsters often pose as government agencies using spear phishing to impersonate a specific person at a government body. Threats have become increasingly sophisticated.
This is just one reason the US Department of Homeland Security has issued BOD-18-01, requiring Federal agencies to implement DMARC as a mechanism to thwart government impersonation.
Many agencies have met the deadline. Others continue to struggle with email systems that are notoriously complicated making it difficult to identify all authorized and un-authorized senders
Agari stays one step ahead of fraudsters because it understands the identity and trust relationships behind the email message. Our solutions know what good emails and sender behavior looks like, so we can stop the bad.
Government agencies use Agari to fully-automate DMARC implementation. This accelerates deployment, reduces time to enforcement and helps them stay there.
Agari also protects staff from disruptive advanced email attacks and supports the Security Operations Center with workflow automation for incident response.
Agari has created the first 2020 Presidential Campaign Email Threat Index to rank candidates on their email authentication and advanced email security protocols. See where your favorite candidate ranks.
