Agari Unveils Continuous Detection and Response Technology, Launches Global Cyber Intelligence Sharing Network

New Industry Innovations Harness Cyber Intelligence Community to Detect
and Stop Latent Cyberattacks in Seconds

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Agari,
the next-generation Secure Email Cloud that restores trust to the inbox,
today announced two complementary innovations that extends the coverage
and effectiveness of the Agari Secure Email Cloud™. The combined
innovations from Agari not only prevent 99.9% of advanced email attacks
in real-time, but also enable “time travel” to prevent previously
unknown attacks from causing a data breach. Agari announced these
innovations on location at RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco.

Continuous Detection and Response is new technology from Agari
that provides an always-on posture to address both known and previously
unknown email threats within the enterprise, enabling a unique
retroactive approach for breach remediation. This new innovation
leverages the Agari SOC Network for the latest threat intelligence feeds
to identify indicators of compromise. Once the characteristics of a
newly discovered threat is confirmed, Agari machine learning models
analyze messages across the entire organization, as if traveling back in
time to the original delivery. Agari then automatically removes all
newly discovered malicious emails to eliminate potential data breaches
caused by these latent threats.

The Agari SOC Network™ is a new cyber intelligence sharing
network comprised of Agari customer SOC teams, the Agari Cyber
Intelligence Division, and best-of-breed machine readable threat
intelligence feeds. As new advanced email threats are detected and
confirmed by Agari customers and threat researchers, the Agari SOC
Network automatically analyzes the indicators of compromise across all
previously delivered email for all customers in seconds and
automatically removes active threats. Participants of the Agari SOC
Network can access the threat intelligence through a mobile application
that sends push notifications to mobile devices and enables analysts to
review and delete malicious messages related to email security incidents
around the clock.

“Most implemented secure email gateways (SEGs) are not designed with
post-delivery detection and remediation techniques, costing incident
responder and email admin time and reducing the feedback loop from end
users,” said Peter Firstbrook, VP Analyst and Neil Wynn, Principal
Analyst, Gartner. “To date, most solution providers have assumed
filtering is catching, and will continue to catch, all phishing
messages. This is a dangerous assumption. History has shown that
effective email filtering techniques result in attackers responding with
new innovative attacks.”

Despite the rise in advanced email threats, existing security controls
only analyze email messages at a single point in time, such as when
emails are delivered, forwarded or a URL is clicked. In many cases,
there may not be enough threat intelligence at that time for security
systems to make a determination whether the message is malicious,
allowing attacks to slip through the cracks. When new malicious URLs,
attachments or social engineering techniques are discovered, these
malicious emails remain undetected and continue to pose a threat to the
organization as a potential data breach.

“For decades, cyber criminals have successfully thwarted legacy defenses
and year after year, email remains the primary attack vector,” said
Patrick Peterson, Founder and CEO, Agari. “Agari’s community of elite
cybersecurity SOC teams paired with an automated system marries human
insight and machine learning to transform intelligence into
action—removing latent threats after the fact is a unique approach and a
big step forward for the industry.”

Both the Continuous Detection and Response technology and Agari SOC
Network are part of the Agari
Secure Email Cloud
, a next-generation email security solution that
detects, defends against and deters phishing and identity deception
attacks.
