Agari, a leading vendor of cybersecurity solutions to block phishing and social engineering attacks, has announced a new partnership with the Global Cyber Alliance.
The Global Cyber Alliance is a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting cybercrime and helps organizations to address cybersecurity risks and defend against cyberattacks.
The Global Cyber Alliance and its partners raise awareness of the need for businesses to adopt DMARC, which is seen as critical for the prevention of phishing and business email compromise attacks. The Global Cyber Alliance also helps organizations implement DMARC by building and distributing toolkits that make DMARC adoption easier.
Agari has been heavily involved in DMARC since the firm was formed, being one of the founding members of the email authentication standard. Agari partnered with Google, PayPal and Yahoo on the pilot project that led to the creation of the DMARC open standard. Today, over 90% of all DMARC-verified emails are processed by Agari’s Email Trust Platform™ – more than 10 billion email messages are verified each day, protecting more than 3 billion inboxes around the globe.
Philip Reitinger, president and CEO of the Global Cyber Alliance said, “I am happy to welcome Agari to GCA as a partner. As a leader in email protection they bring great technical expertise and understanding to our efforts to combat cyber threats, particularly as we are currently focused on the risk of phishing.”
Agari and the Global Cyber Alliance share a common goal – to make it as difficult as possible for cybercriminals to abuse email by promoting use of the DMARC standard. Agari has a long history of working with law enforcement to identify and track down phishers. Seth Knox, VP of Marketing at Agari, said the firm is “excited to work with GCA and its growing network of partners in our mutual fight against cybercrime.”
Agari is already working with six of the biggest banks and five of the top social media networks to prevent brand abuse and phishing attacks on customers. The company has been recognized by Gartner as a ‘Cool Vendor’ and has collected awards for its anti-phishing platform from Info Security Product Guide, The Online Trust Alliance and Golden Bridge. Its Email Trust Platform™ has been adopted by many of the world’s best-known brands, including Facebook, JPMorgan Chase, LinkedIn, PayPal and Netflix to protect customers from phishing attacks using company branding and domains.
The new partnership between Agari and GTA will help to raise awareness of the need to adopt DMARC, improve email security and reduce the burden of DMARC implementation for organizations.
