Agari has been honored at this year’s SC Media Awards and has collected a prestigious Professional Award for its email security solution – the Agari Email Trust Platform.
The SC Media Awards are the premier cybersecurity awards for the cybersecurity industry. Each year, hundreds of products are assessed by a panel of independent judges drawn from the cybersecurity industry. The nominated solutions are whittled down to five finalists in each category.
This year’s finalists in the Best Email Security Solution category were the Agari Email Trust Platform, Mimecast Advanced Security, Proofpoint Email Protection, Zix for ZixProtect and FireEye Email Security. Agari was named category winner at the gala awards ceremony in San Francisco on April 17, 2018.
The judges selected the Agari Email Trust Platform as providing the best protection against a wide range of email threats including email spoofing, phishing, BEC attacks, and spear phishing.
The Agari Email Trust Platform is an AI-based security solution that incorporates global email telemetry data to create a model of authentic email communications against which all emails are assessed. When a message arrives that deviates from the trusted model it is flagged as potentially malicious and quarantined, pending further investigation.
In addition to protecting against inbound email threats, the solution also assesses outbound messages that abuse a company’s brand to prevent phishing messages from being delivered to customers and business contacts.
To be named as a finalist is an honor in itself, although being named category winner demonstrates the quality and effectiveness of a product, especially this year with such strong competition. “Agari is honored to be recognized by SC Magazine as the Best Email Security Solution, especially given the strength of the finalists in this year’s field,” said Ravi Khatod, CEO, Agari.
