SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 2, 2017) - Agari, a leading cybersecurity company, today announced that Info Security Products Guide has named Agari Enterprise Protect a winner of a 2017 Global Excellence Award for Best Security Software. Agari Enterprise Protect is the industry's only email security solution that stops sophisticated social engineering-based email attacks including spear phishing, ransomware and Business Email Compromise (BEC).

Email continues to be the primary way cyber criminals infiltrate enterprises. As much as 95% of cyberattacks and data breaches use targeted email attacks as the initial entry point, with attackers evading detection by crafting socially engineered email attacks with no malicious code or URLs. Instead, they impersonate trusted senders such as internal employees, partners or vendors. Agari Enterprise Protect is the only solution that verifies trusted email identities based on insight into 10 billion emails per day to stop these targeted email attacks and protect organizations from email-based data breaches, financial theft, malware delivery, credential theft and critical system compromise.

"Info Security Products Guide's recognition of Agari Enterprise Protect highlights the magnitude of the growing problem of advanced email-based attacks that circumvent existing defenses, such as secure email gateways," said Seth Knox, vice president of Marketing for Agari. "Agari Enterprise Protect is the only solution available today that actively prevents these types of attacks that use identity deception to trick people into giving away confidential information that puts employees, partners and brands at risk."
