SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Agari, the leading provider of real-time, data-driven security solutions that detect and prevent advanced email cyberattacks, today announced the launch of the Agari Trust Network, a new partner program designed to put an end to cybercrime. The Agari Trust Network is an ecosystem of leading infrastructure and security solution providers worldwide that are partnering to provide best-in-class analytics and security solutions that help global brands eliminate email cyberattacks, protect customers and their personal data, and preserve brand reputation.
On the heels of its recent funding, rapid revenue growth, and customer momentum, Agari is now upping the ante even higher against cybercriminals with the launch of the Agari Trust Network. This important network further underscores and builds upon Agari’s commitment to transforming the security landscape by creating a world safe from cyberattacks.
“As recent news headlines keep reminding us, cybercriminals seem to get only bolder and more brazen in their attacks on consumers and companies across the globe, and email, unfortunately, is the single most effective and widely used vector of attack,” said Patrick Peterson, CEO and founder of Agari. “With the Agari Trust Network, we’re creating an ecosystem of email trust, ensuring an ever-widening circle of companies that are committed to securing email against malicious email attacks, spoofing and the other schemes these sophisticated thieves use.”
The charter members of the Agari Trust Network are leading email solution providers including Epsilon, Inbox Marketer, Sailthru, Silverpop (an IBM company), and Yesmail, and are joining the connected and growing community of participants within the Agari Trust Network to provide unprecedented visibility, protection and deliverability for their customers.
The Agari Trust Network enables partners to expand and enhance the cybersecurity ecosystem globally by creating a level of visibility and control for managing email data in the cloud and a connected community of global brands, mail providers and technology partners working to grow brand trust. Industry-leading security companies will join forces with Agari to promote and refer the Agari solution, which affects visibility and control at Internet scale.
The Email Solution Provider charter members of the Agari Trust Network will gain access to Agari Pro, enabling email authentication that is even faster, more immediate and easier to use than current solutions, while also enhancing email channel visibility. By partnering with Agari, the charter members are joining the largest email providers who have already enabled DMARC – including AOL, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo! – to improve deliverability and prevent email abuse.
As a founding member of DMARC.org and contributing author of the open standard DMARC that undergirds its solutions, Agari helps companies combat the crippling business threat of cyberattacks. Companies before have not had this level of visibility into their email channel to see owned email, third party email, or potentially malicious threats.
By partnering with Agari and becoming part of the Agari Trust Network, these leading Email Solution Providers can provide unprecedented visibility to their clients, improving the email channel from end-to-end. The Agari Trust Network will enable partners to:
- Provide customers with global visibility into their email flows
- Gain even better email deliverability through additional best practices
- Protect their customers’ brand & domain from use by criminals
And will be able to provide their customers with several key benefits, including:
1. Confidence to open & respond to your emails
2. Visibility into how ISPs are processing your email
3. Full and efficient Email Authentication (SPF, DKIM & DMARC)
Agari unveiled the Agari Trust Network at the Messaging, Malware and Mobile Anti-Abuse Working Group (M3AAWG) event, where leading industry experts, researchers and public policy officials come together to work against bots, malware, spam, viruses, denial-of-service attacks and other online exploitation. M3AAWG represents more than one billion mailboxes from some of the largest network operators worldwide.
Agari is actively recruiting new partners to join the charter members of the Agari Trust Network, and welcomes new members as well. To see a full list of the program’s participants, for additional information, or to apply for the Agari Trust Network, visit: http://agari.com/partners/.
