Despite multiple layers of protection and user awareness training, phishing, ransomware and other socially engineered attacks are still the top means of impactful threats across enterprises, according to SANS surveys. Why? Because these messages look benign and seem to come from known senders (such as business partners or insiders) or nonthreatening senders, they too often pass inspection and arrive in the inbox. In this webcast, hear from SANS senior instructor Dave Shackleford talk about how Agari, through sender authenticity modeling (and without antispam running in the environment), massively scans, authenticates and passes on only good mail to recipients. In this webcast, learn about:

  • Trends in spearphishing, business email compromise, ransomware and consumer phishing, including why they're so difficult to prevent.
  • How Agari's cloud-based analytics, trust authenticity analysis and other techniques detected these types of attacks and took actions based on policies.
  • How Agari's \Model of Trust Analytics" differs from the traditional approaches of whitelisting and malicious content detection to make split-second decisions on inbound messages.

The reviewer's experience with setup, verification, policy creation, analytics and dashboards during emulated email attacks.
