HelpSystems has acquired Agari, an enterprise service provider protecting against email threats. Agari’s software protects organizations against phishing, business email compromise, and email threats. In light of today’s complex security environment and increased cybercrime.
“Cybercriminals increasingly use email as a prime way to infiltrate businesses and gain access to sensitive data and IP, causing untold damage in terms of cost and reputation,” said Kate Bolseth, CEO, HelpSystems. “We’re thrilled to welcome Agari and their email phishing defense prowess to the HelpSystems family. Agari will be a notable asset to HelpSystems as we work together to give global customers new tools for securing their valuable data and achieving peace of mind.”
“We have found the perfect home in HelpSystems, with its dedication to supporting organizations in their efforts to achieve a holistic approach to email and data security,” said Patrick Peterson, founder and CEO, Agari. “We look forward to continuing to work with our customers to provide the first line of defense against phishing attacks, and we can now introduce them to a host of complementary solutions to address gaps in all aspects of their security postures.”
