San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) July 30, 2014
Agari, the leading provider of data-driven security solutions that detect and prevent advanced email cyberthreats, today announced the company has been recognized as anAlwaysOn Global 250 Top Private Company winner. The announcement comes on the heels of the company’s continued growth, seeing its client base double in the past year and revenue triple in the first half of 2014 compared to the first half of 2013.
AlwaysOn Global 250, which is awarded to the world’s most outstanding and disruptive private companies, represents the top emerging companies that are creating new business opportunities in the world of consumer Internet, SaaS, mobile, on-demand, digital media and cloud-computing sectors. The AlwaysOn editorial team and a panel of global industry experts selected these 250 elite companies based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.
“This year’s AlwaysOn Global 250 represent the highest-growth opportunities in today’s private company marketplace,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “These innovators are making it possible for an entirely new generation of application and software solutions to enter the technology marketplace.”
“Agari has seen considerable momentum in the past year, a result in the increasing and acute awareness among the security community and the C-Suite that email is the weakest link in the cyberattack kill chain,” said Patrick Peterson, CEO of Agari. “With household brand names being targeted and consumer data being breached, organizations are realizing the urgent need to secure email to protect consumers and the enterprise.”
According to the Anti-Phishing Work Group, there was a nearly 11 percent rise in phishing-related cyberthreats in the first quarter of 2014. Agari is now analyzing 6 billion email messages per day, up from 4.5 billion, identifying over 2 million malicious URLs per month, and blocking over 200 million malicious emails per month, enabling the company to further power real-time threat detection and eliminate email cyberattacks to protect consumers.
After the initial month working with Agari, most clients are surprised to learn the totality of where their email is coming from, including owned and third party domains, as well as the volume of abuse. By providing global brands with visibility into and control of their email channel, Agari helps security executives eliminate reputational risk, which is a top concern for 83% of information security professionals according to this Frost & Sullivan survey.
