In the case of an on going or retro active phishing attack, Agari Active Defense does extremely well in identifying the participants. Also, Agari Active Defense is capable of removing any of the detected items from the recipients inbox while blocking the senders and prevent any future entries.

If you have the Check Point environment and want to utilize the Checkpoint environment, you should use the [Check Point] ThreatCloud. Without [Check Point] ThreatCloud, there’s no way to stop the 0days or APTs. However, [Check Point] ThreatCloud relies on the Checkpoint infrastructure to be used and integrated. If you have other firewall and/or endpoint vendors, [Check Point] ThreatCloud is not the best service to be used. Checkpoint also offers 24x7 threat cloud-managed security services to [...] organizations. Threat cloud-managed security services leverage the threat cloud decreasing the detection time and false-positive rates via increasing protection rates.

  • High score rates [are] seen on breach systems after deploying systems integrated with [Check Point] ThreatCloud
  • Catch rates are very high compared to other vendors
  • One missing thing is the detection for localized URLs and IPs
  • Purchasing within the 3-year perspective is cheap compared to other solutions; ROI is generally six months
