American IT software company HelpSystems recently announced the acquisition of Beyond Security and Agari as it seeks to enhance its cybersecurity portfolio.

Agari is a Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions provider for phishing security.

Beyond Security provides automated vulnerability assessment and compliance solutions using the company’s products, beSecure, beSource, beStorm, covering areas such as vulnerability scanning and management, code analysis, and black box testing.

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.”
