Kaseya boosts security play with Graphus buy

Kaseya's security capabilities have received a boost following the firm's acquisition of automated phishing defence platform Graphus, which is based on patented AI technology.

The platform is designed to defend Microsoft Office 365 and G Suite inboxes from email threats, such as phishing, business email compromise, account takeover, identity spoofing and malware and ransomware. 

​Manoj Srivastava, CEO and co-founder of US-headquartered Graphus, will lead Kaseya’s cloud email security practice. 

“At a time when workforces are nearly 100% remote and cloud email adoption is at an all time high, businesses have a greater need for strong cyber security defences to avoid data breaches and financial consequences," said Fred Voccola, CEO of Kaseya.

"Graphus has been used to protect Kaseya's own inboxes for nearly a year.

"With Graphus protecting over 3,200 Kaseya inboxes and processing over 22m of our emails, we’ve eliminated about 250,000 unsafe emails, quarantined nearly 15,000 phishing attacks and blocked 3,400 executive spoofing and 2,400 impersonation attacks."

The deal builds on Kaseya's 2018 acquisition of the ID Agent dark web monitoring and security awareness training solution.
