Kaseya swallows Graphus

MSP Kaseya expanded the capabilities of its IT Complete platform by acquiring and integrating Graphus, an automated phishing defence platform.

At a time when workforces are nearly all remote and cloud email adoption is at an all-time high, businesses have an even greater need for strong cybersecurity defenses to avoid devastating data breaches and financial consequences. Kaseya claims that with this acquisition, IT Complete now includes a simple, automated, powerful and cost-effective email security and phishing defence platform.

The Graphus solution uses patented AI technology to defend Microsoft Office 365 and G Suite inboxes from a variety of threats delivered via email, including phishing and spear phishing, business email compromise (BEC), account takeover (ATO), identity spoofing, malware and ransomware.

The addition of Graphus lets customers augment their existing ID Agent Digital Risk Protection (DRP) Platform – including Dark Web ID, a Dark Web monitoring platform, BullPhish ID, a phishing simulation and cybersecurity awareness training solution, and Passly, a secure identity and access management solution – with Graphus’ automated email defence.

Kaseya CEO Fred Voccola said the acquisition of Graphus catapults IT Complete to the next level and secures Kaseya’s position as the only comprehensive, tightly integrated, cost-effective platform in the industry to deliver all IT and security management needs for MSPs and SMBs in a single platform.

“Kaseya can speak to Graphus’ impressive capabilities firsthand, having been a customer for nearly a year. Like most other businesses, we face countless phishing and identity-spoofing attacks every week. As an Office 365 shop, we were relying on O365’s Advanced Threat Protection, but found a lot was still getting through. With Graphus protecting over 3,200 Kaseya inboxes and processing over 22 million 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. Having seen these outstanding results for ourselves, I’m even more excited to extend the same unmatched protection to our customers so they can close the security gaps of their cloud email platforms and, for MSPs, provide a low-cost solution to generate additional profits.”

Graphus will continue to operate as an independent business within Kaseya, led by  CEO and co-founder of Graphus, Manoj Srivastava.
