PhishMe’s research has shown that more than 90% of data breaches occur as a result of employees falling for phishing emails, highlighting the importance of training employees to be more security aware and teaching them how to identify and respond to phishing threats.

Rather than simply training employees to be more security aware, PhishMe’s solutions put that training to the test with simulated phishing emails. The emails give employees practice at identifying the latest phishing threats in a safe environment, and provide feedback to employers on the effectiveness of the training program. When individuals fail a phishing test, they can be scheduled to receive further training. The solution also turns employees into threat intelligence gatherers, encouraging them to report phishing emails to their security teams. Suspicious emails can be reported with a single click of the mouse.

PhishMe’s products are effective, easy to use, cost effective, and can help organizations prevent costly phishing-related data breaches. PhishMe’s library of content is now used by more than 50% of Fortune 100 companies as the basis of their security and phishing awareness programs.

“We’re thrilled to be acknowledged as a leader in the Gartner Security Awareness CBT Magic Quadrant for two years in row,” said Rohyt Belani, CEO and Co-Founder of PhishMe. “We believe our placement in the leader quadrant validates our commitment to expanding our capabilities and enhancing our solutions to go beyond awareness and to contribute to real defense – stopping attacks at the delivery point.”

In addition to being included in the October 2017 Leader’s Magic Quadrant, PhishMe has picked up numerous other awards and accolades in 2017, including being added to the 2017 Washington Business Journal’s Fast Growing Companies list, 2017 SC Europe Awards and a 2017 EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
