It has been an impressive start to the year for PhishMe (now Cofense). The company has already picked up a 2018 Stevie Award for customer service and now the Leesburg, VA-based provider of human phishing defense solutions has been named a winner in five categories at the 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards.
The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards program honors companies and individuals in the field of cybersecurity that have demonstrated excellence, innovation, and leadership and have developed products and services that help organizations improve their security posture and defend against the ever-increasing range of cyber threats.
At this year’s awards ceremony, PhishMe was named a Gold Winner in the Incident Response category for PhishMe Triage and a Gold winner in the Threat Detection, Intelligence, and Response category for PhishMe Intelligence.
PhishMe was named a Silver winner in the Security Education category for PhishMe CBFree – A free phishing simulation platform developed to help SMBs test their resilience to phishing attacks. Another Silver award was given to the company for PhishMe Customer Support in North America in the Cybersecurity Team of the Year category, adding to the Stevie award for the same team.
PhishMe Reporter and Simulator were named Bronze Winners in the Security Education Platform category, and the firm was also named a finalist in the Managed Security Service category for PhishMe Professional Services.
“We are honored that the Cybersecurity Excellence Award team recognized the value of our teams, services and solutions, which help organizations focus on an often-missing piece of the security puzzle – the human element,” said Rohyt Belani, co-founder and CEO of PhishMe. “Our platform allows more Fortune 500s and government agencies than any other to empower employees to recognize and report phishing attacks, while enabling incident response teams to quickly analyze these threats in real time.”
