Company continues to positively impact employee behavior with effective solutions for phishing protection.

Leesburg, Va. – July 31, 2019 – Cofense™, the global leader in intelligent phishing defense solutions, today announced their position in the Leaders quadrant of the 2019 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training*. This is the fourth consecutive year that Cofense has achieved this position. Cofense believes being positioned as a leader in the quadrant is a testament to the company’s continued ability to deliver innovative solutions backed by superior customer experience.

“We are proud to be designated a leader in Gartner’s Security Awareness Computer-Based Training report,” said Rohyt Belani, CEO, Cofense. “We feel this industry recognition validates and reinforces that Cofense solutions, especially Cofense PhishMe™, offer the enterprise an effective security awareness solution that positively impacts employee behavior.”

Cofense provides a turnkey phishing defense solution that helps our customers leverage their conditioned employees to rapidly identify phishing attacks bypassing their email gateways and most importantly, give the security operations teams the products to streamline the detection and response cycle that ensues. In essence, Cofense customers are able to operationalize the training provided by Cofense PhishMe to demonstrably stop phishing attacks in their tracks.

Despite billions of dollars invested in perimeter controls, 90% of the emails reported with Cofense have bypassed at least one secure email gateway. In June, the company released its 2019 Phishing Threats and Malware Review which highlights the latest evolutions to threat actor campaigns and enhanced capacity for malware to evade perimeter controls and penetrate user inboxes. The trends further emphasize the need for all organizations to focus more on embracing the human element of cyber security.

In addition to Cofense receiving recognition for Security Education, Incident Response, Cyber Threat Intelligence and Managed Security Service in the Cyber Security Excellence Awards, the company has also received customer recognition and was also named a January 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers Choice for Security Awareness Computer-based Training Software.
