LEESBURG, Va. – May 31, 2023Cofense, a global email security company and leading provider of phishing detection and response (PDR) solutions, is excited to share that the company has been awarded three 2023 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. Cofense was honored as a gold winner for Most Innovative Cybersecurity Company and Phishing Detection and Response (PDR), and a silver winner in the Email Security category, highlighting its expertise and dedication to stopping advanced email security threats.  

As the only end-to-end email security platform powered by a global network of 35+ million people, Cofense utilizes three unique intelligence sources (human intelligence, artificial intelligence and email attack intelligence) to stop attacks missed by traditional email security solutions. Deployed through various products in our platform, these intelligence sources enable organizations to automatically remove attacks first seen by other Cofense customers, block attacks that have never been seen before, and utilize the power of automated technology without the worry of false positives. 

The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards celebrate outstanding companies, products and professionals who exemplify excellence, innovation and leadership in the field of information security. The global award program, created by Cybersecurity Insiders in collaboration with the Information Security Community on LinkedIn, draws upon the extensive expertise of over 600,000 cybersecurity professionals and received over 800 nominations in 2023. 

“We are thrilled to be recognized by the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards,” said Rohyt Belani, CEO and co-founder of Cofense. “At a time when we are seeing a staggering 568% surge in malicious emails and a 44% rise in malware successfully evading conventional email security measures, it is imperative for all organizations to establish a robust and all-encompassing email security program. Cofense is proud to be a leading innovator in the email security space.” 

Cofense is fully committed to empowering organizations with indispensable tools that enable them to effectively combat credential theft, business email compromise (BEC), and the severe financial repercussions of ransomware attacks – threats that often bypass secure email gateways (SEGs).
