Share This Article
Cofense was recently included in the JMP Securities Elite 80, a list of the hottest privately held cybersecurity and IT infrastructure companies in 2022. We are proud to have been featured on this list each of the last 4 years, during a time in which our company has evolved profoundly – both our overall brand, and the technology solutions we bring to market. As noted by the JMP Securities Elite 80 authors, “A key theme that became apparent in the pandemic was that the role of IT infrastructure and cybersecurity have rapidly grown more critical and fast changing. Given the rapid paradigm shift in the way that society is adopting new technologies, we believe the competitive advantage of being a nimble and innovative technology vendor is even more powerful than in the past.” At Cofense, we couldn’t agree more. Innovation is core to our mission, and continues to be a driving force for significant product and service updates. Early on in our journey as a company, we grew our focus from solely security awareness simulation training to more broadly addressing the real phishing threats facing organizations. In early 2018, 10 years after our co-founders first registered the company domain with GoDaddy, we rebranded from PhishMe to Cofense. Fast forward to 2021, we recognized that solving the problems we originally set out to address would require continuous innovation. As a result, we were proud to take our multi-layered email security architecture to a whole new level through the acquisition of Cyberfish and the launch of brand-new product capabilities. Today, Cofense has equipped more than 30 million people in organizations across the globe to report suspicious emails through Cofense Reporter™, an easy to use, one-click email toolbar button that gives Cofense access to a vast dataset of advanced phishing threat intelligence and more visibility into the actionable phishing emails that are bypassing secure email gateways (SEGs) and hitting user inboxes than any other security company. “Every day, our team analyzes real phish that land in the inboxes of real people, and we are able to back up what we believe wholeheartedly – which is that conditioned users report real phish. We recently published our 2022 Annual State of Phishing Report, which sheds light on the value of human reporting and the downfall of relying solely on technology controls to prevent phishing. We are committed to helping organizations succeed at a layered phishing defense strategy that encompasses machine learning and crowd-sourced human intelligence for defending against the threats that continue to adapt,” said Cofense co-founder and CEO, Rohyt Belani. The full Elite 80 report from JMP Securities highlights some of the most interesting and strategically positioned private companies in the industry. “We are honored to be listed among these other cybersecurity brands in the 2022 Elite 80, and look forward to the strides our industry will make in 2022,” added Belani.
