LEESBURG, Va. – April 24, 2023 – Cofense is pleased to announce that it has been recognized as the Best Product in the Anti-Phishing Category by the 2023 Cyber Defense Magazine Global InfoSec Awards.

In its tenth year, the Global InfoSec Awards program honors infosec organizations that stop breaches in new and innovative ways while having a unique and compelling value proposition. Winners are selected by security professionals that vote based on their independent review of the company, looking to identify best-of breed, next-generation cybersecurity solutions.

“Email continues to be one of the top targets for threat actors, especially as attackers advance their tactics to bypass standard secure email gateways,” said Keith Ibarguen, Chief Product Officer at Cofense. “Utilizing our unique, crowdsourced threat-intelligence from more than 35 million users worldwide, we can help our customers stop and defend against this evolving threat landscape faster, and more efficiently, than ever before. We are honored to receive this award as we continue to find new ways to protect our customers in this ever-changing email security landscape.”

With a 569% increase in malicious phishing emails in 2022, today’s organizations are up against increasing email security threats that are bypassing standard email security solutions. On average last year, Cofense Intelligence detected a malicious email every 108 seconds (about 2 minutes) that bypassed a current customer’s standard email security solution. The ability to detect malicious emails at such a rapid pace, as they bypass most standard email gateways (SEGs), is based on the Cofense end-to-end email security platform that leverages a global network of over 35+ million people that actively report suspected threats. Combined with advanced artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning to stop email attacks faster and stay ahead of threat actors evolving their strategies, Cofense continues to lead the way in innovation for email security.

“Cofense embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.
