International Software Program Names Cofense a Finalist for Best SaaS Product in the Small and Medium-Sized Business Category

Leesburg, VA – August 2, 2018 – Cofense™, the leading provider of human-driven phishing defense solutions worldwide, announced today that the company was named a finalist in the 2018 SaaS Awards Program in the Small Business/SMB category. Now in its third year, the Software-as-a-Service Awards program recognizes and celebrates innovation in software by companies from around the world.

“We are thrilled to be named a finalist for the 2018 SaaS Awards in the Small Business/SMB category. Cofense has long believed that all companies, no matter their size or budget, should have access to the solutions they need to build resiliency against today’s most pervasive cyber threats,” said Rohyt Belani, CEO & Co-founder of Cofense. “Our turnkey SaaS application, Cofense PhishMe Free, was specifically built as a zero-cost phishing defense solution for companies with 500 or fewer employees and enables employees to create a human firewall against spear-phishing attacks – one of the top security threats impacting organizations today.”

Cofense PhishMe Free™ is a no-cost, easily managed security software service designed to help small and mid-sized companies assess end user risk exposure and condition employees to play a role in the organization’s resilience to phishing attacks. The free solution offers a wealth of educational content, as well as reporting and analytics capabilities to show the results of the simulated phishing campaigns and reductions to end user susceptibility to real-life attacks with no impact on their IT budgets.

“In our third year promoting SaaS exclusively alongside its sister awards program, the long-running Cloud Awards, we have seen a huge variety of submissions from the US joining those from Canada, Europe, Australia and the East – from organizations whose turnovers rank the highest in the world, to innovative not-for-profits seeking to provide essential productivity tools to their users,” said Larry Johnson, SaaS Awards and Cloud Awards organizer. “All entrants demonstrated considerable commitment to innovation in software solutions, and to make the shortlist itself is a huge achievement. With such a concentrated level of success in the shortlist, our judges have a significant task ahead of them to arrive at our final award winners.”

Final SaaS Awards winners will be announced on Tuesday, August 28, 2018, and the program will return in Spring 2019. Over 300 organizations entered, with international entries coming from North America, Canada, Australia, UK, Europe and the Middle East. To view the full shortlist, please visit:
