Phishing-specific incident response platform is regarded by independent industry-experts as one of the most advanced defenses against phishing

LEESBURG, VA – June 14, 2018: Cofense™, the leading provider of human-driven phishing defense solutions worldwide, announced today their phishing-specific incident response automation software, Cofense Triage™, was named one of the best security software solutions of 2018 by CSO Online. The roundup includes 12 cutting-edge solutions that were rigorously tested and independently reviewed by CSO and are considered to be among the overall best security solutions available in 2018.
In an article published this week, CSO conducted independent product reviews across emerging categories of cybersecurity offerings by following strict standards and review methodology to fully understand how the solutions function, were deployed in customer environments, and how they solved major problems across the threat landscape. All of the solutions were tested in a dedicated lab environment with some being tested directly against today’s most dangerous threats, according to the article.

Cofense Triage was included in the final list of best-in-breed solutions because of its unique ability to identify, respond to and disrupt phishing attacks by leveraging human-generated threat intelligence and was the only solution chosen in the phishing defense category. According to John Breeden II, who reviewed Cofense Triage for CSO, “…even now (Triage) represents one of the most advanced defenses against phishing.” The article also includes a link to the full Cofense Triage product review for readers.

The Cofense Phishing Defense Platform leverages human intelligence and technology to minimize the risk and impact of breach. Cofense solutions are designed to mobilize users to recognize and report active threats so that incident response teams can quickly respond and disrupt the attack kill chain at delivery. Cofense finds an average of 10% of all emails reported ‘suspicious’ by employees are malicious in nature, with that percentage growing monthly.

“Secure email gateways are bypassed daily by phishing emails and our research has shown us that awareness is not enough to stop phishing attack impact,” notes Aaron Higbee, CTO and co-founder of Cofense. “Cofense Triage is crucial for security operations teams to quickly find and disrupt active phishing attacks mere minutes after being reported within their organization. Having Triage recognized as one of this year’s best security software solutions, and the best phishing defense solution, by the technical experts at CSO Online is a true testament to that ability.”

Cofense Triage was first launched in 2015 and is available as a cloud, virtual appliance and managed service offering. Today, Cofense Triage is used by organizations around the world in all industries. For more information on Cofense Triage, or to schedule a demo of the solution, please visit our website:
