We’re Making It Easy for MSSP’s to Deliver Phishing Defense
A new Cofense™ Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) program makes it easy for service providers to offer phishing defense to small and medium-sized businesses. Phishing is a huge problem for SMB’s. With limited budget and expertise, they’re often targets of spear phishing, ransomware, and other attacks.
Now MSSPs can tackle their customers’ #1 problem.
Why would an MSSP want to partner with Cofense? For starters, our MSSP program helps them solve their customers’ #1 cybersecurity problem. The vast majority of data breaches begin as phishing emails. According to the 2018 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 92% of malware is delivered via email. And the Symantec 2018 Internet Security Threat Report notes that the average user gets 16 malicious emails per month.
When an MSSP partners with Cofense, it can offer end-to-end protection against phishing attacks. Security awareness training (Cofense PhishMeTM) is just the beginning. MSSPs can also offer one-click email reporting (Cofense ReporterTM), plus phishing-specific incident response (Cofense TriageTM and Cofense VisionTM). By combining human vigilance and technological efficiency, SMBs can reduce the growing risks of phishing attacks.
Free professional services, certifications, and board reports.
We also offer one free year of professional services, helping MSSPs manage anti-phishing programs. They’ll learn the right cadence of running phishing simulations, along with tips for measuring results and communicating success. What’s more, MSSPs can get certified in both Cofense PhishMe and Cofense Triage, deepening their knowledge and professional credentials.
Because boards of directors and the C-suite are cybersecurity decision-makers, we offer board reports to help MSSPs communicate the value of phishing defense. Thanks to a simple, visual format that lets data tell the story, corporate leadership can see the return on their investment. How many employees are clicking on phishes and reporting them? How do the company’s results compare within and outside the industry? Now it’s simple to share the metrics.
Helping to save time with automated playbooks.
To help you respond to phishing attacks quickly AND efficiently, our solution comes with playbooks that create repeatable workflows. There’s no need to reinvent the wheel when facing common attacks. This saves man hours and operational cost—your bottom line will thank you. Moreover, highly trained (and highly paid) security analysts are freed to hunt threats instead of teeing up basic tasks, again and again.
Cofense PhishMe, our awareness solution built on phishing simulations, also offers playbooks. This lets you to configure a year’s worth of simulations in less than hour. You can “set and forget” and turn your attention to everything else on your plate.
Finally, competitive, predictable pricing and the option of monthly billing makes life easier for all concerned. MSSP’s can manage cash flow better and customers gain access to a complete set of solutions, one that saves on software, implementation, staffing, and support.
