Cofense Named a Consecutive Leader in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant
PhishMe has been named a consecutive leader in Gartner’s 2017 Security Awareness Computer-Based Training Magic Quadrant. It’s the second year we’ve been recognized as a leader and positioned highest in “ability to execute.”
“We’re thrilled to be acknowledged as a leader in the Gartner Security Awareness CBT Magic Quadrant for two years in row,” Rohyt Belani, CEO and Co-Founder, PhishMe. “We believe our placement in the leader quadrant validates our commitment to expanding our capabilities and enhancing our solutions to go beyond awareness and to contribute to real defense – stopping attacks at the delivery point.”
Aaron Higbee, CTO and Co-Founder, added, “We recognize that threat actors are growing in sophistication and capabilities, and we want to enable businesses to take an offensive approach to security by using the intel from end users to stop phishing attacks dead in their tracks.”
With over 90 percent of breaches attributed to phishing emails targeting employees, businesses are increasingly aware of the need to make users an active part of their cyber defense.
This year’s recognition in the Gartner Magic Quadrant is one more indication of PhishMe’s industry leadership, along with many other awards and honors the company has received, including the most recent accolades from: the 2017 EY Entrepreneur of the Year, 2017 Washington Business Journal’s Fast Growing Companies, 2017 SC Europe Awards, 2016 SC Award, 2016 Inc 500/5,000 award, and 2016 Information Security Products Guide Global Excellence Award.
