Company recognized as a Leader for second consecutive year and positioned highest in ability to execute
LEESBURG, VA. – October 27, 2017 – Today PhishMe®, the leading provider of human phishing defense solutions, announced it was named a leader in Gartner’s October 2017 Magic Quadrant for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training. PhishMe has been recognized as a leader for two consecutive years and is positioned highest in ability to execute.
Over 90 percent of breaches are attributed to phishing emails targeting employees, and businesses are increasingly aware of the need to make employees an active part of their cyber defense. PhishMe enables businesses to build resilient employees that also provide critical intelligence.
“We are thrilled to be acknowledged as a leader by Gartner for two years in a row,” said Rohyt Belani, CEO and Co-Founder, PhishMe. “We believe our placement in the Leaders quadrant validates our commitment to the ongoing innovation that has allowed us to evolve from awareness training into a proven phishing defense and incident response solution aimed at stopping phishing attacks in progress.”
“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,” said Aaron Higbee, CTO and Co-Founder, PhishMe.
To protect against advanced phishing attacks coming from motivated attackers, many modern enterprises rely on PhishMe – including more than 50 percent of the Fortune 100 – as the foundation of their security programs. This is one more indication of PhishMe’s leadership in the security industry, along with many other awards and honors that 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.
