Users Are NOT the Weakest Link. Let’s bust that myth right now. 100% of the phish Cofense finds in customers’ environments were reported by users. 0% were stopped by perimeter technology. When secure email gateways fail, users are your last line of defense. Will they fall for a phish or report it? Cofense PhishMeTM educates them on the real attacks your company faces, transforming vulnerable targets into active defenders.
Cofense PhishMe simulates active phishing threats to condition smarter user behavior. It’s the opposite of “phish testing,” which assesses vulnerability but fails to change behavior through continual learning. Unlike machines, humans can’t be patched. People remain aware of threats by practicing regularly and remaining invested in organizational defense.
Because threat actors constantly innovate, Cofense offers simulations based on their latest tactics. Our simulations are shaped by our deep threat intelligence gathered from the millions of real phishing threats analyzed by the Cofense Phishing Defense Center™, Cofense Intelligence™, and Cofense Labs. Our Active Threat scenarios create the most relevant learning moments. Plus, our new SEG Misses filter lets you deploy phishing scenarios that have bypassed perimeter solutions, similar to those deployed at your organization.
Cofense PhishMe Playbooks let you configure a full 12-month program—phishing scenarios, landing pages, attachments, and educational content—in just a few clicks. Our Smart Suggest capability uses advanced algorithms and embedded best practices to recommend scenarios based on current active threats, industry relevance, and your program’s history.
With Cofense PhishMe Responsive Delivery, you can maximize user engagement by delivering simulations only when users are active in email. Responsive Delivery also eliminates whitelisting and helps reach users across multiple shifts and time zones.
Click rate, or susceptibility, is only part of the story. More important are reporting and resiliency rates, the latter being the ratio of people who click to those who report bad emails. Cofense PhishMe comes with Cofense ReporterTM , our one-click email reporting button—turn users into active defenders and reliable human sensors. Combine reporting data to understand how users are likely to react in a real attack. Our Board Reports allow your executives to monitor program performance and track the change in resiliency to phishing.
Security awareness training should never be “one and done” or offered reactively after an incident occurs. Cofense LMS™ complements Cofense PhishMe’s experiential learning and further prepares them for any real threats they may face.
In security awareness, content is still king. The dedicated team behind Cofense PhishMe constantly updates our phishing, compliance, and cybersecurity content. From videos to infographics to CBTs, the Cofense PhishMe catalog has thousands of educational assets. Additionally, customers can access new premium content from our partners.
