LEESBURG, Va. & SAN FRANCISCO – March 3, 2016 – PhishMe® Inc., the leader in human phishing defense solutions, today announced that SC Magazine honored the company with a 2016 SC Award for Best IT and Security Training Program. Winners of this prestigious award were chosen after undergoing a rigorous judging process that included testimonials, industry assessments and additional research. PhishMe was hand-picked by a panel of judges for its outstanding service, qualifications and advancements to the cybersecurity industry.
“Being recognized by SC Magazine is an honor that further validates our company and mission,” said Rohyt Belani, CEO of PhishMe. “We disrupted a market made up of security awareness training providers by delivering a solution that focuses on modifying behavior through experiences – empowering the entire workforce to be the last line of defense. Not only are employees conditioned to identify and report phishing attempts, they also provide critical attack intelligence to the IT Security teams in defending against data breaches, ransoms and systems shut downs.”
PhishMe’s comprehensive human phishing defense solution provides customers with a comprehensive solution for attack identification, human-verified intelligence and incident response that turns employees into the most powerful line of defense against phishing — the most successful and costly cyberattack vector in use today. By implementing a solution that conditions employees and turns them into an additional layer of defense against attacks, security teams empower the entire organization – ultimately reducing susceptibility by as much as 95 percent.
This award is the latest in a series of recent accomplishments for PhishMe, including recognition on the Inc. 5000 and Deloitte Fast 500 lists, that solidify the company as a dominant force in phishing defense. PhishMe currently counts almost half of the Fortune 100 on its customer roster – definitively cementing its position as an innovator at the forefront of the fight against cybercriminals.
“Businesses today are increasingly in the firing line of big cyber threats,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. “One of the most important keys to fighting these threats is the ongoing training and education that winners of the Professional Award pride themselves on. PhishMe is helping set a new standard of excellence in the IT security industry.”
