Cofense Email Security

Cofense for Higher Education

The smart way to protect against phishing attacks.

Intelligent users aren’t always enough to stop complex phishing attacks.

Many college and university “bring your own device” policies make it hard to implement a unified and secure network. IT teams often struggle to track and manage all the unique devices, with their combination of personal and professional data. This loophole appeals to hackers, who usually use an institution’s network as a way to steal confidential information and extort individuals.

A comprehensive solution to inform your phishing response

Protect Your Users

The constantly changing population of students, researchers, academics, and staff at universities can make it difficult to secure all devices and the network. Our security solution combines Computer Vision and AI with a global network of human sensors, so you can quickly detect and stop phish — and keep threats from ever reaching users’ inboxes.

Secure Important Information

Education institutions contain a wealth of knowledge, from personal student information to patented, academic research. Attackers are after both, which can lead to compromised research and student trust. Our solution spans all parts of the phishing attack cycle to help IT teams catch complex threats before they compromise institutional integrity.

Empower IT Teams

To take the burden off overworked and overwhelmed internal IT teams, implement an adaptive, flexible security that spots new and emerging threats. With AI capabilities and a global network of real, human sensors, our solution is designed to get smarter over time, so your IT team can respond quickly and intelligently to any attack.
