Cofense Named Winner – Best IT-Security-Related Training Program
– 2016 SC Magazine Awards

Why Are Companies Switching from Wombat to Cofense?

Email gateway provider Proofpoint realized their technology could not stop all email threats from reaching end user inboxes. So they purchased Wombat phishing to try and help with the human side of email defense. Cofense has known all along that technology isn’t enough to stop all phishing attacks. After all, Cofense created this space and is the leader in human phishing defense solutions.

The short version? Cofense’s got what Wombat users are looking for – a real phishing defense and response solution.
