“We are especially pleased to be included as a leader in the Gartner Security Awareness CBT Magic Quadrant this year,” stated Rohyt Belani, CEO and Co-Founder, PhishMe. “We take a more interactive approach to security awareness than the traditional vendors. PhishMe creates awareness and training materials as part of its Human Phishing Defense platform, which is designed to modify behavior through experiential learning and engagement. It’s an approach which has been proven to reduce the threat of employees falling victim to sophisticated cyberattacks by up to 95 percent.”
PhishMe provides a complete anti-phishing product portfolio that engages both everyday user and the IT Security response teams. “PhishMe aggressively invests in new product capabilities and services, which is a critical requirement for any cybersecurity company,” commented Aaron Higbee, CTO and Co-Founder, PhishMe. “Hackers are always coming up with new ways to circumnavigate our defenses and the onus is on security vendors to develop new ways to respond. We believe that Gartner has recognized PhishMe’s technical innovations and growth in this area.”
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 2016 SC Award, 2016 Inc 500/5,000 award, 2016 EY Entrepreneur of the Year finalist, 2016 Information Security Products Guide Global Excellence Award, 2016 CDM Infosec Awards and 2016 Washington Business Journal Best Place to Work Award.
