Trainees get unique job-aids: Social Engineering Red Flags™ with 22 things to watch out for in email, and 20 ways to block Mobile Attacks (PDF). Your Training Campaigns do the heavy lifting of getting users through their training. We can offer you a package or training modules customized for your organization. Our SCORM compliant modules can be hosted in our cloud-LMS or be uploaded in your own LMS.
The first thing out of your end-user's mouth when they finish the training module? "Wow, I did not know it was that dangerous on the Internet, how do I share this with my family?" And we have an answer for that too...
You can schedule regular Phishing Security Tests (PST for short) from our large library of more than 15,000 "known-to-work" templates, or choose from the community templates section, which were created "by admins for admins" to share with their peers. You can also create your own custom phishing templates. There are many more features!
The Industry Benchmarking feature lets you compare your organization’s Phish-Prone percentage™ with other companies in your industry. See where you stack up! Monitor your employee Phish-Prone percentages over time and watch how performance from your initial baseline phishing test, after 90 days, and 1 year compares. With regular phishing security tests and training campaigns, you’ll see how your Human Firewall improves over time helping to reduce risk and improve your IT security defense. You’ll have machine-learning based Advanced Reporting that helps you keep a pulse on how your security awareness program and employees stack up against other companies in your industry. Great intel to share with your management team!
Our Phishing Reply Tracking allows you to track if a user replies to a simulated phishing email and can capture the information sent in the reply. You can also track links clicked by users as well as test and track if users are opening Office attachments and then enabling macros.
In case an employee falls for one of these simulated phishing attacks, you have several options for correction, including instant remedial online training. You can schedule one-shot, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly simulated phishing attacks and immediately see which employees fall for these social engineering attacks. Here is some visible proof the training works over a 12-month period.
In addition, KnowBe4’s no-charge Phish Alert Button reinforces your organization’s security culture, users can report suspicious emails with one click.
Social Engineering Indicators™ (SEI) patented technology, turns every simulated phishing email into a tool IT can use to instantly train employees. When a user clicks on your SEI-enabled simulated phishing emails, they are routed to a landing page that includes a dynamic copy of that phishing email showing all the red flags. You can also customize any simulated phishing email and create your own red flags. Users can then immediately see the potential pitfalls and learn to spot the indicators they missed in the future.
USB Drive Test™ allows you to test your user’s reactions to unknown USBs, on average 45% of users will plug in USBs they find! You can download a special, "beaconized" Microsoft Office file from your KnowBe4 admin console onto any USB drive which you can drop at an on-site high traffic area. If an employee picks up the USB drive, plugs it in their workstation, and opens the file, it will "call home" and report the fail. Should a user also enable the macros in the file, then additional data is also tracked and made available in the admin console.
GEO-location lets you see where your simulated phishing attack failures are on a map, with drill-down capability and CSV-export options.
Automate the path your employees take to smarter security decisions. With the powerful Smart Groups feature, you can use each employees’ behavior and user attributes to tailor phishing campaigns, training assignments, remedial learning and reporting.
Create sophisticated, targeted workflows without the headache, and make sure every employee is a strong building block of your human firewall. You can see the intersection of the criteria you specify - whether you’re building simple phishing clickers remedial training workflow or complex, multi-criteria location, behavior and timing-based workflow. Best of all, Smart Groups is a powerful ad-hoc, real-time query tool that you use to get detailed reporting for management, so you’ll always know how your security awareness program is working.

Easy User Management
KnowBe4’s Active Directory Integration allows you to easily upload user data and saves you time by eliminating the need to manually manage user changes. Once the ADI is configured, users will be added, changed and archived in sync with changes made within AD automatically. If you use Microsoft Azure AD, you can enable automatic provisioning for the addition and removal of users. You can also upload users with CSV files. You can also use SCIM integration for user provisioning with your SCIM identity provider to import your users and groups from your identity provider into your KnowBe4 console.
Security Roles allows you to assign granular access control for users and groups within the KnowBe4 console. Create custom permissions for the exact roles needed by your organization. Easily allow groups like HR teams to access reporting only to review individual user results or employees with creative control to create phishing templates and landing pages.
