KnowBe4 and SpyCloud Form Partnership to Enhance Capabilities to Check for Exposed Emails

KnowBe4’s new Email Exposure Check Pro tool identifies at-risk users within organizations

KnowBe4, the provider of the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, today announced a new partnership with SpyCloud to enhance its ability to check for exposed emails on the internet.

More than 23 million exposed corporate credentials tied to Fortune 1,000 employees are available for sale on the criminal underground, according to SpyCloud research. That’s why it’s crucial to have a verification mechanism in place to ensure corporate emails are protected.EECPro-1

The partnership with SpyCloud brings a new and improved version to one of KnowBe4’s complimentary tools. The Email Exposure Check Pro (EEC Pro) checks public documents, files and social media for email addresses that have been exposed within organizations. Users’ email addresses will be compared against SpyClould’s massive database to see if any of their credentials or other personal information were exposed in a data breach.

“Breaches happen every day and it’s our job to equip cybersecurity professionals with the best tools to help them fight the bad guys,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “Partnering with an organization like SpyCloud gives KnowBe4 the ability to expand our offerings to the cybersecurity community. They have the largest collection of recovered breach data in the world with nearly 80 billion records, which will help KnowBe4’s customers and users of the EEC Pro tool stay ahead of account takeover.”

“Most people don’t know when their data has been compromised, making the average internet user and their employer targets for account takeovers and follow-on attacks,” said Chris LaConte, chief strategy officer at SpyCloud. “Through this partnership, SpyCloud’s data will help KnowBe4 customers proactively remediate exposed passwords as soon as they start circulating in cybercriminal circles, reducing the risk of successful account takeover attacks.”
