Phishing leaves an organization susceptible to attack and unfortunately, one cannot rely on email filters or technology alone to catch everything. In fact, new research from cloud and email security specialist Avanan reveals that nearly 19% of phishing emails were bypassed by the anti-malware app, Microsoft Defender.

KnowBe4’s PhishER provides users with the opportunity to report potentially malicious emails to their security teams in real time. It also removes flagged emails from user inboxes and serves as a phishing emergency room for security teams to detect and respond to reported messages. The many features of PhishER alongside security awareness training work in tandem to stop and lower the chances of a malicious or phishing email affecting an organization and helps create an overall stronger security culture. It only takes one click on a good phishing email for it to be successful.

“Providing our customers with world-class products and an exceptional user experience has always been and will continue to be a priority for KnowBe4,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “Our easy-to-use PhishER platform revolutionizes the way security teams identify and respond to malicious emails and our security awareness training is continuously enhanced to better educate users on the multitude of cybersecurity threats- all of which enable users to make smarter security decisions. The nearly unanimous satisfactory reviews we receive directly from our customers fortifies KnowBe4’s commitment to providing outstanding products and customer service. We are grateful for the recognition and thank our customers for the feedback.”
