PhishER Security Roles makes KnowBe4’s PhishER email quarantine security measures more efficient. It allows cybersecurity professionals to assign custom permissions for the exact incident response roles and responsibilities that they need in their organizations. Therefore, each member of the security team handles an email analysis component that best suits their skillset.

“With phishing attacks continuing to escalate, sophisticated features for defense tools like PhishER are needed to combat these ever-present threats,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “Having a way to determine specific roles across security teams will strengthen defenses and help each person better manage their workload as it continues to grow.”

Phishing is still the most widely used cyber attack vector, and according to KnowBe4’s 2020 Benchmarking Report, 37.9% of untrained users will fail a phishing test. Such prevalence of email security threats brought KnowBe4 to further build up its tools with new features like PhishER Security Roles. This feature will help security teams manage their users’ surplus of email threats faster and more effectively.

The Security Roles feature is now available to all of KnowBe4’s PhishER customers. More information about this new feature is available here.
