KnowBe4, the provider of the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, today announced it has translated its entire platform into Portuguese to help increase global accessibility. The platform has also been translated into Japanese.
For years, Brazil has suffered from many high-profile cyber attacks and it continues to be a target for cybercriminals. In fact, the nation tops the global list for cyber threats sent via email and ransomware, according to a study by Trend Micro.
“It’s widely known that Brazil has been a big target for the bad guys for many years now,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “Therefore, it is urgent for organizations in Brazil to implement security awareness training and simulated phishing as soon as possible to help their employees make smarter security decisions. The translation of our platform into Portuguese, in addition to the content we have already had available in Portuguese, will make it easier for IT and security professionals in Brazil to train their users in a language they’re familiar with and ultimately better protect their organizations.”
KnowBe4’s Kevin Mitnick Security Awareness Training (KMSAT) platform helps to educate employees on the latest security threats, including social engineering, spear phishing and ransomware attacks. The simulated phishing component of the platform allows IT and security professionals to test their users’ ability to spot a phishing email and other social engineering scams.
Beginning in March 2019 when KnowBe4 acquired Brazilian company El Pescador, the organization had a number of video training modules and simulated phishing templates available in Portuguese. This new translation of the entire console increases the number of training modules and phishing templates available in Portuguese and significantly enhances the overall experience for customers in Brazil.
