Advanced Protection for Evolving Threats

Email threats get more sophisticated every year. Worrying percentages make it past your secure email gateway (SEG) and into your users’ inboxes. Social engineering attacks increasingly target your high-risk users. The 2023 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report shows email alone is the highest cause of data breaches. Researchers at ArmorBlox recently reported that 56% of all attacks bypass your legacy security filters. The upshot? Legacy email security layers let these digital time bombs slip into the inboxes of your users.

Revolutionary, Proactive Anti-Phishing Defense

PhishER Plus is the most powerful anti-phishing protection available in the world. PhishER Plus is powered by a unique KnowBe4 global threat feed. This triple-validated phishing threat feed automatically blocks phishing attacks before they make it into your users’ inboxes using:

Global Network
KnowBe4's global network of over 10 million highly trained end-users and their PhishER Administrators
Machine Learning
PhishML, a unique AI-model trained on phishing emails that all other filters missed
Threat Intelligence
Human-curated threat intel by KnowBe4’s Threat Research Lab
KnowBe4 sees things no one else can. Users report all the attacks that make it through every other filter out there. These in-the-wild threats are the most dangerous, real-time social engineering attacks at any given point in time.

How PhishER Plus Works

PhishER Plus was developed to help you supercharge your organization’s email security defenses and is an additional final layer after your existing SEG and other cybersecurity layers fail.

PhishER Plus enables a critical workstream to help your IR teams work together to mitigate the phishing threat and is suited for any organization that wants to automatically prioritize and manage potentially malicious messages—accurately and fast! PhishER Plus is available as a stand-alone product or as an add-on option for KnowBe4 customers.
