KnowBe4 Launches PhishER To Improve Email Security
KnowBe4 is looking to make it easier for organizations to analyze and manage phishing alerts in a bid to help improve email security. Security firm KnowBe4 announced its new PhishER offering on Dec. 18, providing organizations with a new way to help analyze and manage suspected phishing emails. PhishER is positioned by KnowBe4 as being a Security Orchestration Automation and Response (SOAR) platform for email security and phishing threats. Phishing is an all too common occurrence where an attacker attempts to lure or "phish" a victim into clicking on a malicious link sent via email. The PhishER technology integrates with KnowBe4's existing Phish Alert Button, which enables users to alert their email administrators if they think they have received a phishing email. "The Phish Alert Button has become extremely popular and if employees are using it, you get a boatload of emails that are potentially suspicious leaving you to analyze hundreds of emails every day," Stu Sjouwerman, CEO of KnowBe4, told eWEEK. "This becomes another problem. PhishER is a huge time saver when it comes to the analysis of potential email threats.  The KnowBe4 platform provides cyber-security training as well as simulation tools to help improve awareness at organizations, which is a growing business. The company announced on Oct. 4 that its year-over-year sales for the third quarter of 2018 nearly doubled. KnowBe4 announced its Virtual Risk Officer (VRO) platform on Oct. 8 providing capabilities that enable organizations to determine cyber-risk.  Sjouwerman said that currently there isn't direct integration between VRO and the new PhishER offering, but that is something that KnowBe4 is thinking about.
