Xenace launches Phishwise, an interactive training tool to help businesses defend against damaging phishing attacks
Xenace, an Essex and London based provider of managed IT support and cyber security solutions, has officially launched Phishwise – an interactive phishing simulation solution for businesses.
Phishwise has been created to help companies strengthen their defences against today's advanced cyber attacks, such as spear-phishing, ransomware, and business email compromise.
With 90 percent of network security breaches attributed to phishing threats, no business is immune to cyber attacks. Businesses are even more at risk, with over 55% of SMEs have experienced a cyber crime in the past 12 months and 50% reporting a data breach. As widespread breaches continue to threaten businesses worldwide, it’s critical that organisations adopt security measures that use employees to protect critical assets.
"Every company should now ensure they have effective cyber security solutions," said James Collins, director of Phishwise. "And with 72% of all data breaches are related to staff receiving fraudulent emails, phishing attacks are a high priority to protect against. To help businesses strengthen their defences we created Phishwise. This service has been made for enterprises, with the goal of educating employees to be the initial barrier to any attacks that get past email filters.”
Phishwise’s fundamental feature is a phishing simulation, which delivers email campaigns that mimic real-life malicious messages, then provides interactive learning material for any employees that end up falling for the attack. Businesses will be provided with specially tailored reports and all the tools and information necessary to educate employees and thwart any future phishing attacks.
Some key benefits of Phishwise include:
- Engaging Training Material to educate employees on the dangers of phishing emails. Perfect for new and existing employees.
- Full Reporting into the performance of each campaign outlining the key areas of vulnerabilities and recommendations for improvement.
- Customisable Alerts for when a phishing email is opened or links have been clicked. Businesses will also be alerted if employees do not complete the training within a certain time frame.
- Assessment Tracking to measure employee progress and adapt future testing to individual requirements to minimise the risk and better protect your information assets.
With three plans available to choose from, Phishwise is a cost-effective solution for businesses looking to increase their email security and reduce the chance of a phishing-related breach.
