Accenture

Accenture is a giant in the consulting and solutions industry. If you problems which are well suited in technological as well as some other domains, Accenture would give the solution on the basis of the diversified solution portfolio they have. However, if you are in single dimension industry Accenture might prove costly.

KnowBe4

I feel strongly in favor of KnowBe4 platform. Primarily I wanted to use the Phishing tool to prove to my users how Phishing worked. However as I planned the deployment, the pairing of good security training along with a Phishing tool gave me more than I could ever ask for. The training, coming from a former hacker, explained how easily people can get hacked and what is of value. This was just what I needed to get my users to pay attention to this threat. Following up with a tool that helps me keep my users on their toes is perfect. KnowBe4 makes a lot of sense for any organization big or small. In fact the smaller ones may need it more than the bigger organizations. I know small businesses tend to run on tight budgets, but if they can swing it I recommend that they pay attention.
If an organization already has a mature end user training program and has a way to monitor how well their users are performing, as well as up to date security policies, then perhaps it is not needed, but could still be useful for tracking compliance.

  • I would like to have more access to the phishing test data so that I can run reports more easily. I do it now by exporting results to CSV and create the reports from that. Could be easier with better access to the data
  • I would like data on who is clicking the Phish Alert buttons, when they are doing it, and what the email subject lines are, so I can track how effective my users are on REAL phishing
  • The free tools offered to potential new clients should be made freely available to current subscribers without having to fill out the marketing form

Alternatives Considered

Accenture is well ahead of the mentioned consulting products we have seen. The professionalism is top notch. The delivery rate is great. Error rate is very low. Client satisfaction in terms of requirements analysis and solutions integration is great. The communication is well maintained. Scalability issues are also taken care of.

I have felt the leadership of KnowBe4 was ahead in this field and has maintained a lead on others in the field. I find the platform more mature and continuing to grow in content, functionality and overall maturity. With Kevin Mitnick, a former hacker, helping to grow the training content and tools, I find their approach to be better suited to my needs.
