Avatao

Great functionalities with a full approach to different programming languages along with features to making changes to the code to make it successful and amazing. Have been using it for a long time and satisfied with their services a lot. Some functionalities need some changes otherwise it is a great platform. I recommend this tool to others businesses.

Cofense PhishMe

It's a very apt tool for the scenario where there are multiple users and verticals in an organisation. Phishing Campaigns and recording their response actions is quite easier through this tool. Not suitable for a small organization (less than 500) that can maybe use some open tools or self-made emails for campaigns.

Pros

Avatao

  • Interactive tutorials that make learning feel effortless and fun.
  • Wide range of topics covered.
  • Challenges are sufficently difficult and therefore exciting to solve.
  • If you get stuck, asking for help is easy and you are provided with just enough information to get going again.

Cofense PhishMe

  • It gives clear-cut segregation of different parts of an email, header, text and HTML body, URL, attachments, HTML preview and some analytical insight like "similar reports." This distinctive approach actually helps reduce data overload during an analysis.
  • The URLs captured here pass through an automatic reputation check [in our case VirusTotal] and add a tag of the reputation. If it is a well-known bad URL the tag helps us take the decision fast.
  • For creating automation rules on the reported emails the "Recipes" section is really helpful. We can create easy recipes [or rules ] to handle a huge flow of reports and also we can create more sophisticated rules depending on the Cyber intelligence feed to catch the really bad currently less known attack attempts by malicious emails.
  • The "Threat Indicators" section is also useful to use as a threat intelligence source to check the URLs for their maliciousness.

Cons

Avatao

  • [I feel] it needs to be more functional while integrating with other platforms. Not the biggest drawback but there is a need to add more languages to it like PHP, Go, and Scala which is also very much developed and used in the organization.
  • [I believe] the support team needs to be more active and responsive while dealing with the customers.

Cofense PhishMe

  • Completely switching to the new UI - Most is redesigned, but some old elements remain
  • Ability to spoof known brands - limited in scope now and you are not allowed to use fully "convincing" campaigns that we are seeing in the wild
  • Ability to own and manage own domains - right now adding a new company domain requires a ticket, allow us to add/verify ourselves

Its built with UX in mind and is aimed at non-tech people, to ensure that almost everyone can run the campaign. But if we go deeper - sometimes you will need an HTML editor or support in order to figure out some advanced edits you might want to add in your scenarios.

I have not had to use their support for pretty much anything. The software works well, and is very intuitive. I would imagine their support would be rather basic as there is not too much that can go wrong with a report phishing button, and if it were I would probably consider a different software.

It's a must, even if you are never going to use the tool. Cofense aims to provide phishing training first and tool second.

There are some hiccups, but there are meant to be, when you implement something in a large scale enterprise.

Alternatives Considered

Avatao

Avatao is playing a great role in providing fantastic services. The great feature that I like the most in Avatao that it does not support only one programming language, it ranges its security protocols from various programming languages like Python, java, C#, and C++. Avatao bot is also very helpful in simple operation as when you get stuck somewhere the bot can actually help and make you out of that easily.

Cofense was selected as a vendor before I was in this role. Another vendor was evaluated for additional security awareness training but not to replace the Cofense PhishMe program. We also looked at Ninjio to supplement our phishing education program.

Return on Investment

Avatao

  • Using the platform for us was a first step in teaching secure code best practices on a large scale.
  • Implementing training increases overall security within the company.
  • Our security culture evolves by doing trainings on a regular basis.

Cofense PhishMe

  • Recipes in the system are capable of handling almost 2x what an analyst does, which cuts down the efforts [of] an analyst and provides more time for accurate strategies.
  • With roughly 90% false positives coming through, the remaining 10% of true positives need as much attention as they can get for the full investigation and analysis.
  • 1,500 or more phishing messages can come through in a given week and the amount of time/employees required to review this without a tool like Cofense is surely beyond [the] expected/anticipated budget.
