Cofense PhishMe

Cofense PhishMe sure is a good solution for a global company. For a smaller locally-operated company, you may do well with an internal solution to send simulated emails and collect user feedback, but you'll have to operate it, maintain it, come up with email designs, etc. Cofense already has plenty of emails available and in multiple languages what saves a lot of time. You can also use their benchmarks to compare to their customer base or your industry as well as information (knowledge and experience) they have from other customers.

FireMon

I would strongly recommend FireMon for any IT/Security department that must maintain and support multiple firewall platforms. FireMon's ability to create a unified interface to view, audit, and even implement rules in a vendor-agnostic manner is excellent.If PCI audits are an issue, and providing firewall reports for PCI is difficult, this is something FireMon solves immediately out of the box.If a business is entirely using a single firewall platform, FireMon still provides benefits, but the recommendation would not be quite as strong depending on the capabilities of the native management platform.

Pros

Cofense PhishMe

  • PhishMe scenarios are based on real-world examples of malicious email reported through one of their other product offerings; Phishing Defense Center (PDC)
  • Scenarios have the ability to be easily customized and changed to suit the needs of your own organization to make them more relevant. This increases the chance of a click or attachment opening providing a teachable moment with more users.
  • Console is easy to navigate and use for all levels of technical ability. Not everyone on our team is technically inclined, however, the interface is easy to understand and obtain information from allowing everyone who uses it to be comfortable.
  • Reporting capabilities from completed scenarios is quite good as long as you provide the detail on users during initial import or sync.

FireMon

  • FireMon provides a live view in to firewalls across the enterprise in a single tool.
  • Policy Planner is customizable, and can be fit to your company's workflow requirements, to include API for Service Now.
  • FireMon provides policy testing capability, and traffic flow analysis, which is critical for timely troubleshooting.

Cons

Cofense PhishMe

  • Does not integrate with Active Directory. You either have to upload a spreadsheet of users or utilize their recipient generator. Would be nice to have an API with AD.
  • Doesn't allow us to spoof legitimate companies. The bad actors do this and other phishing platforms allow this as well. Cofense is legally scared to allow spoofing.

FireMon

  • When they moved from version 7 to version 8 there were some areas that seemed neglected. The generated reports did not always render properly when viewed as a PDF, though they looked fine in HTML. Another lost function was reporting usage on NAT rules in firewalls.
  • The scheduling function for reports/assessments is not the easiest thing to find or administer. It would be nice to be able to schedule reports directly from the Security Manager without having to go to Administration.
  • I would like to see customizable reports. Right now you must create custom controls and add them to custom assessments.
  • The GUI does not always maintain your filters or settings if you drill down into an object and then return.
  • There are not always enough search filter options and they are sometimes hard to view.
  • Some reports are not very useful. It would be nice to see those re-evaluated or re-worked into a usable report.

For the most part, using the tool is straight forward. Some of the menus could use some work on usability.

They are very quick to respond. They solve about 80% of our issues. Not really a good rating for their support. Would love to see them solve 100% of our tickets.

FireMon technical support is awesome! They respond quickly to our requests and they are well trained and very knowledgeable about the tool. Some issues have to be referred to the development team, but technical support largely provides solutions for any issues that we may have.

Implementation is fairly simple. Most issues can be resolved by referencing manuals.

Alternatives Considered

Cofense PhishMe

We haven't used another provider. However, we used our internal phishing simulation solution prior to contracting Cofense. The internal solution gives you more flexibility (you can send emails to any domain and can impersonate any company) but you'd be missing the Reporter button, professional service, multilingual material, comparison to and lessons learned from other customers, benchmarks, email templates.

FireMon

We were impressed with FireMon's native cloud support and compliance reporting, in looking at other vendors we were not too impressed by their ability to support cloud-native technologies and their reporting was less than stellar. We did not want a solution that would last only a few years and FireMon was able to provide us with what we needed, and we felt comfortable that they would support the direction we were going. By far they were they were the most engaged with the vetting process.

As a security professional let me first acknowledge that I know better than to say or document much in a public forum. That being said I have recently had reasons to sit down and future proof our current implementation. We're as virtual as virtual can be - if we acquired 300% of our current device load tomorrow responding to that need (aside from licensing) would just be a matter of spinning up more VM's in house, and cutting the appropriate tickets for where syslog info gets sent.

Return on Investment

Cofense PhishMe

  • Reduced click rate on phishing campaigns from 40% to below 10% in a few months.
  • Increased phishing reporting by over 400%.

FireMon

  • Positive - flexibility and use of the product. This enables non-firewall savvy people to gather enough information to make an intelligent, firewall policy request. Automation of reporting frees up a ton of resources by sending the appropriate information to the different teams. Compliance is a huge benefactor of these reports, as we are in one form of an audit every other month
  • Negative - High price tag. Difficult Licensing model. Scalability and stability has been a problem for us. Integration to our ticketing system will cost to much, so this is still an area that I would like to integrate some day.
