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.

Sophos Phish Threat

If you're already using Sophos products, Phish Threat is a great addition to what you're already using. Because it's available under the same single pane of glass as most other Sophos things and can be added for a nominal cost to existing Sophos services, it's a great add-on. There are better single solution products out there, but those can cost more and/or they have to be serviced under a different logon and website.

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.

Sophos Phish Threat

  • Great templates for the setup of phish threats.
  • The overview is simple.
  • Easy to set up and use with other Sophos products.
  • The training and awareness videos and tutorials are spot on.

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.

  • I wish I could mark manually that someone passed the training that way if a big group gets caught we can sit down and use our training class for the users.

It is easy to use and setup. You can schedule the Phish email test to be
sent out in the future or right away. You can also send to all users in
your list as well as stagger so all users do not get the email at the
same time and tell each other there is a test going on

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.

Support is solid but not spectacular. While I haven't used support for Phish Threat specifically, this is a general rating for Sophos' support across the board. It could be easier to find the FAQ or other information I need, but when I've needed to reach out to support they've been good to work with.

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.

Sophos Phish Threat

We already use some of the other products in the Sophos Suite, so it was natural to test it and implement it directly in our Sophos Central admin center. So we never checked other products, as we, in general, are happy with Sophos.

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%.

Sophos Phish Threat

  • Users are more aware of and react better to phishing emails.
  • We know who is the most gullible or susceptible to phishing campaigns.
