Cons
CyberHoot
  • I'd like to see the feedback change a little when I get a question wrong on the test. It can be a little confusing, but certainly not a game-changer.

  • It should be easier to follow up with a user when they haven't completed training.
  • More options for reporting would be nice.
  • Better choice of users as all emails have been imported (aliases, dist. list. etc) taking up licenses.

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

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
CyberHoot
I enjoyed the cybersecurity training provided by CyberHoot and felt that it had a lot to offer. Cybersecurity professionals, as well as non-cyber security professionals, would both benefit from the content. I've personally utilized several different platforms for security awareness training and feel that the content, presentation, videos, and gamification help CyberHoot to edge out the competition.
