    InfoSec IQ training is considered part of the base entry-level security stack we offer and recommend to our customers. InfoSec IQ is great for SMBs that do not have a designated IT staff. We can set up, deploy, and manage employee security awareness training for those customers. And for our larger or CoMIT customers who do have their own IT personnel, the MSP multi-tenant platform allows for customer admins to access the portal and manage their own training as much or as little as they choose.

    Small or large organizations will benefit from using MDE. They need to provide a way to buy MDE as a standalone add-on product not only make it a bundled feature in Microsoft 365 E5. I wish it had the ability to deploy updates to 3rd party apps when the vulnerability scanner discovers a vulnerability. Currently, I have to use a 3rd party tool to address this gap.

    Pros

    Infosec

    • Set it and forget it: Multiple recurring options for campaigns to run automatically.
    • Program assistance: The team at InfoSec creates content intended to meet annual training needs and produces how-to and promotional content to help guide resellers in packaging and deploying.
    • Integrates with O365 and can deploy a button to minimize false alarms from employees when they accurately identify training spam.

    • It is great at proactively monitoring threats across the network. It works seamlessly with the client to monitor individual user computers, and it has a good real-time scanning engine.
    • On the client side, Windows Defender doesn't require a whole lot of system resources to run, nor will it create unnessary slowdowns of a computer, even while scanning for threats

    Cons

    Infosec

    • In our case, being in Mexico, a limit to the type of content we can use is the Spanish translation. Not all resources have this option.
    • You can set dates for your monthly campaigns, but you are unable to set a time for their launch.

    • Virus detection rates are below competitors.
    • Too many notifications that end up bothering.
    • Do not ask every time if you should send reports to Microsoft.

      So far this platform has worked really well for our company. Feedback has been great from our users because training is interesting, interactive and always being updated. Phishing simulations have been extremely helpful for us to stay compliant with ISO requirements and provide insight into areas we need to improve upon to educate our users better and make them more aware of vulnerabilities and threats

      Usability

      Infosec

      It works very good for our company because it is easy to maintain and easy to keep track of people who followed the trainings. We can add and remove people very easily and can keep track of the trainings. Because of this, we are able to chase users that did not follow their training yet and can make sure the company is aware of security risks.

      Infosec

      We've gotten great help when we needed it. When our IT guy left who managed security, we had limited knowledge internally with all of the configuration and implementation. Support helped get us running quickly. They spent an hour or so with the new IT person and they hit the ground running. That was super easy.

      Every time I've had a question or a problem, I was able to get it addressed quickly. Microsoft has a huge database for ATP support, and it has contained 90% of what I have looked for. It was a lifesaver during initial setup.

      Alternatives Considered

      Infosec

      Infosec [IQ] is lightyears ahead of cofense. They did not even have training videos on their platform. The cost for cofense also went up by nearly triple for education. Creating phishing emails was a chore and some things were not possible. Infosec [IQ] has much better templates and creating emails from scratch is a ton easier.

      Defender works better for my org. This may depend on your ecosystem, however for me, Defender is a clear winner. I like Defender's ability to utilize multiple sensors and data points to detect possible breaches. I like the built-in EDR functionality. I do not need to purchase a separate EDR software anymore. I really like the vulnerability management. it has enabled our SOC team to view multiple security-related sensors from a single portal.

      Contract Terms and Pricing Model

      Infosec

      Pricing per user is reasonable for an annual contract. Not a bad investment considering that phishing emails and other threats are popping up daily in our users email accounts. Imagine if they did not know how to identify threats and how to be more careful in clicking links, it would have a been a far more expensive endeavor to recover from a network attack.

      Return on Investment

      Infosec

      • This has improved the culture of phishing awareness from one of embarrassment to a challenge of not getting caught.
      • I owe this more to our own procedures, but there was considerable upkeep in managing users.
      • There was more time in notifying users and managers than I would have liked.

      • There is definitely a piece of mind provided when you know that your system will not get compromised because of malware and viruses.
      • The fact that I don't have to spend money in the first place means that I can spend money on other more important things that do require it.
