Likelihood to Recommend

KnowBe4 Security Awareness Training

KnowBe4's security training is well suited for any business big or small. Cybersecurity training is something that should be utilized at every company, and this system allows an easy and smooth transition. I don't see a situation or company where it couldn't be utilized. If you already have a program for training, I would still recommend KnowBe4.

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

KnowBe4 Security Awareness Training

  • The quality/difficulty of email testing has improved over the year and is now quite challenging for staff and students.
  • The webinar topics have been informative and helpful, though not always suitable for my timezone.
  • The communication with us as clients has been consistent and of good quality. I do not auto file them without reading them.

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

KnowBe4 Security Awareness Training

  • Integrates with Active Directory but takes a bit of effort to do so correctly. Their support will help with this
  • Phishing campaigns can take a bit of time to setup. Their support will help with this.
  • I wish that training options were easier to setup for motivated learners who want to get more training without requiring additional setup.

Sophos Phish Threat

  • 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.

As I've stated in response to other questions, I've been seriously impressed with how straightforward and yet powerful KnowBe4 is to configure and administer. The phish email templates are superb and the training content is very good. We've been subscribed for over a year now and really are just super happy with it. I'd recommend it to anyone that is seeking a way to test, train and monitor user behavior as it relates to email.

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

When we first got the program the KnowBe4 sales team was on top of our needs. The KnowBe4 reps were there when we needed them for the program setup and are glad to hear from us on any issues. The tech support at KnowBe4 has fast to respond to our needs.

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

KnowBe4 Security Awareness Training

EverFi has reasonable cost-effectiveness. Its popularity in higher education was a major factor in our selection. However, the EverFi Data Privacy and Security training is perhaps the best overall single general training module I have seen due to its realistic scenarios and racial and ethnic diversity of its actors. The SANS Securing the Human Training is my least favorite product.
Bryce Cunningham | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

KnowBe4 Security Awareness Training

  • Our primary objective when first starting with KnowBe4 was after a user inadvertently clicked a link which opened our network and caused a couple days of panic. At that point we took very seriously the risks involved with Not training users, and since then our failure rate has dropped down to nothing.
  • Monthly phishing tests keep our users on their toes and they actually enjoy forwarding me the emails that they've 'caught' as being fake. This tells me that they are aware of the risks and how to spot them.

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.
