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.

Webroot Endpoint Protection

We have a fair number of non-tech-savvy employees, who might visit dangerous websites or fall victim to phishing scams through e-mail. Most of these employees aren't yet able to discern the difference between legitimate communications and threats, so we had to put in place a very robust tool for screening malware. Webroot Endpoint Protection is generally very aggressive and helps those less-experienced computer users avoid Internet security issues. Still, those same aggressive settings sometimes get in the way of accessing legitimate sites and documents, resulting in some frustration from employees who are more familiar with self-screening methods.

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.

Webroot Endpoint Protection

  • Its footprint is very small. We have not seen performance impacts on the machine, and scans are very fast. The only time there have been issues is when testing for needed exclusions. Once everything is configured, you can't notice it's there unless it alerts for a threat.
  • The installation is quick and doesn't require a reboot. This is very useful, as we don't need to worry about rebooting machines before protection is active. It also installs within 5 minutes at the most. That is not an exaggeration, and it's usually even faster than that.

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.

Webroot Endpoint Protection

  • We experienced problems with getting Webroot Endpoint Protection to be deployed to protect web browsers. Unfortunately, users when opening a web browser will have to for the first time accept the Webroot extension/add-in protection. If staff chooses to not allow the extension/add-in to run, then there would be no web browser protection.
  • Webroot Endpoint Protection seems to take a bit of time to uninstall. The documentation shows a possibility of waiting for up to 24 hours. The uninstallation response time should be immediate when this agent operation/command is selected on the web portal.

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.

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.

I can't assess Webroot Endpoint Protection support directly because, so far, we have not utilized it; our external IT consultant manages the suite, so any communication with Webroot has flowed through them. I have not received any negative feedback from our consultant, nor have they suggested a switch to a different malware protection provider, so I have to assume that support is at least acceptable.

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.

Webroot Endpoint Protection

With Webroot, installation is quick and doesn't require a reboot, definitions are always up-to-date without lengthy definition downloads, and the footprint makes it unnoticeable to clients. This can't be said about the other products I have used. Something would inevitably happen as well to break an Agent and cause unnecessary headaches. No product can be 100% perfect, but we have not run into any of the pitfalls of other products we've used while using Webroot. Nothing has happened to make us want to shop around again for a managed antivirus solution, and we don't foresee this stance changing any time soon.

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.

Webroot Endpoint Protection

  • Webroot Endpoint Protection provides our office with a very affordable method to protect all our servers as well as workstations. There's no distinction with their pricing model, which saves us dollars when it comes to protecting our various computer devices.
  • Our computer consultant right away saw Webroot Endpoint Protection as the solution for us when the competitor Ninja stopped providing the needed anti-virus protection support. This saved us from having to spend more on other programs like Sophos & Symantec.
