It was most important to me that the KnowBe4 interface be easy to use, both from the aspect of setting up and running the training sessions and phishing campaigns, but also from the end-user's point of view. The training has to be easy to navigate for end-users because that is not their primary task, but is important to how effective they are overall as an employee.

  • Ease of Use
Staff are busy and have to complete other questionnaires, surveys etc. You want to get their attention and keep it so they can complete the training. Since it is easy to use, that is the most important reason for us to use it, so that we ensure the completion of the training for all staff.

I was really interested in finding a platform that was able to eliminate some of the manual work we have to do for our Security Awareness Training programs. While we are not fully automated with KnowBe4, that is due to the way in which new employees are onboarded internally. The user provisioning allows us to stay proactive with user access.

At the time when we looked at different solutions, KB4 was the only one offering AD integration. Also, we liked the offerings of the platform and what it offered us to meet out needs

I would rank the usability for end users as the most important. For CyberSecurity training, you need end users to be engaged. This is not something that they tend to be interested or even care about for the most part. KnowBe4 has certainly made it so our end users are engaged and have taken to the product.

KnowBe4's reputation is stellar, and that made it easier to sell to the Sr. management. The real winner for me was the AD integration, which saved our team a lot of work each quarter in uploading the employee list, and then reporting results specific to the various levels of management.
