Overall Satisfaction with Cofense PhishMe

We are using PhishMe as a phishing simulator to help train our users on how to detect and report phishing scams/emails. We are seeing more and more audits from potential clients as well as partners that ask if we conduct phishing campaigns against our own users. Using PhishMe allows us to check this box.
  • Setting up campaigns is easy.
  • There are lots of examples that can be built from.
  • The training if a user falls for the phishing is well thought out and presented.
  • Account management could be done better. Removing users is a good example.
  • User awareness about fraudulent emails has overall gone up.
We chose PhishMe due to its ease of use and integration. The many different scenarios available and the price point were the main selling points vs the competitors.
We find that doing our phishing emails a couple of times a year works best and makes sure our users don't get too used to the campaigns. In the past, we used computer based training materials that came for free with our subscription. This was a nice add on and worked well with our LMS systems built on top of SharePoint.
