Overall Satisfaction with Cofense Triage

Cofense Triage is used across our entire organization. Any emails that our users believe to be phishing or malicious can be reported using the report phishing toolbar button, and then our security operations center reviews the email in Triage and responds to the user letting them know if it is safe, spam, or malicious. Triage allows users to easily report the emails, and also clusters them together, and provides tools to more quickly analyze the emails to determine if they are malicious. The plugin has some issues and limitations where it is not always available to users, so some users still opt to forward the email to our phishing mailbox instead of using Triage
  • Separating links and attachments contained in the email, and checking to see if they are known malicious.
  • Clustering like emails to save time when responding.
  • Providing risks scores with each cluster to give an estimate on which clusters should be addressed first.
  • plugin regularly disappears from outlook and is not available on all mobile platforms
  • UI updates tend to make the Triage page look nicer at first glance, but have often caused it to be more clunky and harder to use.
  • Lacks some features such as being able to send one off responses to submitted emails instead of just canned responses.
  • Significantly reduced time it takes to review security questions related to emails.

Cofense does a fine job of classifying emails and responding to users. Set up is straightforward, and Triage is easy to use. It does not have the best quarantine features and does not offer as many proactive ways to defend against future attacks as other solutions. Other solutions are cheaper, have better integrations into the email gateway, and offer more features, such as training modules for users that regularly submit safe emails.
