Overall Satisfaction with Hoxhunt Gamified Phishing Training

HoxHunt serves as an entertaining form of training to increase security in email networks.

Pros

  • Engaging
  • Develops personal competitiveness with goals and achievements
  • Clear, intuitive and easy to use
  • Informative

Cons

  • Sometimes points/stars are unclear.
  • Easy to miss some emails and simply ignore/erase them when they are TOO similar to the real thing, and something very commonly used such as "People are looking at your profile on LinkedIn".
  • Looking at leader boards within your own specific team so that it's more fun to compare.
  • Ease of use
  • Interactivity
  • Effective information sharing
  • Not sure since my role doesn't track this.
I haven't used any other training or evaluation given this is not an essential part of my job. Usually, and on my personal email where I don't have any special software, my approach is to delete the message or report it as spam/unsubscribe. However, I am unsure of how that impacts the possibility of reducing phishing or spam emails.

Do you think Hoxhunt delivers good value for the price?

Did Hoxhunt live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Hoxhunt go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Hoxhunt again?

Yes

I think it's well suited for most demographics but especially people with less knowledge regarding phishing or spam, including the distinction between both and how to spot it. It's been particularly helpful as a young person who can easily identify it but pays less attention to taking it seriously and would usually just disregard the message. I think for people working within tech or IT, it might be less relevant given their jobs might be closely tied to topics like this, meaning they would have a clearer understanding of how to handle such situations.
