Overall Satisfaction with KnowBe4 Security Awareness Training

We are using KnowBe4 mainly for its simulated Phishing attacks and we love it. This greatly helps our users get familiarized with the common phishing practices that Cybercriminals used to trick people into getting their personal information. This also helps us educate them on what to look for and how you can avoid being a victim of a phishing attack.
  • The simulated phishing email really looks like a real life phishing email.
  • It provides detailed report on your users performance.
  • Offers training that you can assign to your end users.
  • Does not work well with Microsoft ATP (report message add-in).
  • Some features are not available on the basic subscription.
  • Not the cheapest.
  • Our users are more educated and prepared when they receive a real phishing attack.
  • They will be more aware of cybersecurity.
  • This will help with preventing or lessens the chance of being a victim of cyberattacks.
We did not use any alternative and I am not familiar with any alternative.
Fresh training content keeps you updated with all the latest schemes that cybercriminals use. Cyberattacks are getting sophisticated and they are not taking a break. So it's always a good way to keep up with the latest security trends and to be aware of the latest types of attacks that they use.
KnowBe4 has a friendly user interface so it's not difficult to navigate around it. Whenever a user clicks on a simulated phishing email, we will provide appropriate training and resources to help them.
The risk score and the phish-prone percentage. If we can get it down at least 10%, then that means that our efforts are not in vain and our users are learning how to spot a phishing email.
This is going to be well suited for an organization that values cybersecurity and would want to help its users get familiarized with the MO of some cybercriminals. This will also help end-users value their security online, not only at their workplace but also with their personal life. It will be less appropriate for people who don't use their computers or smartphones.
