PhishMe (Now Cofense) Wins Five Cybersecurity Awards

PhishMe has collected five 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards for its phishing defense solutions.

The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards program is produced by Cybersecurity Insiders in partnership with the Information Security Community on LinkedIn. The awards program recognizes excellence in the field of cybersecurity with awards being given to companies that have demonstrated excellence, leadership, and innovation in information security. This year there were more than 400 entries across 70 different categories.

The awards winners were selected based on the strength of their nominations and members of the Information Security Community are required to vote for their best loved products and services. The finalists for the awards were announced on February 1 and the winners on February 7.

To even be named as a finalist confirms that a company has developed exceptional products and services that help businesses protect their networks and data against cyberattacks. Cybersecurity Insiders notes that “All winners and finalists reflect the very best in today’s cybersecurity industry.”

PhishMe was named as a finalist in five categories of the Cybersecurity Product Awards and a finalist in one category of the Cybersecurity Professional Awards. PhishMe collected four awards for its products and one for its staff.

PhishMe was a Gold Winner for PhishMe Triage in the Incident Response category, while PhishMe Simulator/PhishMe Reporter received a joint Gold Award in the Security Education Platform category. PhishMe CBFree was given a Silver Award in the Security Education category, while PhishMe Intelligence was given a Bronze Award in the Threat Detection, Intelligence, and Response category.

A Cybersecurity Professional Silver Award was given for PhishMe Customer Support (North America) in the Cybersecurity Team of the Year category.

“We are honored that the Cybersecurity Excellence Award team recognized the value of our teams, services and solutions, which help organizations focus on an often-missing piece of the security puzzle – the human element,” said Rohyt Belani, co-founder and CEO of PhishMe (Cofense). “Our platform allows more Fortune 500s and government agencies than any other to empower employees to recognize and report phishing attacks, while enabling incident response teams to quickly analyze these threats in real time.”
