Simulator Small Business Edition FREMONT, CA: Most of the organizations today muster wrong mechanisms to counter cyber attacks, making it easier for hackers to break into their firewall. "In fact, 38 percent of spear phishing attacks target companies with under 250 employees because, rightly or wrongly, attackers often assume smaller organizations lack the advanced technology of large enterprises,” said Jim Hansen, COO, PhishMe.    

To help such smaller firms, one of the leading provider of human phishing defense solutions, PhishMe Inc., has recently released a scaled version of its flagship offering Simulator—Simulator Small Business Edition (SBE). The newly launched product’s proven and immersive education processes condition the employee security behavior to identify and deflect phishing attacks.

Being a quickly deployable and easy to manage SaaS application, Simulator SBE helps organizations to keep a tab on anomaly behavior and identify key areas of risk through its features such as real-life phishing experiences and immediate education exercises. Simulator SBE’s conditioning content is designed to be fun and engaging. The content also ensures strong adoption rates among end-user and retention of security information.

Additionally, PhishMe has also upgraded its CBFree Modules, which are free premium Computer Based Training (CBT) courses tailored to offers compliant security awareness education.   

Simulator SBE delivers instant learning opportunities for recipients by accurately simulating real-life spar phishing scenarios. Its pre-built templates emulate the latest tactics and techniques used by attackers. Based on threat intelligence feeds, these templates are updated continuously according to the feedback received by PhishMe’s customer base and information collated by its internal research team.
