Cofense Protect MSP offers a unified offering that includes cloud native AI-based email attack protection and employee training through PhishMe threat simulations
LEESBURG, Virginia, July 19, 2021– (COMMERCIAL THREAD) –Cofense®, the leading provider of phishing detection and response (PDR) solutions, today launched Cofense Protect MSP, a phishing protection solution designed for Managed Service Providers (MSPs) responsible for protecting small and medium businesses (SMBs) against phishing attacks. With 96% of all cyber attacks starting with phishing, and 1.5 million phishing websites created each month, MSPs need a solution that is easy to deploy, requires no ongoing maintenance, offers monthly billing, provides reliable service. single interface for training and protection technology, and is designed with multi-tenant functionality – this is Cofense Protect MSP.
Cofense Protect MSP combines Computer Vision (a field of artificial intelligence) that simulates the way humans see, with Cofense PhishMe’s real-world simulation training. Last year alone, our Computer Vision technology analyzed over 180 million emails and over 545 million URLs, providing real-time threat intelligence on what had bypassed secure email gateways. (SEG) and neutralized these threats. Cofense PhishMe, the phishing simulation technology used by a quarter of the Fortune 1000 companies, is integrated into the same user interface and will allow Cofense MSP partners to simulate the latest known threats to bypass SEGs and allow their customers’ employees to ‘be more resilient.
“We know that current SEGs built on legacy architectures continue to fail phishing attacks every day, they are expensive and are not designed to easily deploy in cloud environments. We can help MSPs reduce the number of email security vendor solutions for their customers while reducing risk and costs. Cofense Protect MSP was designed for and already protects hundreds of MSPs and their customers of varying sizes, all activated with a click in less than a minute, ”said Rohyt Belani, co-founder and CEO of Cofense. “And by integrating the intelligence of over 30 million Cofense customers worldwide reporting suspected phishing cases into a perpetual feedback loop, all of Cofense’s phishing detection and response products continue to get smarter and faster. . The icing on the cake, so to speak, is that the offering also includes industry-leading training and awareness. “
According to Gartner, “Artificial intelligence (AI) methods and techniques are embedded in the products of many segments of the security market, potentially making this technology, overall, the most significant impact on the development of detection of attacks for the next five to eight years. Impact of AI technology on attack detection products will be felt in waves over the next eight years: network, modeling, anomalies, and phishing (in that order)1. “
Gartner further states that “innovative product leaders are addressing these challenges by introducing AI models that focus on detection potential security threats earlier with a larger precision and give security analysts the means to prioritize those data faster to reduce risk with high business value results. The key to this is: “Machine learning (ML) models turn the challenge of overwhelming data volumes into an asset as they have a voracious appetite for data.” The more you “feed” them with quality data, the more precise and “intelligent” their analysis becomes over time. An alternative to traditional fixed rule sets, ML-based systems learn and improve and become more efficient over time2. “
“Cofense is particularly proud to launch Cofense Protect MSP as a new service offering for MSPs,” said Rob Iannicello, VP, Worldwide Channel and Alliances, Cofense. “Organizations want phishing simulations delivered as part of a phishing defense as a service solution at a reasonable price. Cofense Protect MSP also provides – and perhaps most importantly – phishing protection for MSPs themselves free of charge as part of our “Protect Your Home” program. We look forward to working with our MSP partners to earn great margins, add new revenue streams, incorporate monthly billing options and ‘set and forget’ deployments to protect their customers from phishing attacks. “
Through the acquisition of Cyberfish and the integration of Computer Vision technology, Cofense eliminates the need for legacy messaging security solutions and stand-alone security awareness offerings.
