Cofense Makes Protect+ Available for Mid-size Markets

Cofense, a provider of phishing detection and response (PDR) solutions, announced the general availability of Cofense Protect+, an integrated and automated email security solution specifically designed to protect mid-size organizations from cyber threats.

Today’s mid-market organizations face growing attack surfaces and email threats that are increasing in complexity. A recent Cofense report highlighted a 569 percent increase in malicious phishing emails bypassing organizations’ traditional email security controls in 2022.

Coupled with limited resources and ongoing vendor consolidation, organizations in this market may not have the tools needed to provide the insights necessary to understand and identify the evolving email security landscape.

Additionally, these challenges make it difficult for organizations to provide timely and relevant security awareness training programs to help employees spot and report threats.

Protect+ is an automated, all-in-one advanced email security solution that keeps organizations protected from today’s sophisticated email attacks, such as malware and business email compromise (BEC) and incorporates robust security awareness training in one platform.

Protect+ leverages Cofense’s crowdsourced and human vetted intelligence, to deliver enterprise-grade indicators of compromise to help organizations detect and stop advanced email threats missed by traditional security solutions, catching threats before they reach the employees’ inboxes.

The solution allows organizations to consolidate email security and security awareness training without compromising quality through key features including:

  • Fully Automated Platform – Protect+ is an automated and low touch solution that allows organizations to configure it in a matter of minutes and runs with minimal management. Additionally, the platform provides real-time threat protection, relevant simulations and engaging training in one easy easy-to-use platform
  • Real-Time Scanning and Analysis – Protect+ uses Cofense’s crowd-sourced intelligence and inspects emails in real-time to make instantaneous decisions as to whether emails are malicious. Email attacks are detected upon arrival and are moved away from the user’s inbox.
  • Security Awareness Training Based on Real Threats – Powered by Cofense crowd-sourced and human-vetted intelligence, Protect+ delivers simulations and training based on real threats seen by the Cofense Phishing Defense Center (PDC) to ensure employees are trained to spot and report relevant and timely threats.
  • User-Friendly Dashboards – The consolidated easy-to-use dashboards provide value-based reporting to keep management aware of the company’s return-on-investment. The dashboards provide data on protection, including the status of every email scanned and detected, as well as security awareness training with the ability to drill down to more granular individual user information if needed.
