Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "I don't know the cost, but I believe we are paying yearly. We did like a three-year or five-year contract. I am not aware of any extra costs in addition to a standard licensing fee."
  • "Licensing is paid on a yearly basis. You can go to the official site to check their approximate pricing. It's based on the number of users or staff. It can vary from country to country, but for Ukraine, it works as it's stated on the site."

    Overview

    With more than 90% of breaches attributed to successful phishing campaigns, it’s easy for organizations to point to the everyday employee as the root cause – as the problem to be solved. We disagree.  PhishMe believes employees –  humans – should be empowered as part of the solution to help strengthen defenses and gather real-time attack intelligence to stop attacks in progress.

    Old school Security Awareness Training is static. It’s a one-time event without follow-up. KnowBe4's Kevin Mitnick Security Awareness Training starts with a baseline test to show the actual Phish-prone percentage of your users. Then it steps users through effective, interactive, on-demand browser-based training. As step three, you send frequent simulated phishing attacks to your employees to reinforce the training. This last feature, frequent simulated phishing attacks (we recommend at the very least once a month) really creates a change in behavior.
