Exciting New Features In KnowBe4 Spring 2016 Release

KnowBe4_USB.pngWe have several cool new features in the Spring 2016 release! These features were previously out of reach for IT managers with limited budget, and we're excited you can use them now with our Platinum level subscription. 

The new Spring 2016 advanced features include:

EZXploit™: Patent-pending functionality that allows you to run an internal, fully automated "human pentest". You can launch a simulated phishing attack, which when clicked comes up with a secondary ruse like a Java popup that your user is further social engineered to click on. No malicious action is performed but the process allows you to see which data is accessible by scanning info such as user name, IP address, a user's workstation and Active Directory info.

KnowBe4’s Chief Hacking Officer Kevin Mitnick stated: "EZXploit truly assesses whether your business can be exploited by the bad guys. Just clicking on a link sent in email alone doesn't mean your business can be successfully phished. The true test is to determine whether the user can be exploited. EZXploit allows you to evaluate that risk."

USB Drive Test™: You can now download a special, "beaconized" Microsoft Office file from the KnowBe4 admin console onto a USB drive which you can drop at an on-site, high traffic area. If one of your users picks up the USB drive, plugs it in their workstation, and opens the file, it will "call home" and report the fail which you can see in the console. Should a user also enable the macros in the file, then additional data is also tracked and made available in the admin console. 

A recent study sponsored by University of Illinois, University of Michigan and Google, found 98% picked up dropped USBs and 45% opened or enabled files, confirming this as an effective attack vector for social engineering. More at this blog post

GEO-location was added by KnowBe4 to its phishing templates, allowing you to see where simulated phishing attack failures are on a map, with drilldown capability and CSV-export options. This is highly useful if you have multi-site offices and/or many road-warrior users.

If you are an existing Platinum KnowBe4 customer, go to your console and check out these new features!

if you are not a customer yet, get a demo and see how easy it is to train and phish your employees.
