KnowBe4 Announces Competitive Buyout to Combat Ineffective Phishing Training Tools

Security Awareness Training Reporting(Tampa Bay, FL) Nov 7, 2018 -- KnowBe4 is the world's largest new-school security awareness training company with over 21,000 customers.

In an aggressive move, KnowBe4 announced a unique competitive buyout special for those organizations stuck in a contract with an ineffective awareness training company and who are not getting results from their existing anti-phishing efforts.

KnowBe4 is offering organizations its new-school Security Awareness Training—which includes unlimited simulated phishing emails—at a discount of up to 50% off list price of any KnowBe4 subscription levels to match or beat a competitor's pricing. KnowBe4 also adds free subscription months to buy-out the remaining old-school program.

Stu Sjouwerman, CEO of KnowBe4 stated, “If you’re not seeing your end-user's Phish-prone percentage go down, it is time for a change. Otherwise, you are exposing your corporate crown jewels data to unnecessary risk. IT pros know the weakest link in IT security is the end user, but not everyone has effective security awareness training in place to manage the ongoing problem of social engineering. We have been getting numerous reports from customers of our competitors—who claim they have a great phishing assessment tool—but the customer is not seeing any improvements in the Phish-prone percentage of their employees.”

KnowBe4 is offering to absorb current contracts up to a year (adding the remaining time left onto a new contract) and is offering up to fifty percent off any KnowBe4's Security Awareness Training and Simulated Phishing Platform subscription levels, making it easy for any organization to switch.

As phishing and social engineering tactics become increasingly sophisticated and difficult to detect, Sjouwerman emphasizes the extreme importance of first educating employees to recognize social engineering threats, and second reinforce that training with once-a month simulated phishing attacks to keep users on their toes with security top of mind.

Cybercriminals are constantly creating cunning new ways to trick users into actions that are against the interest of their organization. Just look at the sophisticated 12-billion CEO Fraud—The FBI call this Business Email Compromise—over the last 3 years. We are constantly updating our training and phishing templates to reflect the latest tactics and we get measurable results.

KnowBe4's platform is the most powerful available, was built for IT Pros that have 16 fires to put out, is easy to use, and recently released very strong features like the Virtual Risk Officer and machine-learning based Advanced Reporting. Additional to that, KnowBe4 has the world's largest library of awareness training content. 

As of October 31, 2018, KnowBe4 has: 

  • 765 pieces of education and training content
  • 178 Interactive Training Modules 
  • 161 Video Modules 
  • 260 Posters and Artwork
  • 146 Newsletters and Security Docs
  • 20 Games
  • Over 2,500 phishing templates
