In case you missed it in December, we released PhishER, a new product that’s a huge time-saver for your Incident Response team. It's surprisingly affordable. 

PhishER helps you with two things:

  1. Cut through the Incident Response inbox noise from user-reported emails and respond to the most dangerous threats more quickly
  2. Quickly process the emails that were reported as suspicious but are actually legitimate and need to be handled by that employee

Product Demo Webinar
Take 30 minutes and watch the new product demo. See how much time you can save every day:

Check out the no-charge Phish Alert Button mentioned in the webinar...
Do your users know what to do when they receive a suspicious email? Should they call the help desk, or forward it? Should they forward to IT including all headers? Delete and not report it, forfeiting a possible early warning?

KnowBe4’s no-charge—yes, you read that right—Phish Alert button gives your users a safe way to forward email threats to the security team for analysis and deletes the email from the user's inbox to prevent future exposure. All with just one click!

KnowBe4’s Password Exposure Test (PET) is a brand-new and complimentary IT security tool that allows you to run an in-depth analysis of your organization’s hidden exposure risk associated with your users. PET

PET makes it easy for you to identify users with exposed emails publicly available on the web, and checks your Active Directory to see if they are using weak or compromised passwords that are part of a known data breach. PET then reports on any user accounts affected so you can take action immediately!

With Password Exposure Test you can:

  • Search and identify any of your users with exposed emails, account information, or passwords available on the web
  • Quickly isolate password security vulnerabilities and easily identify high risk passwords being reused within your organization
  • Generate a detailed report on user accounts affected.  You can download the summary report as a PDF or Excel file directly within the tool

Get your results in a few minutes! You are probably not going to like what you see.
