“While nation-state exploitation, Cybercrime, Hacktivism, Cyber-espionage, Ransomware and malware exploits are all on the rise, KnowBe4 has won both the Editor's Choice Anti-Phishing InfoSec Award for 2019 and the Next Gen Security Training Award from Cyber Defense Magazine.
We’re excited to win these unexpected awards from Cyber Defense Magazine. We work hard to ensure that our security awareness training materials are always fresh and meet the current and future demands of cybersecurity professionals. The editor’s choice award is another real win for us because it shows that the editors recognize the immense value that KnowBe4 brings to the security awareness training and phishing market.
"They won after we reviewed nearly 3,000 infosec companies, globally, because they are an innovator on a mission to help stop breaches and get one step ahead of these threats, proactively,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher, Cyber Defense Magazine.
“With Cybercrime continuing to gain momentum, surpassing global drug crime last year and projected to reach over $1T in theft and damages in 2019, we are proud to see KnowBe4 as an award winning innovator, offering a new-school approach to defeat these criminals,” said Pierlugi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.
