In 2008, PhishMe was launched and fulfilled our vision of leveraging the everyday employee in the fight against phishing. After all, it’s the employee being targeted. Fast forward to today and we now have a full suite of phishing defense solutions and a new name that represents our focus on building an organization-wide collaborative, collective defense. Cofense™.
Cofense combines market-leading incident-response technologies with employee-sourced attack intelligence for a complete collective defense against email-based cyber-attacks. With Cofense, you can disrupt attacks at delivery and stay ahead of breaches. Imagine a time when every user becomes an instinctual node on the network, feeding actionable intelligence to security teams. Where technology and users alike work together, creating a cycle of unparalleled vigilance and response. And where unmatched human aptitude meets the speed of technology to find and eliminate threats.
This is the new state of collective defense – cyber security purpose-built to crash test every email. Designed to anticipate and disrupt the attack kill chain at delivery, triggering enterprise-wide detection and security automation.
Defending Your Network Against Phishing Threats
What do you do when (not if) you’re under a phishing attack?
No matter how much organizations invest in “next-gen” email gateways, malicious emails make it into users’ inboxes. Awareness programs are a key part of your defense, but what happens when users see a suspicious email? What do they do with it? Where does it go? And what happens next?
Your Security Operations Center (SOC) team is bombarded with alerts from all of the tools you use to defend your network. Now they have an “abuse box” filled with potentially malicious emails. How do they sift through the noise to find the threat and how do they coordinate across all of the SOC?
With Cofense Vision, your incident responders can search across all emails your organization receives and find every malicious email – not just reported ones. No waiting on the email team—with a simple click you can quarantine emails are quarantined in your Microsoft Exchange or Office 365 servers.
Your incident response playbook relies on diverse teams. Your firewall team might need to block a bad URL, the helpdesk might need to re-image a workstation, or a user’s credentials might need to be reset. Cofense Triage can help orchestrate your response by notifying all downstream teams and recommending actions.
Knowing what to look for is half the battle. Cofense Intelligence publishes phishing-specific threat intelligence on threats as we uncover them. You get high fidelity, human-vetted intelligence, including Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) to help you stay ahead of trouble.
Build A Phishing Defense To Fit Your Needs And Budget
Threats are growing. Your budget isn’t.
Small businesses are big targets for cyber-criminals. But how do you defend your network on a limited budget and with limited staff?
Large corporate victims of cyber-attacks eventually bounce back. For small or medium-sized businesses, that’s easier said than done. With threat actors constantly changing strategies and techniques, you need a phishing defense that stops attacks without draining your coffers.
Cofense PhishMe Free is a free phishing simulation service for companies with up to 500 employees. It deploys quickly and lets you run monthly phishing scenarios, with videos, infographics, and CBTs to educate employees. Detailed analytics let you track and communicate success.
Your business is a big enough target to need a robust awareness program. But you still need to be budget-conscious. How do you strike the right balance? You want the ability to run simulations whenever and however you like, reflecting the real attacks your network constantly faces. How can a growing but frugal business get adequate awareness training?
Cofense PhishMe Small Business Edition (SBE) is perfect for growing companies. Run unlimited phishing scenarios all year long to train employees to resist all types of phishing lures. Use advanced analytics to track employees’ behavior and demonstrate program progress to your corporate leadership.

Keep In Front Of Threats. Know What To Look For.
Threat Intelligence to Stay One Step Ahead
Let’s face it, the bad guys are smart. They do their research and reconnaissance to find holes in your security. Yes, email gateways and other solutions can help, but ever-evolving phishing emails still get through. You need to be proactive to stay in front of threats. How do you know what to look for and what to prioritize?
To help you keep in front of emerging phishing threats, Cofense IntelligenceTM is the leading source of human-verified intel focused on phishing attacks. Our global team collects millions of phishing emails a day. They dissect, analyze, and prioritize the dangers. Once a threat is analyzed, we publish the Indicators of Compromise, on the same day, so you can remain focused as your protect your network.
Via a RESTful API, Cofense integrates with top SIEMs, TIPs, and SOAR applications: Splunk, Palo Alto Networks, ThreatConnect, Recorded Future, and many others. When a threat is detected, your SOC can open a playbook and assign the right person to take the right actions. You can open our machine-readable threat intelligence (MRTI) in STIX, JSON, and CEF formats.
Lowering The Risks Of Real Phishing Threats For Your Organization
Take security awareness beyond a “check box”
It’s well known that most breaches begin as phishing emails. But no matter how many times you caution employees, someone still clicks. And even when employees think emails are suspicious, they may not have the right tools to report them to your SOC. If your security compliance training is just meant to check a box, you’re not lowering the risks of real phishing threats.
Since email gateways aren’t fully effective in stopping phishing emails, you need to condition employees to resist them. Cofense PhishMe™ does this by simulating phishing scenarios. Employees learn to detect all types of phishing threats, from basic scenarios to more nuanced tactics, and reduce susceptibility by up to 95%.
Security awareness must evolve beyond annual training. After all, your adversaries are dynamic, creative humans. Continuously trained employees don’t just check a box—they provide front-line human intelligence to your security teams. In addition to Cofense PhishMe’s immersive approach to training, we offer FREE CBTs to help you stay compliant.
During a phishing attack, early detection matters. It’s crucial to give employees a simple tool to report phishing. By streamlining the process—one click is all it takes—Cofense Reporter™ turns employees into a layer of phishing defense. They click on a button, the email leaves their inbox, and your security team investigates further.
Stay Compliant And Help Prevent Breaches
Take Compliance Beyond “Checking a Box”
When organizations manage personal and sensitive data, they need to comply with regulations. Computer-based tests (CBTs) are useful, but they won’t prevent breaches—they don’t expose and educate users to real-world threats. Moreover, to stay on top of evolving compliance requirements you need continually refreshed CBT content, which means extra work for busy compliance teams.
To make sure you’re not just checking boxes, Cofense delivers more. Besides FREE compliance-mandated CBT modules—on GDPR, healthcare compliance, payment data compliance, and more—Cofense PhishMe offers training based on phishing simulations. It’s valuable exposure to real-world phishing threats.
Owing to new and updated requirements, compliance standards continually evolve. If your existing training is not updated, you could run into trouble. Not educating employees with the latest information opens you up to risk and compliance-related fines.
