The System Really Works

With KnowBe4’s massive database, we analyzed nearly 4 million users over the course of at least 12 months, and our 2020 research continues to uncover alarming results. The overall industry initial Phish-Prone percentage benchmark turned out to be a troubling 37.9%.

Fortunately, the data showed that this 37.9% can be brought down more than half to just 14.1% within 90 days after deploying new-school security awareness training. The results after one year show that by following these best practices, the final Phish-Prone percentage can be minimized to 4.7% on average.

See how your company’s Phish-Prone percentage compares to your peers! The Industry Benchmarking feature is included with your subscription.

Leverage the User Event API to push custom security-related events from your third-party platforms (like Mimecast or Splunk) to the KnowBe4 Console, influencing your users’ risk scores accordingly.
  • PhishER
    As you phish and train your users they will start reporting potentially dangerous emails to your incident response team. The increase of this email traffic… can present a new problem! PhishER, is an optional add-on for managing the high volume of messages reported by your users and helps you identify and respond to email threats faster.
