Why PhishMe


We launched PhishMe® because we saw a real opportunity in leveraging the everyday employee in the fight against phishing. After all, it’s the employee being targeted.

Our team developed the PhishMe human-focused phishing defense concept based on dozens of years of experience in penetration testing, social engineering, abuse management, incident response and forensics. It was after analyzing annual assessment model results that we realized the need to engage employees with compelling exercises with dynamic, immersive training to effectively combat phishing attacks.  Thus, our flagship product, PhishMe Simulator, was born.

The company was incorporated in 2011, but the PhishMe service launched publicly in 2008. Today, PhishMe is the leading provider of phishing threat management for organizations concerned about human susceptibility and response to advanced targeted attacks. PhishMe’s intelligence-driven solutions empower employees to be an active line of defense and source of attack intelligence by enabling them to identify, report, and mitigate spear phishing, malware, and drive-by threats. Our phishing incident response platform and phishing threat intelligence enables SOC and IR teams to respond faster to real threats – decreasing the risk of data breaches.

Today, PhishMe serves more than a thousand customers around the world.

More than “Awareness Training”

PhishMe Simulator embraces the concept of learning through doing.  It was never meant to be “computer-based training” like the traditional videos employees have to watch once a month or quarter.  But we often found ourselves in that category – a square peg fitting into a round hole.  But while the market had trouble putting us in a box, they also acknowledge our success.

“PhishMe is the leading provider of anti-phishing CBT and enjoys robust success globally… This capability is supported with flexible and effective analysis and reporting capabilities.”

“The PhishMe brand is well-known throughout the security industry, and the success of its marketing program and technical innovations has established it as the company to beat when it comes to anti-phishing solutions.”

“Clients looking for high-impact anti-phishing behavior management will find PhishMe’s solution to be a good fit with their objectives.”

More than Simulations

The value of PhishMe starts with conditioning employees to recognize and resist clicking on dangerous phishing emails.  But is “not clicking” enough?

PhishMe believes that intelligence is not artificial.  The best information a company can gather– whether it’s customer data or attack intelligence – comes from employees. And, when it comes to phishing–the #1 cause of data breaches–employees are the targets and see email attacks in progress well before incident response teams.

That’s why our solutions focus on harnessing that organization-specific attack intelligence and vet it against known external phishing threats intelligence for a fast, accurate picture of what’s really happening across your organization.

Our customers include the defense industrial base, energy, financial services, healthcare, and manufacturing industries, as well as other Global 1000 entities that understand changing user security behavior will improve security, aid incident response, and reduce the risk of compromise.
