Smarttech247 Extends Security Portfolio to Bring Cofense Anti-Phishing Solutions to Europe [Press Release]

Cork, Ireland – September 4, 2019: Smarttech247,  a multi-award winning managed security services organisation today announced its participation in the Cofense™ Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) program. The mutually beneficial MSSP program complements Smarttech247’s expertise and managed IT services and will enable more organisations who might not otherwise have the internal resources to sustain a successful phishing defence program to efficiently address the top cause of security breaches.

Cofense is the only phishing defense solution proven to stop active phishing attacks in their tracks by harnessing the power of human intelligence and intuition. Through this partnership, Smarttech247 will receive hands-on training from Cofense to help customers identify the right cadence of phishing simulations, from basic to more nuanced scenarios, along with tips for measuring results and communicating success to employees. To help respond to phishing attacks quickly and efficiently, Smarttech247 will also be able to leverage Cofense playbooks that create repeatable workflows.

Key Cofense MSSP services include:

  • Cofense PhishMe™ – Designed to develop defensive instinct and behavior by conditioning employees with real life phishing attack scenarios
  • Cofense Reporter™ – A simple plug-in for Microsoft Outlook and Google Enterprise Email that enables end users to report suspicious emails with one click
  • Cofense Triage™ – An integrated solution that stops attacks in progress by automating the collection, analysis, and orchestrating the response to phishing attacks
  • Cofense Intelligence™ – Relevant and timely threats verified by human analysts and delivered as actionable, phishing-specific threat intelligence
  • Cofense LMS™ – the bridge between employee education and conditioning, Cofense LMS is a fully-functional Learning Management System to help administrators to manage content and ongoing education

MSSPs have turned to Cofense as the premier phishing defense partner because Cofense helps reduce organizations’ #1 security problem – phishing attacks – which is still the most common way for breaches to begin. What’s more, Cofense offers partners 12 free months of professional services to help launch and refine their phishing defense program. Additionally, Cofense offers Board Reports to help our partners quantify success to their customers. Board Reports enables a board of directors and senior leadership to see progress in the fight against phishing. Finally, Cofense makes it easy with automated playbooks to save time in program management and predictable monthly billing to prevent unpleasant surprises.

“In today’s threat landscape, robust cyber defences are critical, and businesses must ensure they’re protected before their name features next on the hacker target list.  We are delighted to partner with Cofense and extend our portfolio which will help our customers around the world to respond to phishing attacks quickly and efficiently.” says Raluca Saceanu, Director of Strategy at Smarttech247.

“We are pleased to be working with Smarttech247 as part of our elite group of service providers that are enabling more organisations with the resources needed to thwart phishing attacks across the globe, regardless of company size and scope,” said Robert Iannicello, VP of Global Channel Sales at Cofense. “Together, we will empower users to proactively report suspicious emails in their inboxes and generate a stream of intelligence that gives their organization a clear edge on stopping phishing attacks in progress.”
