Cyber criminals increasingly recognize that small businesses can be lucrative targets because they are able to spend fewer resources on security.
Cofense, Phishing Defense Specialist, launches a new Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) program to provide SMBs with solutions designed to prevent active phishing attacks.
Cofense has partnered with a targeted group of service providers to provide its clients with the dedicated resources needed to strengthen defenses, resilient attacks and, ultimately, stop real attacks.
"Phishing remains the leading cause of security breachs.When mobilizing users to help curb these threats, SMEs can face a significant disadvantage compared to companies with more resources, "says Robert Iannicello, vice president of global channel sales. Cofense. "Our MSSP program will provide small and medium-sized businesses with the tools they need to increase resilience to attack and, most importantly, to report, combat and counter active phishing threats.Our programs will also offer key incentives and pricing designed exclusively for our MSSP: We want to enable more partners and their client organizations to have the resources to counter phishing attacks around the world, regardless of their size and scope. "
Partners will receive hands-on training on performing phishing simulations, ranging from simple to more nuanced scenarios, as well as tips for measuring results and communicating success to employees and management. To help respond quickly and effectively to phishing attacks, MSSPs will be able to use reading books that create repeatable workflows. Thus, responding to recycled attacks will not need to start over.
"Cofense's credibility in anti-phishing advocacy is unmatched and we are excited to be their MSSP partner," added Clinton Smith, CEO of eSecure. "This cost-effective and user-friendly model will be of great value to our customers and we look forward to extending their reach to customers who otherwise would not be able to afford a proper anti-phishing defense program."
