PhishMe Announces Formal Channel Program, Releases Channel-Exclusive Human Phishing Defense Solution for SMBs

Trusted Leader in Phishing Defense Expands Offerings to Global Customers Through Expanded Distribution Channels and New Product Offering

LEESBURG, VA and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 3, 2016) - PhishMe® Inc., the leading provider of human phishing defense solutions, today unveiled during RSA 2016 the PhishMe Channel Alliance, a formalized channel distribution program designed to bring premier PhishMe security solutions to the global market. Following PhishMe's record-breaking 892 percent growth over the last three years, the company is kicking off its global channel efforts by releasing a new solution available exclusively through the channel and made specifically for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

The PhishMe Channel Alliance was designed to promote strong partnerships with global resellers that have deep penetration into both small and medium businesses and larger enterprises. PhishMe recently on-boarded two of the largest North American technology resellers into the Channel Alliance in addition to several other notable Value Added Resellers (VARs).

Partners are fully supported via a robust, web-based partner portal, have access to attractive sales discounts and will work closely with PhishMe's dedicated teams to ensure the company's high standards of service are maintained. Channel partners can also take advantage of PhishMe's various technology integrations to build comprehensive security programs tailored to their customers' needs.

To further demonstrate the company's commitment to the channel, PhishMe has launched a channel-exclusive offering, Simulator Small Business Edition, a scaled version of its market-leading flagship Simulator solution. According to the 2015 Symantec Intelligence Report, 38 percent of spear phishing attacks target businesses with a head count of 250 employees and under, as SMBs prove to be low hanging fruit for malicious actors in comparison to the enterprise. For the first time, this market segment can take advantage of PhishMe's enterprise-class phishing defense technology.

"In 2015, eight out of 10 companies experienced a security breach and 90 percent of these are the result of a spear phishing attack," said Jim Hansen, COO of PhishMe. "Organizations are always looking for the mythical silver bullet to solve all of their security woes, and security vendors are increasingly pointing to technology as the answer, ignoring the importance of the human element. Through the Channel Alliance and the SBE offering, we will be able to assist an even wider range of organizations around the world with a proven solution that turns humans into powerful security assets."

Simulator SBE comes equipped with key features such as templates that mimic attackers' tactics, education experiences that condition employees and reporting that identifies keys areas of risk. Conditioning content featured in Simulator SBE is created to be fun and engaging, ensuring strong adoption rates among end-users as well as retention of security information. Customers can take advantage of built-in reporting modules to identify key areas of risk, as well as improve auditing and compliance needs with free access to premium Computer Based Training (CBT) courses. Recent studies have shown that organizations leveraging Simulator technology have seen a 95 percent reduction in susceptibility of phishing attacks, transforming areas of potential risk into a strong line of defense against malware.

"Employees are the number one attack target because they're often the easiest entry point into a network, especially in small and mid-sized businesses," notes Scott Gréaux, VP of product management at PhishMe. "Simulator SBE gives those organizations access to enterprise-class training technology without breaking their budgets, so they can effectively condition their staff and fortify their phishing defense like never before."
