SC Magazine Awards Recognize PhishMe as Finalist in Best IT Security-Related Training Platform Category

Judging Panel Recognizes Company's Value in Reducing Phishing Susceptibility Rates for Top Companies

LEESBURG, VA--(Marketwired - Dec 18, 2015) - PhishMe® Inc., the pioneer in human-phishing defense solutions, today announced that it has been named a finalist in the 2016 SC Magazine Awards for Best IT Security-Related Training Platform for its comprehensive phishing threat management solution. Since 2008, PhishMe has conditioned millions of enterprise employees to spot, report and help defend their organizations against phishing attacks, helping end users and security professionals work together to significantly reduce phishing susceptibility rates.

"We are honored to be recognized as one of the top IT Security Training Platforms by SC Magazine," said Rohyt Belani, CEO and co-founder of PhishMe. "Phishing attacks continue to be the dominant cyber attack vector. Our solution is a unique platform that nurtures and operationalizes human intelligence to combat such attacks and prevent them from translating into data breaches. Our dedication to continued innovation and focus on our customers' needs is the reason almost half of the Fortune 100 put their faith in PhishMe."

This accolade comes on the heels of a banner year for PhishMe -- with the company reporting 105 percent year-over-year growth in Q3. PhishMe was also recently honored as one of the Fastest Growing Private Companies on the Inc 5000 and as one of the Fastest Growing Companies in North America on the Deloitte Fast 500. This record growth has cemented PhishMe's position as an innovator in phishing threat management.

"From Duqu 2.0 to mobile cyber threats to the nearly $1 billion stolen from financial institutions by the Carbanak cybercriminal group, 2015 saw near-exponential growth in the number and complexity of cyber attacks," said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. "As the bad guys shift and pivot strategies, so too do the men, women and companies working to stop them in their tracks. These finalists have shown that they are the best at what they do."

The SC Awards, now in its 19th year, are recognized throughout the security industry as the gold standard of excellence in cybersecurity. Winners in the Excellence category are determined by an expert panel of judges, handpicked by SC Magazine's editorial team, for their breadth of knowledge and experience in the information security industry.
