Share Article

The only security awareness provider to offer Vishing, SMiShing, Phishing and USB-baiting simulations in one anti-phishing tool.

With the latest enhancements to PhishProof, organizations of any size can test, train, measure, and improve their phishing preparedness all under one unified experience, while tracking meaningful ROI. Organizations that send simulated phishing attempts once a month show a 27% decrease in clicks.

Inspired eLearning, the world’s most effective security awareness training platform, announced today its enhancement launch of PhishProof, anti-phishing solution, by adding Vishing (phoning) and SMiShing (texting) simulations. Adding these features to the PhishProof platform makes Inspired eLearning the first in its market to offer simulations for all four of the most common types of phishing attacks: email (phishing), phone (Vishing), text (SMiShing), and USB (USB baiting).

Phishing has developed into a multi-billion-dollar crime, so phishing attacks are becoming more sophisticated in both type and frequency. E-mail, phone, text, and USB baiting are all being leveraged by bad actors to gain unauthorized access to private data and systems. The average cost of a phishing attack to a mid-size company is $1.6 million. If not properly prepared, financial and reputational damage could cripple your business. With the latest enhancements to PhishProof, organizations of any size can test, train, measure, and improve their phishing preparedness all under one unified experience, while tracking meaningful ROI. Our research reveals organizations that send simulated phishing attempts to their employees once a month show a 27% decrease in clicks.

“With phishing and ransomware at all-time highs, it is great timing to be first in the market to offer simulations for all four of the most common ‘real-world’ types of phishing attacks all under the PhishProof umbrella: e-mail, phone (Vishing), text (SMiShing), and USB baiting. These enhancements offer any sized organization the tools to ensure their employees are better equipped to identify, report, and reduce the success of phishing attacks in order to curb potential damage to their organizations,” said Kyle Metcalf, CEO of Inspired eLearning.

Traditional phishing simulation software is focused only on identifying ‘at-risk’ users who may fall victim to an e-mail phishing attack. This is inadequate for security awareness programs, which need to focus on all users to curb attacks. Targeted education on the latest phishing trends, techniques, and best practice reinforcement is vital in cultivating a Security First culture.

With PhishProof, Inspired eLearning continues investing in developing a phishing simulation platform that replicates various types of phishing attacks no different than what an employee would see in everyday life. Paired with engaging, award-winning training, continuous reinforcement, and advanced reporting all in our new, easy to use dashboard, your workforce will be prepared when faced with a phishing threat. PhishProof is included in all Inspired eLearning Security First solutions at no additional cost. All PhishProof features are available immediately, internationally and in 23 languages.
