KnowBe4 is Vectra’s preferred security awareness training and phishing simulation partner
Melbourne, Australia (October 23rd, 2020) – KnowBe4, the provider of the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, today announced it has added Vectra as a new channel partner in Australia to its global portfolio of partners.
KnowBe4 helps to make employees more aware of and teaches them how to respond to cybersecurity threats such as phishing and social engineering that frequently affect organisations. Social engineering and phishing are responsible for 70-90% of all malicious data breaches.
Vectra’s customer base will allow KnowBe4 to reach a larger range of organisations in Asia-Pacific. Combined with Vectra’s existing services, KnowBe4 will allow Vectra to provide end to end security and compliance support to the market. Vectra has a regional footprint and long-standing customer relationships that KnowBe4 can add to with its varied array of training and phishing templates.
“This is a very exciting partnership for KnowBe4, and we look forward to working with Vectra to deliver our security awareness training and simulated phishing platform to even more organisations across the Asia-Pacific region,” said Tony Jennings, SVP of global channel sales, KnowBe4. “As the only partner of Vectra’s in our particular space, this provides us with new opportunities to help organisations better manage the ongoing problem of social engineering.”
“We are very excited about our new partnership with KnowBe4”, says Vectra Managing Director Chris Smerdon. “It further enriches Vectra’s services delivered by the Vectra SOC. Using KnowBe4 enables Vectra to provide simulated phishing campaigns to monitor client maturity and risk levels, and deliver rich training content to educate users so they can better identify malicious content. Technology-based defences are not a silver bullet, it is equally important to train and continually educate users to respond to the continuous barrage of potential threats.”
KnowBe4 impacts organisations’ human firewall with awareness training that includes baseline testing, user training, and automated simulated phishing attacks for businesses of all sizes to build a more resilient and secure organization.
