KnowBe4 Launches New PhishER Plus Threat Intel Feature

By KnowBe4

New feature accelerates threat management by enabling better web reputation visibility, threat detection and automated threat response

KnowBe4, the provider of the world's largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, today announced the launch of PhishER Plus Threat Intel, a new feature that integrates website reputation data from Webroot directly into the PhishER Plus console. This integration enables faster, automated detection and response to web-based threats.

Cybercriminals are constantly evolving their methods to bypass traditional security defenses through techniques like drive-by downloads and web-based malware delivery. PhishER Plus Threat Intel provides users with instant internet reputation data to enable smart and automated responses to web threats. This new feature helps to manage the challenge of escalating cybersecurity risks from web-based attacks that have made rapid threat identification and response capabilities mission critical for security teams.

PhishER Plus Threat Intel eliminates the need for manual searches and enhances threat detection by surfacing comprehensive data on website reputation and threat history. This frees up security teams to focus on more complex threats while ensuring consistent, rapid response to web-based attacks across the organisation. By streamlining processes and reducing manual effort, managing online threats becomes quicker and less labor-intensive, enabling response to threats on a larger scale.

“By adding this new feature, we are arming security teams with the automated threat detection and accelerated response capabilities they need to stay ahead of increasing cybersecurity attacks while bolstering an organisation’s defence system," said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “Webroot is a renowned threat intelligence leader and this integration with KnowBe4’s PhishER Plus platform will allow Security Operations Centers to identify and address web-based threats quickly and efficiently."

With enhanced visibility into web reputation, efficient threat detection and automated response capabilities, the PhishER Plus Threat Intel feature removes gaps in awareness, prompts smart threat responses and enables security teams to maintain a strong security posture. This new feature is included with the PhishER Plus subscription with no additional costs or the need for a separate Webroot license.
