You may have heard the news announcing that Proofpoint — a leading next-generation security and compliance company — has acquired our company. On May 6th, the acquisition officially closed and The Defence Works is now part of Proofpoint.
This is an exciting time for all of us at The Defence Works, as we know this merger of products and services will bring our customers industry-leading security awareness training innovation with the addition of advanced threat detection and intelligence. The blending of our two companies will give you access to the most accurate insights into your employees’ vulnerability to the real-world attacks and threats you are facing every day, as well as the education solutions you need to more effectively manage and reduce end-user risk.
On a personal note, it has been an honor to work with our employees to grow The Defence Works into a leader in the security awareness market. The market and threat landscape have transformed dramatically and we have worked diligently to stay attentive to our customers’ needs and raise the bar for end-user awareness and training. The recent release of our Interactive Episodes series "THIS CITY" is a great example or our ongoing commitment to delivering cybersecurity education tools that help organizations change employee behaviors and improve their overall security postures. This decision-based, interactive security awareness training is based on recent real-life events, highlighting the risk to end users in an engaging and interactive format.
As we continue on this next leg of our journey, our goal is "business as usual" — that is, continuing to lead, innovate, and execute on our product vision, and provide the superior level of service The Defence Works customers have come to expect and enjoy.
We are very conscious that we would not be where we are without our customers. We thank you for trusting us to be your partner in security awareness and training, and we look forward to continuing to serve you in the years ahead.
Best of health,
Founder of The Defence Works
