and mitigate people-based cybersecurity risks

Human-risk aware security that makes your users resilient.

Without understanding user risk, security controls and awareness programs are blind.

Most cybersecurity issues can be traced back to human error. Although many organizations have security controls and some form of security awareness education in place to mitigate this issue, they lack visibility into where their human risk lies. Without knowing their most vulnerable users, organizations cannot protect them adequately, nor prepare them to recognize and prevent attacks.

Unlock full user risk visibility and drive behavior change.

Proofpoint human-centric intelligence provides invaluable insights into vulnerable, privileged, and targeted individuals within the organization, pinpointing those most likely to be compromised and enabling organizations to apply their strongest human-centric controls where they will mitigate the most risk.

Identify Risk

Identify vulnerable, attacked, and privileged (VAPs) individuals within the organization and who are most likely to be compromised.

Adaptive Protection

Protect your most risky and privileged used with specific security controls.

Change Unsafe Behavior

Create sustainable security habits by using personalized content for each user’s needs.

Evaluate and Scale

Measure performance and make group wide decisions with multitenant administration.

Report Back

We measure behavioral metrics that matter to your executive leadership.


Turn your employees into active defenders

Focus on true risk within your organization

Proofpoint identifies vulnerable users using multiple methods— we identify what users know with adaptive learning assessments; what users do when faced with threats with phishing simulations that mimic real-world attacks; and what users believe with short and concise assessments.

Powerful integrations

Integrated with Proofpoint Threat Protection, we unveil Very Attacked People and top clickers. Nexus People Risk Explorer (NPRE) quantifies people risk by considering user vulnerability, attack index, and business privilege, revealing the riskiest users.
