Build a culture of cybersecurity awareness and shape unsafe behaviors


PSAT Assess

Step one is to establish your organization’s baseline and understand where your user cybersecurity knowledge and program gaps are. Proofpoint Security Awareness helps inform your program focus through knowledge assessments, culture assessments, and phishing simulation tests that are driven by our threat intelligence. And it integrates with Proofpoint Targeted Attack Protection (TAP) to give you insights into your top clickers and Very Attacked People™(VAPs) in real-world attacks.

Proofpoint helps you identify what your users know, what they would do when faced with threats, and how they feel about security. These factors help you adapt your security awareness program to fit your users’ unique needs.

You get:

  • Phishing/USB simulations based on real-world threats
  • Knowledge assessments
  • Culture assessments
  • Reports that identify your VAPs and top clickers
