Simulated Attacks, Knowledge Assessments, and Very Attacked People

Security Awareness Training


It’s one thing to understand which of your users are susceptible to simulated phishing attacks. It’s another to understand real phishing susceptibility and vulnerability in other key security awareness areas. Our unique people-centric approach gives you the insight you need. We provide you with Very Attacked People (VAP)™ reports, simulated attacks, and knowledge assessments. With these tools,  you can run a more effective security awareness program.

See user risk through a whole new lens

We take your unique people-centric risk profile and map it to a targeted, data-driven security awareness training program. We use real-world data on the threats and people being attacked in your organization. And we provide simulated attacks and knowledge assessments to give you a richer user risk profile. What’s more, our built-in automation provides easy ways for you to assign targeted education to your users based off these assessments.

  • Use our VAP reports to understand which of your users are being attacked and what attacks they’re being targeted with.
  • Send simulated phishing, SMS and USB attacks using thousands of templates. These are based on lures seen in tens of billions of messages a day by Proofpoint threat intelligence.
  • Simulate link-based, attachment-based, and data-entry style attacks using features like system click detection, random scheduling, and multiple templates per campaign to get a more accurate measurement.
  • Easily send predefined and custom knowledge assessments on today’s most important cybersecurity and compliance topics to get a baseline on user security awareness knowledge.
  • Auto enroll users who fall for simulated attacks and fail knowledge assessments into targeted training.
