PhishMe and FireEye partner to educate in the battle against targeted attacks

Share this article:

PhishMe and FireEye have announced a partnership to focus on improving defences against a broad array of advanced cyber threats, including spear phishing and targeted attacks.

Pairing the FireEye platform with employee training through immersion in PhishMe's simulated phishing scenarios, the two companies said that users will be able to promptly assess intrusions and remediate threats.

PhishMe and FireEye said that they hope to create a new organisation-wide mindset that cyber security impacts each employee. Both companies are committed to creating an open environment where employees are educated and aware of potential security threats, as well as the need for a robust security infrastructure.

Didi Dayton, vice president worldwide alliances, at FireEye, said: “PhishMe's unique employee training modules couple well with our advanced threat protection platform, helping organisations minimise the amount of vulnerabilities on the endpoint and the network.”
