KnowBe4 Information – KnowBe4 Philosophy
We are happy to go against the grain.
We’re not a company that turns out bloatware year after year.
We don’t work with only the bottom line in mind.
And we feel fine with all that.
We’re a team of free-thinking techies, who look at IT security issues a little differently.
Where other IT security companies may value profits, we value, well…security.
We are not in the pocket of any of the large players.
We answer to no one but IT admins in the trenches.
Our rules are: “Do it right the first time, do it fast, and have fun while you do it”.
We work like that, because we think it’s the only way to go.
We believe that only with community can you effectively secure your domains.
We believe that as IT Admins we need to hang together, because if we don’t we will hang alone.
We’re not just a different kind of security company, we are a security company that together with you, makes a difference.
KnowBe4 delivers ‘new-school’ security awareness training combined with set-it-and-forget-it simulated phishing attacks for an extremely effective user education program.
KnowBe4 has become the world’s most popular integrated Security Awareness Training and Simulated Phishing platform. Thousands of enterprise accounts are using it, 25% of which are banks and credit unions. Based on Kevin Mitnick’s 30+ year unique first-hand hacking experience, you now have a tool to better manage the urgent IT security problems of social engineering, spear phishing and ransomware attacks.
With this world-class, user-friendly and effective Internet Security Awareness Training, KnowBe4 provides self-service enrollment, and both pre-and post-training phishing security tests that show the percentage of end-users that are Phish-prone. KnowBe4’s unique “double-random” scheduled Phishing Security Tests keep employees on their toes with security top of mind, and can provide instant remedial online training in case an employee falls for a simulated phishing attack.
The Security Awareness Training project leader at every KnowBe4 customer gets access to user provisioning, and comprehensive pre- and post- training reporting. Every end-user gets engaging and effective training by Kevin Mitnick (“The World’s Most Famous Hacker’). After being trained end-users can receive ongoing testing, with a frequency determined by you. Executives get the insight they need to maximize training ROI and track security compliance.
The KnowBe4 team has built, deployed, and supported market leading e-learning applications and has deep roots in IT Security. KnowBe4 was started by Stu Sjouwerman, formerly co-founder of Sunbelt Software, developer of VIPRE Antivirus, which in 2010 was acquired by GFI Software, a portfolio company of the Insight Venture Partners.
