News : KnowBe4 Releases Free Phish Alert Outlook Add-in to Keep Networks Safe
Tampa Bay, FL January 18, 2016 -- KnowBe4 announced the release of a new tool for IT managers that can be deployed to their user’s Outlook Inbox, allowing employees a safe way to report a suspected phishing attack. The tool helps educate users to be alert for phishing attacks and enables them to easily report a suspicious email with a simple click, providing the security team a way to analyze threats and prevent future exposure. All email headers are included for the security team and the email gets deleted from the user’s inbox.
"Phish Alert puts an additional "human firewall" security layer in place that directly forwards phishing attacks to an organization’s Incident Response Team for analysis and follow up," said KnowBe4 CEO, Stu Sjouwerman.
Versions supported are Outlook 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016 for Windows and Outlook for Office 365.
