KnowBe4 is a platform for security awareness training and simulated phishing attacks. KnowBe4 enables you to effectively manage the problem of social engineering. KnowBe4 was founded on the principle that the human side of the cyber security industry is severely neglected. There is no national security strategy in place to protect against cyber-attacks on private organizations; Small and Medium Enterprises are completely on their own. The efficacy of the major source of network protection to date, antivirus suites against malicious threats and zero-day exploits, is severely lacking—antivirus is but a component of a truly effective network security strategy.
