Also unveils SMB edition of its anti-phishing training simulator for the channel

PhishMe has unveiled the PhishMe Channel Alliance, a channel distribution programme designed to bring PhishMe security training solutions to the global market.

Following its “892 percent growth over the last three years”, said the phishing defence company, it has kicked off its global channel efforts by releasing a new solution available exclusively through the channel, and made specifically for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

The PhishMe Channel Alliance has been designed to promote strong partnerships with global resellers that have “deep penetration” into both small and medium businesses and larger enterprises. PhishMe recently on-boarded two of the largest North American technology resellers into the Channel Alliance in addition to several other notable value added resellers (VARs).

Channel partners can also take advantage of PhishMe’s various technology integrations to build comprehensive security programmes tailored to their customers’ needs.

PhishMe has launched a channel-exclusive offering, Simulator Small Business Edition (SBE), a scaled down version of its flagship Simulator solution.

Jim Hansen, COO of PhishMe, said: “Organisations are always looking for the mythical silver bullet to solve all of their security woes, and security vendors are increasingly pointing to technology as the answer, ignoring the importance of the human element.

Through the Channel Alliance and the SBE offering, we will be able to assist an even wider range of organisations around the world with a proven solution that turns humans into powerful security assets.”

Employees are the number one attack target because they’re often the easiest entry point into a network, especially in small and mid-sized businesses,” said Scott Gréaux, VP of product management at PhishMe. “Simulator SBE gives those organisations access to enterprise-class training technology without breaking their budgets, so they can effectively condition their staff and fortify their phishing defences like never before.”
