Expert Insight:

Barracuda PhishLine is a good option for enterprise sized customers looking for advanced security awareness training. Simulated campaigns can be carried out on a range of different phishing attacks going beyond email, such as voicemail, text and USB. Simulated attacks and training modules can be fully customised, ideal for large enterprises facing unique security threats. Training material is fully compliant and covers a vast array of well researched security topics. The big drawback of this platform, however, is that the training material is not as engaging or interactive as some other security awareness training vendors offer.

On the other hand, this product has granular and customisable reporting, which can give you actionable insights into your organisation’s security awareness. It gives you vulnerability profiling and collects information from over 16,000 data points. The platform also offers an Outlook plug-in, which allows users to report suspected phishing emails to IT. Barracuda PhishLine is an advanced security awareness training platform, with advanced functionality.
