London 24th November 2017 – MetaCompliance, the leading provider of staff awareness, policy governance and risk management in the areas of privacy, cyber security and compliance has won a Computing Security Excellence Award.
The company have won the Risk Management Award for its MetaPhish solution.
The Computing Security Excellence Awards celebrate the achievements of the IT industry's best security companies, solutions, products and personalities.
The announcement was made at a glitzy award ceremony at Hilton Tower Bridge in central London on Thursday 23rd November 2017.
Phishing emails are designed to gain attention and action an immediate response with the potential victim lulled into reacting quickly and clicking on the fraudulent call to action. On average, phishing sites are online for less than 15 hours, which makes it difficult to quickly identify and block them. To add to this, close to 100% of phishing URLs point to malicious pages or sites within benign domains, which helps them seem like legitimate sources.
MetaPhish enables organisations to quickly identify where the cyber security education levels lie within your organisation. It educates your users who are putting your organisation most at risk. The tool includes penetration testing, a wide variety of customisable templates, attachments and domain addresses for users to utilise.
Speaking about the win, MetaCompliance CEO, Robert O’Brien said: “We are delighted to have won the Risk Management award at the Computing Security Excellence Awards. With over 1.2 million known phishing attacks in 2016, and that number set to increase for this year, we feel that our product is perfectly placed to not only safeguard organisations from the threat of phishing, but more importantly minimise the risk of human error that comes along with it.”
This news caps of a remarkable week for the company following the announcement of 69 new jobs at the Derry office. The new positions, over the next three years, are to develop its worldwide sales and market presence.
