IRONSCALES has announced that it has entered into a new partnership with California-based security awareness training leader NINJIO. As part of the collaboration, IRONSCALES will license NINJIO’S full library of micro-learning phishing simulation videos, thereby expanding the premium content available to users of IronSchool, the company’s phishing attack simulation and awareness training module.
For IRONSCALES, the partnership enables the company to remain focused on persistent innovation of its advanced phishing threat protection platform while continuing to offer its users phishing awareness training content that is proven to keep viewers engaged and retentive.
“Phishing awareness training is one small but important piece to the very complex email security puzzle,” said Eyal Benishti, founder and CEO of IRONSCALES. “Partnering with NINJIO ensures that all of our users will have access to a plethora of premium videos that are realistic representations of phishing scenarios at the length and quality that viewers are proven to respond favorably to.”
Each month, NINJIO produces a less than five-minute micro-learning cyber awareness training Episode inspired by a real company that has suffered a significant breach. To keep the viewers’ attention, NINJIO emotionally connects to the viewers in the very first scene and highlights a single attack vector, a strategy which has proven to keep viewers engaged throughout the length of the training. Every Episode is written by Bill Haynes, a member of the Writer’s Guild of America, who has a combined 72 episodes of CSI:NY and Hawaii 5-0 under his belt. IRONSCALES chose to partner with NINJIO after inquiring into more than a dozen security awareness training companies. According to Gartner Peer Insights, NINJIO receives 4.9 out of 5 stars, has been given the “Customer Choice Award for 2018” and earns a 5 out of 5 in product capabilities, production quality and content quality.
“We’re very pleased to enter into a win-win partnership with IRONSCALES that will enable its users to access our library of cyber awareness training video content,” said Zack Schuler, NINJIO’S Founder & CEO. “By approaching security awareness training through storytelling that entertains and educates rather than lecturing, our episodes are proven to have significant security mitigation benefits that transcend the industry’s status quo.”
The IRONSCALES advanced phishing threat prevention platform seamlessly integrates with G-Suite and Microsoft Office365. The platform was specifically built to automatically prevent, detect and respond to sophisticated spear-phishing and business email compromise attacks that can now easily evade secure email gateways and other legacy email security tools. By providing protection at every stage of an email phishing attack, IRONSCALES’ customers reduce the time from email phishing attack discovery to enterprise-wide remediation from days, weeks or months to just seconds, with little to no security team involvement.
IRONSCALES was recently named “Enterprise Email Security Solution of the Year” by the Cybersecurity Breakthrough Awards and was recognized by Forbes as “Machine Learning Startup to Watch in 2018.”
NINJIO is a Security Awareness Solution that produces 3-4-minute long animated episodes that educate users on current cyber security threats. NINJIO Episodes are written by a Hollywood story teller, are based on or inspired by significant breaches suffered by real organizations and focus on a single attack vector per episode. The episodes are written with the intention of emotionally engaging the viewer in the first scene of every Episode and keeping them engaged until the end. This creates a strong memory that leads to a high level of retention, resulting in less breaches. NINJIO is a privately held company.
According to Gartner Peer Insights, as of October 9, 2018, NINJIO has an overall rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars in the Security Awareness Computer-Based Training Market based on 68 reviews.
