TraceSecurity launches Phishing Simulator


Apr 02, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) -- TraceSecurity, a provider of cloud-based IT governance, risk and compliance solutions, has launched the TraceSecurity Phishing Simulator, a cloud-based solution that allows organizations to perform on-demand social engineering tests that mimic real-world attacks.



With the Phishing Simulator, organizations can evaluate the effectiveness of existing information security policies, determine how well employees adhere to internal security procedures when presented with a phishing email, assess the level of security awareness among employees, and identify areas for remediation, the company said.

"Deploying a simulated phishing attack against groups of employees not only tests their willingness to click on an unsolicited email, but also determines if they are apt to download potentially harmful code onto company resources," said Jim Stickley, TraceSecurity CTO.


"Malicious messages often contain malware that, when activated, can easily infect an entire network, which is why we developed Phishing Simulator. We believe every organization should, at a minimum, test a few employees and see how they do." http://www.datamonitor.com Republication or redistribution, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited without prior written consent.
