Its intelligence-driven solutions empower employees to be an active line of defense and source of attack intelligence by enabling them to identify, report, and mitigate spear phishing, malware, and drive-by threats. The company has received a range of respected industry awards over the course of 2016, and recently announced record year-on-year growth.
The strategic alliance will benefit customers across the region, with PhishMe’s human intelligence-driven anti-phishing solutions augmenting Ingram Micro’s comprehensive technology portfolio. Together, PhishMe and Ingram Micro will help to protect organisations from advanced security threats.
