New Partnership Allows Customers To Leverage Human Anti-Phishing Solutions Alongside eShore’s Proven Cloud Security Services In the Caribbean, Bermuda and Latin America
Location: George Town, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands
Leading email and data security firm eShore Ltd (www.eshoreltd.com), today announced a new partnership with PhishMe, to resell and deliver human phishing defense solutions to organisations in the Caribbean, Bermuda and Latin America. Collaboration between the two security innovators will arm organisations with powerful anti-phishing security services, immersive behavioural conditioning and phishing reporting for employees.
The recent email simulation sent to 3,000 Cayman Islands Government staff, as reported by the Cayman Compass on February 5th, illustrates the reason why businesses are eager to deploy technologies such as PhishMe.
“The partnership between eShore and PhishMe enables us to bring critical resources for enhanced cyber security and threat detection to our joint customers in the Caribbean and Latin America regions,” said Jim Hansen, COO at PhishMe. “Together, PhishMe and eShore will help organisations combat cybercrime by delivering real-time, human-driven anti-phishing strategies and solutions.”
“The partnership enables our customers to strengthen their approach to cyber resilience and combat cybercrime with PhishMe’s proven human anti-phishing strategy,” said Polly Pickering, Managing Director at eShore. “Together with eShore’s proven cloud security services, such as Mimecast Targeted Threat Protection, we can now provide organisations with the increased visibility and control needed to fight advanced threats, while helping users understand best security practices.”
As seen in Accenture’s recent research, there is a major gap many organisations are experiencing when it comes to cyber resilience planning. One aspect of the data highlights that 69 percent of enterprise security executives reported experiencing an attempted theft or corruption of data by insiders during the last 12 months.
Results suggest that adopting and embracing technology as well as user-awareness training, incident response plans and simulated security exercises – among other training exercises including safe spear-phishing tests, regular security training and safe social engineering tests – is essential in the fight against email and web-based threats.
“As most organisations become operationally dependent on cloud and third-party infrastructures, they need to take a fresh and comprehensive look at their security, business continuity and employee training practices,” said Polly Pickering, Managing Director, eShore Ltd. “Through our partnership with PhishMe, organisations will get the resources they need for a well-rounded cyber resilience strategy: proven technology and immersive behavioral conditioning. Together, we will give organizations the visibility and control needed to more effectively fight advanced cyber threats.”
