Take Your Fight Against Social Engineering to the Next Level

  • Comprehensive SCORM-compliant user training and testing
  • Phishing simulation for emails, voicemail, and SMS
  • Workflow engine that automatically directs training and testing
  • Industry leading analytics and reporting

Your users sit on the front lines of ever-increasing email-based threats like phishing, ransomware, and malware. As hackers become more sophisticated and prevalent, users need to be aware of the threats and trained to easily recognize malicious emails.

Barracuda PhishLine turns your users from part of the attack surface to part of the solution. PhishLine provides leading-edge user awareness training to counter sophisticated phishing and socially engineered spear phishing attacks. PhishLine helps your users sharpen their anti-phishing skills with advanced phishing simulations along with end-user testing, reporting, and comprehensive metrics that let you take prompt and meaningful action against threats.

Email security is not just the responsibility of IT – it’s the responsibility of every employee in your organization. PhishLine makes it easy for your users to report any suspicious email to you using a “Phishing Report” button embedded directly into Microsoft Outlook.

As with other Barracuda products, PhishLine is engineered for elegant simplicity, and easy to deploy. The training and phishing simulation supports multiple languages, and the content can be customized so it is relevant to each user. You can even create customized portable media (USB, CD, etc.) for use in user training scenarios

Train Users to Recognize Phishing Emails, Voicemails, and SMS Messages

Social engineers attack through more vectors than just email, so train your users to recognize threats from multiple sources. PhishLine provides the industry-leading email (phishing), voice phishing (vishing) and SMS messaging (smishing) simulation platform to help you test your users the way an attacker would.

Your employees probably get many phone calls and text messages every day. A response to an unfamiliar automated call or request for a callback means there is the possibility of a malware or data theft.

PhishLine can simulate outbound and inbound email, phone, and text campaigns. In outbound mode, PhishLine will call or text your users and provide interactive text-to-speech responses to test which users take the bait. In inbound mode, PhishLine emails your users with a call-to-action.

Customize Training to Make it Engaging and Relevant to Your Users

Training only works if it is relevant and engaging to your users. PhishLine provides a wide variety of compelling and realistic training materials that can be used either stand-alone or integrated into simulated phishing and social engineering campaigns.

You can easily customize the high-quality materials included with your subscription. You also can integrate your own content or purchase content from our media partners and host it on the PhishLine platform.

PhishLine lets you deliver training automatically as the need is identified. For example, you can use a landing page to train in-the-moment when someone performs an unsafe action as part of a mock phishing campaign. You can send training invitations to specific users based on their past actions and risk profile. You can also schedule training invitations and post on-demand training on your intranet.


Identify Human Risk Factors in a Non-Threatening Manner

Do your users truly understand that information security policy they signed? Did a recent information security announcement have any impact on your users’ perceptions of risk? Is your security awareness program addressing the real needs of your employees from their perspectives?

These are some of the questions that the PhishLine Risk-Based Survey module addresses in a thoughtful, perceptive, and non-threatening manner. Our unique, qualitative risk assessment capabilities allow for discovery in the “voice of the employee.”

Our back-end analysis capabilities lead to a unique and powerful assessment tool that quantifies risk by impact and likelihood scores. You can objectively evaluate your organization’s human risk factor based on meaningful feedback from your users.

Fresh Content: Click Thinking™ Updates and
Content Center Marketplace

With PhishLine, there’s no need to recycle the same old training and testing. Our security experts make sure the Content Center Marketplace is constantly updated with reflections of the newest threats and training resources available. Engage – and keep – your user’s interest with materials that fit your corporate culture from the wide variety of choices we offer.

In addition, each month, our customers receive Click Thinking™, our monthly bundle of content updates. Each month’s update is aligned around a hot topic, and includes a new training video, email template and landing page. We also distribute a monthly newsletter, infographic and intranet content. This keeps your training program fresh and on topic.

There’s no need to piece together your curriculum. Our experts have created phishing tests—from methodologies, to lures, to landing pages—that complement the content of our partners’ training materials. This means there is one style, one message, one way to make things happen from start to finish. This saves your organization time and money by providing a fully integrated social engineering solution.

Automate Your Enterprise Anti-Phishing Program

Don’t give hackers the edge by failing to execute day in and day out.

Automatic Updating of Address Books

The PhishLine Workflow Subscription can save you time while improving your address book accuracy! PhishLine can automatically merge data from multiple sources, eliminating the need to manually export and import address books for each employee.

Merging Risk-Based Attributes from Multiple Sources

The PhishLine Workflow appliance can also merge risk-based user attributes from other applications and databases and then use this information to trigger testing and training campaigns based on events. For example, you can integrate PhishLine into your HR system to automatically trigger a “new hire training campaign” for new employees.

Teachable Moments that Matter™

By integrating with third party databases such as LDAP, PhishLine can automatically trigger the delivery of security awareness content based on actual events. For example, a simple password reset request to the help desk can now become an immersive moment in which users can receive training and testing to ensure best practices are being applied.
