ID Agent Bolsters MSP Security Platform with New Phishing and Security Awareness Training

BOWIE, Md., March 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ID Agent, the channel’s leading provider of Dark Web monitoring and identity theft protection solutions, today announced the release of BullPhish ID™, a Phishing Simulator and Security Awareness Training platform to help organizations train their employees using real-world social engineering attacks, coupled with video-based training. With over 90% of security breaches caused by human error, organizations of all sizes must train their employees on security basics and how to defend against social engineering and phishing attacks.

With BullPhish ID, MSPs can provide their customers with mock, simulated phishing attacks targeting their own employees with a few simple clicks. Results from these simulations allow organizations to understand their risk of falling victim to a social engineering attack. Training campaigns will deliver short, visually engaging videos and quizzes, to educate employees on security basics and how to defend against future attacks.

Kevin Lancaster, ID Agent CEO, says, "We designed BullPhish ID specifically for our Partner MSPs to complement the validated stolen credential data delivered by Dark Web ID™. We focused on making this an easy-to-use, campaign-based experience, with combined QBR reporting capabilities, so our Partners can best demonstrat their customers’ overall security posture."

The new platform allows MSPs to manage multiple target groups in an organization, so they can receive different messages. It includes flexible email and landing pages, so administrators leverage pre-loaded templates, edit them, or upload their own text or HTML. Phishing emails can be sent at staggered, random dates and times, so all employees don’t receive them on the same day. Partners will have the option to include custom-selected elements of the dark web monitoring results, phishing and training statistics, to visualize the bigger picture of the organization’s cyber health.

Added Lancaster, “ID Agent is committed to delivering on its mission to provide businesses of all sizes with the most comprehensive cyber security products available, through the MSP channel. BullPhish ID does that by making well-trained and measured employees an active part of their defense strategy.”
