KnowBe4, the global provider of the security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, has announced that its new SecurityCoach product integrates with Cloudflare’s cloud email security. The two security organizations have collaborated together to help reduce risky behavior with product integration to support real-time security coaching.
What does this mean for KnowBe4 and Cloudflare?
“When we’re talking to CISOs—whether at Fortune 500s, startups, or non-profits — email security emerges as the biggest threat vector. We are excited to integrate with KnowBe4 to allow our mutual clients to offer real-time coaching to employees when a phishing campaign is detected by Cloudflare’s cloud email security. This will help reduce the human errors that lead to phishing attacks,” said Alex Dyner, Senior Vice President, Special Projects, Cloudflare.
Commenting on the partnership with Cloudflare, Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4, said, “Cloudflare joins our ecosystem of technology partners, which is growing rapidly, to enrich the support we provide to our customers and to fortify their organization’s human firewall.”
“KnowBe4 is proud to work with Cloudflare to provide a seamless integration with our new SecurityCoach product, to deliver real-time security coaching and advice to help end users enhance their cybersecurity knowledge and strengthen their role in a strong security culture.”
“KnowBe4 is actively working with Cloudflare to provide an API-based integration to connect our platform with systems that IT/security professionals already utilize, making rolling out new products to their teams an easy and unified process,” Stu Sjouwerman further added.
What does the integration mean for IT/security teams?
SecurityCoach helps IT/security professionals to develop a strong security culture by enabling real-time security coaching of their users in response to risky security behavior. Leveraging a firm’s existing security stack, IT/security professionals can configure their real-time coaching campaigns to immediately deliver a SecurityTip to their users related to a detected event.
KnowBe4 will give step-by-step instructions and recommendations to help IT/security teams achieve quick and pain-free integration and data syncing during the implementation process.
KnowBe4 now integrates or partners with over 20 of the world’s top cybersecurity platforms across Endpoint, Network, Identity, Cloud and Data Security. For more on SecurityCoach, visit the website. For more information about the integration, read this blog from Cloudflare.
