Wombat Releases Anti-Phishing Training Suite

Wombat Security Technologies (Wombat), a provider of cyber security awareness and training solutions,  announced its anti-phishing training suite. The anti-phishing training suite enables security officers to assess vulnerabilities via simulated phishing attacks and provide in-depth anti-phishing education to change user behavior. It gives corporate security officers the ability to auto-enroll employees in follow-up training after they fall for a simulated attack. All of Wombat’s training solutions utilize learning science principles to engage the user, deliver practical knowledge, and ensure employees retain information they are taught in brief 10-minute training sessions. When combining simulated phishing attacks with Wombat’s interactive training, customers have experienced a greater than 80% reduction in employee susceptibility to attack, according to Wombat.

“Anyone can send mock phishing attacks to employees, but education is critical and our combination of simulated attacks coupled with innovative in-depth training delivers effective education and behavior change,” said Joe Ferrara, President and CEO of Wombat Security Technologies. ”Our anti-phishing training suite enables customers to provide positive reinforcement to end users, for example those who did not fall for a simulated attack, those who scored high on training modules, etc.”

5th Method Named To-10 SharePoint Consultant

SourcingLine published the first edition of its research on top Microsoft SharePoint consultants and Pittsburgh’s 5th Method made the cut. Out of the hundreds of firms that partner with Microsoft, only ten were highlighted in the research. The firms are: IMC, BrightStarr, General Networks,, Cabeus, PortalFront, 5th Method Consulting, SADA Systems, ImageTech Systems, and UruIT.

The research leverages the proprietary Leaders Matrix methodology that maps each firm’s focus on ECM Microsoft SharePoint platforms against their ability to deliver world-class results for their clients. SourcingLine also published a companion directory of Microsoft SharePoint Consultants, which provides prospective buyers with filtering tools to help identify service providers that best meet their needs.

The Leaders Matrix focuses on firms that are able to improve content centric business processes and develop custom solutions for enterprise clients. The top consultants were selected based on over a dozen factors including company experience, breadth of knowledge, client references, certifications, industry recognition, and marketing presence.
