Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., today announced its collaboration with Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider for cloud-enabled security solutions. With the cost of data breach rapidly increasing and more businesses being affected each year, Canon Solutions America recognized the need to provide a security awareness resource geared toward helping customers mitigate risk. The Barracuda PhishLine offering is designed to help customers guard against social-engineering threats through continuous simulation and training for employees.
“We are excited to work with the exceptional team at Canon Solutions America in offering Barracuda’s innovative computer-based training solution, PhishLine, to organizations they serve,” said Ezra Hookano, VP of Channels at Barracuda. “As threats increase and become more sophisticated, security awareness training is a key element in securing people, brand, and businesses. PhishLine can help prevent email fraud, data loss, and brand damage by training and testing employees to recognize highly targeted phishing attacks.”
PhishLine helps employees recognize the subtle clues that an email is not from whom it says it’s from. It uses a two-pronged approach to meet this end. First, computer-based training gives users a baseline understanding of the latest techniques attackers are using. Second, PhishLine embeds learning into business processes, by launching customized simulations that test and reinforce good user behavior. A large library of curated content means faster time to value, while rich reporting and analytics provide visibility.
The benefits to Canon Solutions America customers from the Barracuda PhishLine offering include:
• Turning employees into front–line defenders of workplace security by reducing social engineering vulnerability.
• Choice of hundreds of email templates, landing pages and domains.
• Phishline Concierge Service, available for expert campaign design, operation and results reporting.
“Canon Solutions America is eager to have customers take advantage of the Barracuda PhishLine relationship,” said Peter Kowalczuk, president of Canon Solutions America. “We want our customers to feel empowered, and the Barracuda PhishLine offering encourages a more proactive mindset to security. Organizations of all sizes will have access to easy to use simulation and training that will transform employees from potential victims into the first line of defense against sophisticated phishing attacks.”
