Proofpoint - Security Awareness Training

Proofpoint Security Awareness Training, a Software as a Service (SaaS) based security awareness assessment and training solution, trains employees how to recognize and avoid mock phishing attacks. Proofpoint Security Awareness Training platform integrates software-based interactive training, mock cyber-attacks, reporting, and administrative capabilities, into one easy to use system – for both the administrator and the user.

Their training techniques have been proven over time and adopted as accepted learning principles. The software is designed to create "teachable moments" where users learn quickly and effectively. Users learn by doing and are provided immediate feedback to enhance retention. User interaction data collected throughout the training program allows administrators to identify organizational weaknesses to target training.
