LEESBURG, Va.–()–Cofense, the leading provider of phishing detection and response (PDR) solutions, today announced it has been named as a Representative Vendor in Integrated Cloud Email Security (ICES) Category in the 2023 Gartner® Market Guide for Email Security. The report identifies four Cofense products, including Cofense Reporter, PhishMe, Intelligence and Triage. We believe Cofense’s inclusion in the report emphasizes the market need for end-to-end email security solutions that help organizations stop sophisticated phishing attacks, like business email compromise (BEC), ransomware and credential theft, that continuously bypass standard email security solutions.

The Gartner Market Guide for Email Security identifies customer use cases and pain points, key technology developments and Representative vendors in the email security space. According to the report, security and risk management leaders responsible for email security should “evaluate built-in email security capabilities provided by cloud email systems and augment it with third-party solutions for handling sophisticated attacks.” 1 These leaders should also “use email security solutions that include anti-phishing technology for targeted BEC protection that use AI to detect communication patterns and conversation-style anomalies, as well as computer vision for inspecting suspect URLs.”1

“Today’s organizations are faced with an expanding cyber-attack surface and email threats that are increasing in complexity, all while facing cybersecurity talent shortages and lack of resources,” said Rohyt Belani, CEO and co-founder of Cofense. “Cofense has been dedicated to email security for over a decade, giving us the insights needed to build a comprehensive email security solution for global organizations of all sizes. We believe our inclusion in this Report, coupled with numerous analyst recommendations that align with our offerings, is validation that our automated, intelligent email security solutions are changing the way companies defend themselves.”

Trusted by 25% of the Fortune 1000, Cofense is the only end-to-end email security solution powered by a global network of more than 35 million users utilizing machine learning and a combination of unique intelligence sources: human intelligence, artificial intelligence and email attack intelligence. These insights, deployed through various products in the Cofense Phishing Detection and Response (PDR) Platform, allows customers to identify, protect, detect and respond to all email security threats that currently bypass traditional email security, like Secure Email Gateways (SEGs).
