MediaPro Launches New Adaptive Phishing Simulator and Knowledge Assessment Products

MediaPro’s Adaptive Phishing Simulator (APS) and Adaptive Knowledge Assessment join its award-winning Adaptive Awareness Framework.

BOTHELL, WA – October 06, 2015 – MediaPro announced two new tools to support its existing Adaptive Awareness Framework™: the Adaptive Phishing Simulator™ and the Adaptive Knowledge Assessment™. Both tools are part of MediaPro’s full suite of training and awareness products designed to address companies’ evolving needs toward implementing a truly integrated security awareness program.

An Integrated Phishing and Training Strategy

Phishing tools are critical to understanding and measuring human behavior in response to one of the most pressing security threats today – email phishing. MediaPro’s Adaptive Phishing Simulator (APS) simplifies the phishing process by identifying risky behavior, and offering immediate education to those individuals, at the point-of-failure. End users who “take the bait” are automatically enrolled in customized phishing training and reinforcement activities within a learning management system (LMS) – not just a stand-alone phishing system. These learning and awareness activities can vary with the phishing message and the actual end user behaviors.

This provides a fully integrated solution that allows for easy reporting and streamlined training administration. “Our Adaptive Phishing Simulator is fully-integrated with our learning management system and provides a streamlined dashboard interface for easy phishing and learning administration,” said Steve Conrad, Managing Director of MediaPro. “What’s more, rather than trying to patch together a solution all on their own, using multiple vendors, companies can now work with MediaPro to implement a fully integrated phishing and awareness solution that works the first time – right out of the box.”

Measurable Knowledge, Increased Performance

Also unveiled today is MediaPro’s new Adaptive Knowledge Assessment tool, offering the ability to measure results before and after implementation of a security or privacy awareness campaign. The assessment tool can be administered multiple times a year and deployed to different population segments. Insights from these ongoing assessments can be leveraged to ensure an accurate measure of employee performance and behaviors. Moreover, it will give companies the ability to quantify changes in performance, help justify return on investment, and provide guidance to direct meaningful improvements in human performance within the organization.
“Our Adaptive Knowledge Assessments help people gather data on the performance of their overall employee population, data that allows you to design an awareness program that fits the real needs of your employees and reduces your risk profile,” said Tom Pendergast, Chief Strategist; Security, Privacy, and Compliance at MediaPro.
