MediaPro Phishing Simulator and Anti-Phishing Services

Someday, maybe on a day just like today, your employees will get a phishing email. It’s inevitable.

The important thing is what they do in response.

A Comprehensive Phishing Solution

At MediaPro, teaching employees how to recognize and react to phishing emails is what we do. Unlike some other phishing simulation vendors, we believe testing your employees with simulated phishing attacks is just one part of an overall security awareness program. With MediaPro’s Phishing Simulator, we make it easy to measure and demonstrate your employees’ aptitude and progress and tie these results to targeted training content.

Your employees are on the front line in the anti-phishing battle, and you can’t win without them. That’s why we recommend a combination of simulated phishing attacks and training content to create a workforce that is immune to the lures of hackers.

Phishing Email Templates

Our tool gives you the power to recreate phishing messages you’ve seen in the wild by using our intuitive template design interface. Add your own text, links, pictures, and custom “from” addresses, all within a simple WYSIWYG editor. You can even add variables to the body of the email that will auto-populate with the first name, last name, and/or email address of the employee receiving the email. This allows for the creation of hyper-targeted spear phishing emails targeting specific employees, such as your CEO or director of human resources. Or, you can choose from a library of hundreds of pre-built templates based on common types of real phishing attacks.

You can also pick or design the exact landing page an employee will see if they take the bait. These landing pages can be directly linked to training and reinforcement activities within an LMS. This way, your training data resides all in one place for easy reporting.
