Intrepidus Group, a leading provider of information security services, today announced that it has experienced record sales and customer adoption for its PhishMe™ product, a software solution that enables user awareness training to proactively thwart spear phishing and whaling attacks. Further demonstrating Intrepidus Group’s tremendous success, the company also announced the addition of ex-eBay security guru, Robert Hansen (aka RSnake), to the company’s technical advisory board.

PhishMe has quickly become an invaluable defense against spear phishing schemes. Since its launch in July, PhishMe has been adopted by several Federal Agencies and Fortune 1000 companies across multiple vertical market sectors including Financial Services, Healthcare and Defense Contracting. In the last four months, more than 60,000 employees have been trained, using PhishMe, to identify and thwart spear phishing attacks and thus, significantly reduce cyber crime.

“The fast-growing and ominous threat of spear phishing and whaling attacks puts organizations at significant risk as cyber criminals use email-based ‘social engineering’ to gain unauthorized access to corporate systems and confidential data,” said Rohyt Belani, CEO of Intrepidus Group. “The best protection is human defense. Through real-time, interactive training and education by example, organizations can rely on their employees for detection and resistance to protect against spear phishing schemes that costly anti-spam or phishing filters often miss.”

Robert Hansen, a renowned security blogger and former Senior Global Product Manager of Trust and Safety at eBay, has joined the Intrepidus Group’s Technical Advisory Board to work closely with the Intrepidus management team to provide strategic guidance on the future direction of the company’s PhishMe.com product. Hansen is currently the CEO of SecTheory, a premier provider of information security consulting services. He is a frequent speaker at the industry’s top conferences including events hosted by the Anti-Phishing Working Group.

“Intrepidus Group has created a tremendously valuable and proven solution to build a human firewall of protection against the threat of spear phishing attacks,” said Hansen. “Companies who leverage the non-intrusive PhishMe solution see immediate value in the protection of their corporate systems with a low up-front investment. It’s a revolutionary approach to solving a very real and growing corporate threat. I am eager to participate more closely in the future direction of their product.”

“Robert’s understanding of the threat landscape and his experience with anti-phishing technologies will be a great asset to our company,” added Belani.
