    Get visibility: Simulate a phishing attack

    Find out whether your security awareness, vulnerability and patch management programs are hitting the spot. Send out phishing emails to your users to measure how many users:

    • Opened the email
    • Clicked on the link
    • Submitted a web form
    • Used an exploitable browser
    Get instant feedback on where users and systems are vulnerable

    Identify weaknesses: Spot where your organization is the most vulnerable

    Find out where users and systems are vulnerable. To Define acceptable levels of risk for your organization and work towards them.

If many clients were exploitable after users clicked on the link, you may want to improve system security.

    Follow the actionable advice in the Metasploit reports to reduce your exposure

    Control risks: Get detailed advice

    If your user awareness metrics are cause for concern, additional training may be in order. Send users directly to an on-demand course after they click on a phishing link, or sign them up later. Measure the effectiveness of your security awareness trainings by measuring the phishing email click-through rate before and after the training. Adjust your training content or delivery method if the trainings don't show the results you were hoping for.

    To improve system security, review your vulnerability management and patching programs, or tweak browser security settings.
