Duo Security Launches Duo Insight - Organizations Can Phish Their Own Company in Under Five Minutes to Determine Risk from Phishing Attacks
Free internal phishing simulation tool enables organizations to identify security weaknesses
Duo Security, a cloud-based trusted access provider protecting the world’s largest and fastest-growing companies, today announced the launch of Duo Insight, a free tool that lets IT teams run internal phishing simulations within five minutes. With the results of those simulations, administrators can identify potential security weaknesses and make the case for investing in stronger security solutions.
Proactively protecting against data breaches to stop them before they happen is a critical for companies of all sizes. Sixty three percent of the data breaches we hear about today stem from stolen, weak or default credentials, according to the latest Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report. Based on the first hundred phishing simulations run with Duo Insight, 27% of end users are susceptible to phishing and 17% of all users actually entered their username and password. This is particularly disturbing, because it means a simple phishing campaign has an incredibly high probability of succeeding.
“Unfortunately, many organizations lack the resources to accurately measure the risk of being phished,” said Ash Devata, Vice President of Product at Duo. “Our free tool, Duo Insight, helps security professionals identify users and devices that are susceptible to a phishing attack.”
With Duo Insight, security teams can discover where the largest security vulnerabilities are in their company and take the appropriate steps to increase security in those areas. Duo Insight provides easy-to-read reports that make it easy for administrators and security teams to present the relevant findings to CISOs and CIOs within their organization. Those reports help IT teams build their evidence-based case for additional security investments that target user and device risk, resulting in a stronger overall security posture for the entire organization.
Duo Insight is available free of charge at https://insight.duo.com.
