What do you like best?

Content is funny and engaging. Characters are the same from video to video so you get to know them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

How pricing is based and implemented. Training modules should not be limited and I shouldn't have to purchase more trainings. Customer service can be very poor as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Overall user awareness and performance measured through phishing campaigns. Users seem to like the content. It's funny and engaging. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The videos are very informative and keep the user engaged with humour. All users are scored which will report to the IT admin to review, ask for remediation and allow for intervention/further training if a user is considered risky to an organisation. New training videos and further scenarios are added every month to allow for more in depth training. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The videos consist of American actors, it would be good to see some British actors in their to appeal to the UK demographic. It would also be good to have tiered difficulties as the current training covers somewhat basic scenarios. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

AT has allowed our business to train users in house on how to avoid phishing and scams, this in turn has saved money on often costly out of house training. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Cybersecurity awareness and training just like the title states they do. I have found users strengthen passwords, paying attention to email structure and lessened my need to interact. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
