EC Council Shield Alliance and Indian Market for Cyber Security Solutions

OhPhish Technologies was acquired by EC Council’s Shield Alliance around the first quarter of 2019, and its flagship product (also known as OhPhish) allows companies to simulate different types of phishing attacks on their own staff.
The need for Cyber Security is growing by the day and with more than 90% Cyber Attacks being triggered through phishing, the need for such solutions is on the rise. OhPhish phishing simulator mimics real-life attack scenarios that help equip employees to spot real phishing attacks and prevent data breaches. Through OhPhish, the clients can even launch the advanced spear phishing, credential capturing attacks, SMShing and even Vishing attacks, through a single state-of-the-art platform. All these are integrated with world-class e-Learning and Gamification modules that are part of the OhPhish Learning Management System (LMS).
“The increasing need for protection against Phishing attacks has created a void between demand and supply of quality Cyber Security awareness solutions that not only have world class content, but also make training a non-tedious activity for users. Traditional methods like classroom trainings have worked well in the past but are not scalable and hence are not able to fulfil the increasing demand.”
“Solutions like OhPhish are filling this void globally and since the product was made in India with inputs from Indian CISOs, we are confident that it would resonate well with the Indian; Saarc market” said Maninder Pal Singh, CEO – Shield Alliance International.

The channel programme has been designed in a way that it takes care of all partners from top to bottom of the chain.
