Annville, PA. May 21, 2020 – Candoris announces a brand-new partnership with KnowBe4, a best-in-class security awareness training and simulated phishing platform. KnowBe4 impacts organizations’ human firewall with awareness training that includes baseline testing, user training, and automated simulated phishing attacks for businesses of all sizes to build a more resilient and secure organization. This partnership further deepens the portfolio of security solutions that Candoris provides customers.
“Our number one concern is being a trusted advisor and bringing industry-leading solutions to our customers. Mitigating risk of cybersecurity attacks is a top priority in the current climate, and it begins with empowering organizations with the information and training needed for their teams to make safe user decisions. We’re very excited to be partnering with KnowBe4, the clear leader in the industry,” remarked Candoris Founder and Chief Accountability Officer Stephan Van Der Ploog.
“We look forward to working with Candoris to bring KnowBe4’s security awareness training and simulated phishing platform to organizations as an important component of their overall security program,” said KnowBe4 CEO Stu Sjouwerman. “As we continue to expand our footprint into more areas, it’s critical to add valued partners like Candoris to help security professionals manage the ongoing problem of social engineering.”
Social engineering and phishing are responsible for 70-90% of all malicious data breaches. The main objective of security awareness training is to help people learn to have more default skepticism with digital (and audio) content that can negatively impact them or the organization.

Founded by IT and data security specialist Stu Sjouwerman, KnowBe4 helps organizations address the human element of security by raising awareness about ransomware, CEO fraud and other social engineering tactics through a new-school approach to awareness training on security. Kevin Mitnick, an internationally recognized cybersecurity specialist and KnowBe4’s Chief Hacking Officer, helped design the KnowBe4 training based on his well-documented social engineering tactics.
