Hoxhunt integrated seamlessly into the Microsoft environment and demonstrated superior human risk reduction in an apples-to-apples benchmark comparison with Avanade’s existing SAT software. Using behavioral science principles, data analytics and AI automation, Hoxhunt enabled Avanade to enhance real threat detection rates and capabilities while saving up-to 5 FTEs of SOC analysts a month.Read case study
“We were a small security team tasked with building up security capabilities very quickly, and Hoxhunt has been extremely useful for us. The response platform is a force multiplier that does the initial triage for us without us having to scale out a massive team to look at every email being reported to us by our well-trained employees.”
“Hoxhunt provided a one-stop solution for security awareness, behavior change, and human risk management, including a phishing reporting process. We introduced the Hoxhunt button for users to report suspicious emails, which improved the reporting results to unprecedented levels. Previously, people were supposed to use our ticketing system, which was cumbersome, and many suspicious emails went unreported.”
This product is just way, way ahead of anything else out there and nothing else has come close… It's been a great journey with Hoxhunt, and it's been ticking all the boxes we wanted it to, and more. There's so many benefits that Hoxhunt has given us that we didn't even imagine were possible.”
The end goal is a cultural shift, which means that a cybersecurity awareness program should be more ambitious than just creating awareness. It should lead to behavior change. To accomplish this, we found the perfect partner in Hoxhunt. The combination of gamification, a personal and automated learning experience, and efficient incident response capabilities makes Hoxhunt stand head and shoulders above the competition.
Hoxhunt raises awareness through the whole company and is incredibly easy for admins and for employees to use
What Hoxhunt is doing is bringing the power of human intelligence into the security stack, and not just as a passive last line of defence.
The fact that we rolled out Hoxhunt one and a half years ago and it's still being used so much is a great outcome. For us, the fact that people still say, “I love Hoxhunt phishing simulations!” is the best statistic of all.
Hoxhunt touches both IT and HR: IT for the intelligence from the simulations, HR because it touches every employee.
Hoxhunt has helped us push our resilience into new territory, with our resilience ratio jumping up by over 2000 percent. Hoxhunt has helped us surpass anything our legacy SAT tools could deliver.
“The most important part that Hoxhunt improves is the people part, and those processes and technologies that cost a lot are almost useless when people are the greatest source of risk.”
“Our defenses are as weak as the weakest point. Hence we decided and managed to train and test 100% of our staff. Hoxhunt's self-service approach allowed us to reach this objective and make sure that our staff builds a wall around our assets rather than open doors and windows.”
“Before Hoxhunt, we didn’t know what kinds of spam and phishing emails our users were getting. But now, with Hoxhunt, it’s a game changer because we tell employees to report all suspicious emails. This gives us visibility into ongoing real phishing campaigns so we can react with activities like URL blocking and IP address blacklisting. "
Our awareness results and human threat intelligence helps drive our board reporting and security strategy. As our employees began reporting more and more real threats, we realized we were developing a human sensor network.
Our own internal metrics and a phishing benchmark we conducted with other large companies in the DACH region empirically validates that the Hoxhunt training method clearly surpasses traditional solutions in terms of effectiveness.
The product matches my life philosophy, which is that people learn from stimulating, positive behavior... I get a lot of positive feedback from management and from employees who really like the program.
The switch to gamification and a carrot approach was really well embraced. And along with the broader education on real-world threats and insights into our own real threat reporting, I think the Hoxhunt training program has been received incredibly well.
“I think the training just speaks for itself. The simulations are really well made and people learn from them. We are really happy with how it’s going.”
In IT and security, we have way too much to do, and keeping up with security is such a big job. Security people are hard to find and we don’t want the ones we have to sit and administrate a system like this; we want them to work on security. You could look at Hoxhunt as a completely outsourced awareness training service
When I pull my monthly stats for reporting, part of what I’m pulling is how many TOTAL simulations went to just our active employees, and it’s always over 10,000 and that’s a shocking number.
I would definitely recommend Hoxhunt to other CISOs and I have already. Hoxhunt has gone well beyond the traditional check-a-box mentality of passive e-learning. There has definitely been a change in our security culture since we started using Hoxhunt.
"Of our 9,000 participants, 60.9% are active users... The fail rate is 3.7%, but it has been decreasing steadily to our goal of 2%."
Ramboll decided to work with Hoxhunt for its ability to deliver education to employees that is interactive, personalized, and integrated into their everyday workflow.
"We've seen what's possible if you make the experience for the user engaging and interesting, and make them a participant and not just a recipient. That really helps with engagement, and it drives trust in the security team, which I think is very important."
"I’ve got nothing but positive things to say about Hoxhunt... I really think that we’ve hit a chord with people."
"We are very happy with the results. The goal is to keep people aware that you’ve got to be careful with every email you receive, and I think Hoxhunt is achieving this very well."
"We can find and remove email related threats reported by users, and react immediately to clicked malicious links."

Within 12 months, TomTom achieved compliance and demonstrated measurable human risk reduction with a strategic focus on phishing, security behavior change training, and human risk management.
Hoxhunt shifted training from the legacy SAT model to a personalized learning journey focused on good cyber-behavior: threat reporting. Enabled by AI, the platform was easy to use for the admins, and the gamified content was enjoyable for employees. Engagement rates and positive feedback soared, as did real threat detection, proving that behavior had indeed been changed and risk of phishing breaches was being reduced.
The 20,000 employee enterprise scaled their security behavior change, overloading their threat feed, until the Hox Response platform automated 3 full-time SOC equivalents, and accelerated incident response.
