We often get many of the same questions about the Elevate Security platform: How does Elevate differ from other cybersecurity platforms? How does it work? Who is it best suited for?
It’s time to set the record straight. Here are our most frequently asked questions, answered.
What is Elevate Security?
Elevate Security is a cloud-based risk intelligence platform that helps you identify your riskiest users and take action in minimizing the likelihood of a security incident.
What makes Elevate Security different from other cybersecurity companies?
The Elevate Security platform was built on the notion that roughly 8% of users cause 80% of security incidents. It’s the leading all-in-one platform specifically designed to help you safeguard your organization from unintentional insider risk.
What are Elevate Security’s core products and services?
Our platform includes 3 distinct solutions that leverage risk intelligence to provide you with a multi-layered defense against insider threats.
Elevate Engage puts past actions and behaviors into context with human risk scorecards for each of your employees. With the ability to send out tailored communications (or ‘nudges’) to anyone in your organization, you can build a positive cybersecurity culture without wasting precious time and resources on ineffective, one-size-fits-all training.
Elevate Identity integrates risk intelligence into your IAM and IGA systems so you can make informed access decisions on an individual basis. With the ability to set conditional access policies or completely revoke access from any user at any time, you can stop threat actors in their tracks.
Elevate Control aids your SecOps team in accelerating incident triage and response with customizable playbooks that automatically apply stricter email, web, and endpoint controls.
What industries or sectors does Elevate Security primarily serve?

How does Elevate Security measure and assess an organization’s security awareness?
Elevate looks for verified risk signals from each of your employees, including malware downloads, phishing clicks, and visits to unsecure websites.
Based on this data, our platform generates a human risk scorecard for each of your employees, giving you the insights needed to motivate positive behavior change.
From there, you can provide real-time feedback when an employee clicks on something they shouldn’t and assign tailored training that addresses their weaknesses.
How does Elevate Security leverage behavioral science in its approach to cybersecurity?
Elevate Security employs a technique from behavioral economics called a ‘nudge’. The purpose of a nudge is to encourage individuals to make better choices by gently guiding their decision-making process while preserving their freedom of choice.
Elevate layers 4 different types of context-aware nudges to promote a positive cybersecurity culture, including:
- Personalized security scores help employees gauge their performance and identify areas for improvement.
- Feedback and recommendations encourage employees to refine their security habits continuously.
- Benchmarking fosters competition and promotes better security practices through social norms.
- Gamification makes security training more engaging and motivating through rewards, recognition, and competition.
What types of threats and risks does Elevate Security’s platform help organizations mitigate?
Elevate Security was created to defend against unintentional insider risk and social engineering attacks. This includes preventing your employees from clicking on a malicious link in the first place, while also stopping a threat actor from getting any further when they’ve breached a system.
98% of cyberattacks involve social engineering, but those attacks are successful by exploiting a small minority of victims. By solving for the human element at a granular level, Elevate Security gives you the tools to drastically improve the security posture of your most vulnerable attack vector.
Is Elevate Security suitable for small businesses, or is it primarily aimed at larger enterprises?
Our platform is ideal for larger enterprises who need quick, reliable, and actionable insights on the security behaviors of their entire workforce—Elevate Security helps them do this at scale.
How does Elevate Security stay updated with the latest cybersecurity threats and trends to ensure its solutions are effective?
Our founders, Robert Fly and Masha Sedova, are also heavily involved in industry events throughout the year. You can even catch them talking to some of the brightest minds in cybersecurity on the Friendly Fire Podcast.
Does Elevate Security offer integration capabilities with other cybersecurity tools and platforms?
Elevate Security integrates with all standard SecOps technologies, like SIEM, SOAR, and Case Management systems.
