I have requested permission from my director to run this and am waiting for approval.  Approval may take a while, but will definitely post once approved and tested. 

Knowbe4 products work really well and their customer support is amazing.  Our company is currently using their phishing campaign products and helps our users be more knowledgeable.

I finally got approval and ran the tests yesterday.  Surprisingly, Malwarebytes was less vulnerable than McAfee ENS.  Malwarebytes and Windows Defender blocked a lot of the files at first and you have to whitelist a few safe files for the program to successfully run.  What specifics are you wanting?
