Security Innovation Named a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Awareness Training

For second year in a row, the company maintains regal position with unique ability to deliver role-based training to general staff and developers.

October 27, 2015 – Security Innovation, a cybersecurity provider specializing in securing critical platforms, announced today that it has once again been positioned by Gartner, Inc. as a Leader in the 2015 Magic Quadrant for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training. 

The report evaluated 22 global security training firms based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute, and specifically pointed out the following:

  • “Security Innovation's use of diverse media, mixed duration, interactivity and changing visuals in modules enhances the uptake and retention of new skills”
  • “[Security Innovation] offers an extensive curriculum focused on PCI DSS compliance.
  • “Security Innovation provides LMS as a service, with extensive data analysis and reporting capabilities.”
  • “[Security Innovation’s] CBT is packaged in modules of varying lengths (from two to 30 minutes) and is supported with multimedia materials, such as newsletters, posters and job aids in 11 languages.”

The company’s education portfolio comprises over 120 highly interactive and situational Computer-Based-Training (CBT) courses for all roles, skills levels and technologies. Courses range from security awareness end-user training to deep and broad technical content for IT and software development staff. Unique in the industry, Security Innovation offers PCI training modules co-branded with the PCI Security Standards Council. Additionally, Security Innovation recently partnered with PhishLine and the two companies are working on an integrated technology solution to provide learning at the moment of need (when a user is a victim of a successful phishing attempt).

“As organizations realize their staff pose significant risk to their enterprise, they are seeking specialized awareness training for each role” said Ed Adams, CEO of Security Innovation. “Our leadership position reinforces our ability to drive meaningful behavioral change and help organizations reduce risk via a more informed work staff.”

Security Innovation has licensed more than one million courses and averages 7-10 new courses per year. In addition to a robust security training platform, Security Innovation offers pre-and post assessment evaluations to ensure learners are placed into appropriate courses. The company’s Customer Success team helps ensure successful rollout of security awareness programs and provides continued support to help customers optimize their training programs long-term.
