San Antonio, TX July 29, 2021 – Human cyber risk and awareness company AwareGO announced today that it has been named as a Representative Vendor in the 2021 Gartner® Market Guide for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training (SACBT).  According to this report, “The representative vendors listed in Gartner’s Market Guide have a generally available (GA) offering at the time of publication that is specifically designed to provide end-user SACBT services.” [1]

Among the key findings noted in this report  point to the fact that “the human element (85%) continued to be a primary catalyst for data breaches over the last 12 months, with phishing accounting for 36% of breaches.” The reports adds, “Security awareness is more than phishing simulation and computer-based training.”

“We believe that the companies and cybersecurity leaders choose AwareGO solutions when they want to tackle the missing link to their cybersecurity efforts – humans,” said Neil Butchart, General Manager, North America. “AwareGO offers a transformative solution for managing the human risk factor of cybersecurity. Built by security experts and behavioral scientists AwareGO helps identify, and quantify the human risk factor, and remediate it with behavior-changing micro-learning content.” 

Additionally, the report notes “managed security awareness service providers are becoming more commonplace. They assist organizations in orchestrating many elements of a security awareness training program in the absence of employees dedicated to security awareness.”

To the this end, AwareGO recognizes that more and more Managed Security Services Providers as well as Security Information and Event Management and Security Orchestration, Automation and Response Solutions are choosing to augment their cybersecurity services portfolio thus open new revenue streams or increasing new ones to address the missing link to cybersecurity strategies, that being humans. Today the company offers these providers the AwareGO Human Risk Assessment  for early detection of targeted attacks and data breaches and AwareGO Security Awareness Microlearning to complement their response technologies.

This is also the case among security leaders including enterprise CISOs when it comes to ensuring compliance, the overall cyber resilience of the company as well as to ​​assess and automatically retro-feed and influence the training agenda and frequency on the individual level.

Cybersecurity awareness is ongoing and AwareGO’s solutions provide today’s enterprises with engaging and relatable training for employees that won’t interfere with productivity and workflows.
