AwareGO is proud to be named as a Representative Vendor in Gartner’s 2020 Market Guide for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training. According to the report:
AwareGO is named in two places in the report. First in the Security Awareness Training Market Dynamics section where our partnership with Trend Micro is noted. Second, Gartner named AwareGO in the Security Awareness Content Development and Delivery Systems category of their report.
This category, according to Gartner:
At AwareGO, we believe we do both; create compelling content and offer a complete and innovative computer-based training platform to distribute that content in an easily manageable and measurable way.
AwareGO has a state of the art, API friendly architectural software that enables a variety of connections with other platforms. It already offers integration with Slack, SharePoint and other corporate learning systems. AwareGO might still be relatively small in numbers but our solutions are big and we are aiming high.
Among the key findings in Gartner’s report are that “organizations must view security awareness as an ongoing component of their broader information security program, not as simply a technology spend decision or an annual training expense” and “while phishing testing remains the most used method to measure effectiveness of training, it is not the only method an organization should use to measure security awareness effectiveness.”
Gartner recommends to:
Well, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Part of AwareGO’s mission is to educate in a positive way instead of shaming users about cybersecurity issues. Our computer-based training platform offers automations which helps with the continued task of security awareness training as well as meaningful metrics to evaluate an organization’s security awareness. This is all part of AwareGO’s mission to make the world a more cyber secure place.
