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:

“includes vendors offering unique approaches to developing compelling security awareness content, or an innovative approach to delivery or distribution of security awareness training content to end users across the organization. Some of these vendors also have OEM relationships or partnerships where other providers might redistribute and resell their training content.”

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.

Computer-based training is helpful to minimize the human factor when it comes to cyber security

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:

“build security awareness programs around platforms that offer diverse, contextually appropriate content and innovative delivery capabilities, and that measure success through meaningful metrics.” Furthermore, Gartner states that “end-user-focused security awareness is a rapidly evolving market. Demand is fueled by the needs of security and risk management (SRM) leaders to help influence the behaviors that affect the security of employees, citizens and consumers. Ideally, positive influence will result in progress toward an overall corporate culture that is security-aware and rewards understanding of potential security issues.”

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.
