Gartner, Inc. has recognized Terranova Security as a Security Awareness Program Platforms Representative Vendor in its
Terranova Security received the distinction as a vendor in a market that includes ready-to-use, interactive software modules. The effectiveness of the Terranova Security Awareness Platform is based on its high-quality content, scalable reporting, corporate integration possibilities, and the ability to evaluate training effectiveness across an end user population.
These capabilities come together in the interest of helping global organizations tackle some of the biggest challenges for information security training programs, especially measuring security awareness activities, tailoring messaging for different audiences, and building a security-centric culture.
“We believe this recognition by Gartner reflects our commitment to delivering an engaging, informative, and effective security awareness training experience to organizations around the world,” said Lise Lapointe, author and CEO of Terranova Security.
“We think it also underlines our ongoing mission to reduce the human risk factor in cyber security by positively changing user behavior through impactful training programs and anti-phishing initiatives,” she added.
Other major market drivers highlighted in the 2020 Gartner Market Guide include the ability for organizations to adapt to the fundamental changes in the workforce, most notably a spike in location-based workforce disruptions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Within the past year, we have been faced with both the COVID-19 global pandemic and significant global economic instability and uncertainty, “said Gartner. “A natural by-product of changes in normal work location and normal work operations is the requirement to accurately and effectively communicate what these changes mean to end users across the organization, and any resulting security implications.”
In practice, ensuring that employees possess the knowledge needed to avoid COVID-19-based phishing scams and protect confidential organization data while working remotely is crucial to a successful transition.
“People directly affect security outcomes more than technology, policies or processes,” added Gartner. “The market for [SACBT] remains driven by the recognition that perfect cybersecurity protection is not possible, resulting in people frequently on the front lines of potential security incidents. Individuals’ awareness of potential security concerns relates directly to their behaviors when challenged by adversaries.”
The Market Guide also mentions Terranova Security officially joining forces with Microsoft in 2020. Terranova Security and Microsoft are working together to bundle high-quality security awareness training content for enterprise solutions, which will help bring an evidence-based, measurable training approach to organizations and their end users.
