Security Innovation, a respected solution provider in IT Security Assessment and Training since 2002, today announced that it has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant of Gartner, Inc.’s “Magic Quadrant for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training (CBT) Vendors*.” The report evaluated global security training firms, and recognized Security Innovation as a leader based on its combined “ability to execute” and “completeness of vision.”

Leaders in the Magic Quadrant “are composed of vendors that: (1) Provide solutions that are a good match to market requirements; (2) have been the most successful in building a customer base and revenue stream within the CBT market; and (3) have a relatively high viability rating (due to CBT revenue). In addition to providing CBT that is a good match to customer requirements, Leaders also show evidence of superior vision and execution for anticipated requirements. They typically have relatively high market share and/or strong revenue growth, and provide a range of CBT capabilities that targets education and behavior management.” Security Innovation has licensed more than one million security training courses and has consistently achieved revenue growth that surpasses IT security industry growth rates.

Security Innovation was positioned the furthest for completeness of vision. We believe Security Innovation exemplifies this vision by helping organizations implement the activities and objectives that elevate security competence and motivate employees to make informed security decisions. The company’s education portfolio comprises over 100 interactive CBT courses that range from foundational security awareness training to deep and broad technical content for IT and Development Staff. Security Innovation’s CBT is complemented by multimedia materials, such as newsletters, posters and other supplemental assets, and its cloud-based LMS (learning management system) offers extensive data analysis and reporting capabilities.

"Security Innovation has earned a reputation for being a trusted information and application security advisor to their clients by delivering world-class services and products over the past decade,” said Stan Black, CSO of Citrix Corporation. “This is reflected keenly in their training solutions, which help organizations build a culture of security.”

“We are committed to strengthening our customers’ ability to defend itself against cyber security threats” said Ed Adams, President and CEO of Security Innovation. “Education focused on changing employee behavior is an effective method, if done properly. Security Innovation’s high market share and strong revenue growth are testaments to our ability to provide a range of training content that supports this behavior modification.”
