One of the report’s findings is that the days when training solutions were used to solely meet compliance requirements are almost over. “While this remains the most human-centric market in the cybersecurity space, this human focus is no longer as simplistic as training humans,” notes the report, authored by Jinan Budge. “Some SA&T vendors are disrupting the market by shifting their human focus to measure the human risk, based on humans’ actual behaviors or sentiments about security. By doing so, they have the ability to not only train people, but demonstrate how changes in behavior reduce actual cybersecurity incidents”.
SoSafe was listed in the “comprehensive security awareness and training” (SA&T) functionality segment. Comprehensive SA&T providers have high functionality in training customization, as well as in reporting capability and behavioral coverage. According to the report, comprehensive SA&T vendors “focus on awareness, training, education, and phishing (…). Many are now extending their offerings to include excellent content, data-driven human risk quantification, security culture profiling, or a combination of these.”
“We are very proud and excited about the Forrester listing. From day one, we at SoSafe have always believed that insights from behavioral psychology are critical to a new generation of security awareness training. Our solution puts people’s needs first and makes human risk measurable. For example, our e-learning modules include deeply integrated gamification to further motivate the users. With this, our customers increase their user participation by more than 40 percent. Ultimately, employees become part of a strong human firewall, enhancing their organization’s security culture,” says Dr. Niklas Hellemann, psychologist and Managing Director of SoSafe.
