Our disruptive approach to security awareness

Our vision is to strengthen self-defense in a digital and connected world. By putting people first and inventing impactful products, we help our customers sustainably manage their human risk.

Powered by behavioral science

Checking compliance boxes is important. But there is more to it: In order to close the largest gap in security – the human layer – and effectively reduce risks, we employ modern psychological techniques that drive behavioral change.

Putting people first

If it’s fun, it works. We believe that engagement is the north star when scaling security cultures. That’s why we are laser-focused on building a product that users love!

Taking the customer’s view

Security professionals are very busy individuals nowadays. We are listening to our customers and are constantly developing our platform further to deliver unparalleled impact at low effort.


Pioneers in behavioral science and learning psychology

In our product organization, over 30% of team members come from a background in social science or psychology. This isn't just a random fact, it's a key element of our approach: It helps us infuse each product with insights about human behavior.
