InfoSec Institute Named in 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Security Awareness CBT

The InfoSec Institute has developed an extensive library of training material on cybersecurity and helps security professionals attain qualifications to improve their career prospects. The company has also developed a platform for businesses to use to improve their defenses against phishing attacks and other threats that target employees.

The firm’s SecurityIQ training platform combines an extensive library of training material and a phishing simulation solution within a single platform. After training the workforce, businesses can use phishing simulations to discover how effective their training has been. The simulations help businesses identify areas of weakness that can be tackled with further training. The platform now includes more than 300 training modules and over 1,000 phishing templates based on real-world phishing scenarios.

The company has been rated a Top 20 Training Company and has received an award for excellence at the Info Security Product Guide annual Global Excellence Awards for Security Training & Education.

The Madison, WI-based firm has recently received another accolade to add to its recent tally of awards. The SecurityIQ platform has been named in the 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training.

To be named in the Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice, a company must demonstrate excellence in a specific field, which is measured by the volume and quality of customer ratings. The InfoSec Institute was included after receiving 80 positive, verified client reviews, achieving an average of 4.7 stars out of 5.

The SecurityIQ platform was highly rated on ease of use, the extensive range of training material, the ease of creating custom content tailored, and its excellent customer service.

“We’re thrilled our clients named us a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training,” said Jack Koziol, InfoSec Institute CEO. “With over 30 vendors in this space, we believe it’s an honor to receive this distinction.”
