BOTHELL, Wash., Nov. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MediaPro announced today it has been named a Leader in the 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training (CBT) Vendors, the third time MediaPro has been recognized.
Gartner has consistently recognized MediaPro for its ability to execute and completeness of vision compared to other vendors, noting MediaPro offers "one of the most flexible integrated content solutions within this market." "We're thrilled to once again be identified as a leader in security, privacy, and compliance training and reinforcement products," said Steve Conrad, MediaPro's founder and managing director. "Being recognized by a trusted benchmark in our industry for a third year in a row is an honor." MediaPro was one of 19 security awareness CBT vendors evaluated as part of the Magic Quadrant, regularly cited as a key deciding factor when choosing security awareness vendors. The announcement of the Magic Quadrant comes on the heels of the release of MediaPro's 2016 State of Privacy and Security Awareness Report, which found that 88 percent of respondents lacked the necessary awareness to stop preventable privacy or security incidents. The report provides yet another data point proving the human threat vector is still largely unsecured, and most organizations don't know whether their employees have the necessary level of data protection awareness to avoid preventable incidents. Earlier this year, MediaPro announced its industry-changing Adaptive Awareness Portal, a cloud-based access to tools and services allowing organizations to analyze their employee-related risks, plan awareness programs, and deploy targeted training and reinforcement on an ongoing basis. Closely aligned with MediaPro's Adaptive Awareness Framework, the Portal enables customers to analyze employee knowledge and behavior, build a risk-based plan, deliver unique courses, and select from an ever-growing library of videos, posters, and games.
