The Magic Quadrant recognized GLS for its overall ability to execute and completeness of vision within the Security Awareness Computer-Based Training market.
The four categories in the quadrant include niche players, challengers, visionaries, and leaders. According to the Magic Quadrant description for Leaders states that “The security education CBT Leaders quadrant is 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 target education and behavior management. They also have demonstrated positive customer feedback for effective CBT and related services.”
