Washington, DC | July 18, 2019 – Global Learning Systems (GLS), a leading provider of security awareness and compliance training programs, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Top 5 for Ability to Execute in the Magic Quadrant for Security Awareness Computer-based Training. This marks the fifth consecutive year GLS has been recognized in this report.

Achieving a position in the Gartner Magic Quadrant serves as an objective reference for organizations seeking vendors that will meet their security awareness training needs. Meeting the objectives set by Gartner can demonstrate that a vendor’s offering is tailored to the real needs of the market.

“GLS is pleased to have been recognized by Gartner for the 5th year. We feel it demonstrates how GLS’ 30 years of behavior change experience helps us stand out from the crowd,” said Larry Cates, CEO of GLS. “Our clients turn to us year after year for innovative security awareness programs that engage learners, reinforce cyber safe behaviors and protect the organization…without breaking the bank!”

Last year Global Learning Systems launched its new Human Firewall 2.0™ program to provide a flexible and extensible framework for security awareness training. With this framework, customers assess learners’ knowledge and select topic-specific program blocks accordingly. Each block contains the training and reinforcement materials needed to make a lasting impact on behavior. GLS specialists provide strategy and guidance throughout an organization’s security awareness journey to ensure the program is targeted and effective.

According to Amy Holloway, GLS’ Director of Product, “We believe our continued recognition in the Gartner Magic Quadrant is a testament to the benefits of our approach. The Human Firewall 2.0 is designed to target today’s biggest human risk factors with a proven combination of motivational communications and engaging training that truly moves the needle on secure behavior. And, the framework allows us to constantly adapt our product to meet evolving threats and add variety to the learning experience, without requiring our customers to make changes to their overall implementation plans.”
