SC Magazine Award Winner
Security market leader Global Learning Systems (GLS) heads into new and exciting areas of technology after becoming an SC Magazine Award winner for Best IT Security-Related Training Program in 2017. It also was named a leader in Gartner Inc.’s October 2016 Magic Quadrant for the second year in a row!
SC Magazine is well known in its field, so it was particularly gratifying to have GLS’s “focus on overall client satisfaction” and “measuring success using its products and services,” recognized in the prominent magazine. The award was presented during the 21st annual SC Awards Gala on Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2017, produced by SC Media. GLS President, Larry Cates said, “We are pleased that the industry is recognizing the value of the GLS Human Firewall® program to raise user awareness of today’s cyber security threats and create a positive behavior change environment for our customers.” Last year the company was also one of five finalists in the same award category.
Gartner’s acknowledgement of GLS was the second year of being recognized for the company’s overall ability to execute and its completeness of vision within the Security Awareness Computer-Based Training (CBT) market. Cates said that the company “works hard to ensure the integrity of our courses and to grow our offerings so that they keep pace with the increased threat to computer security. We will continue our efforts to thwart would-be hackers and disrupters.” These are exciting times for GLS as it continues to push the edges of security awareness, and strengthen the digital defenses of all its valuable clients by offering value-added technology and training. Clients are able to choose among numerous offerings in all areas of security awareness courses, best practice modules and videos, and can put together topics that are tailored to meet the requirements of their organizations.
