Gartner’s Magic Quadrant

Washington, DC | November 16, 2018 – 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 “Challengers” Quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Security Awareness Computer-based Training. This marks the fourth consecutive year GLS has been recognized in this arena based on its completeness of vision and ability to execute.

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.

“We consider our positioning in the Security Awareness Computer-based Training Magic Quadrant for the fourth consecutive year as a testament to the strength of our commitment to helping organizations secure their greatest asset—their people,” 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. And, incidentally, that don’t break the bank.”

Global Learning Systems recently 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 it’s this kind of approach that’s kept us in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for four years. We’re constantly adapting our product to meet evolving threats, while recognizing that clients want choices and high-touch service as they implement their multi-year training plans.”
