News : New eSentire Security Awareness Training Combines Microlearning and Gamification
Cambridge, ON June 23, 2016 -- eSentire, Inc., a provider in Active Threat Protection solutions, launched eSentire Training Day™, an adaptive, gamified, and fully-mobile security awareness training solution that effectively arms employees against the latest social engineering, spear-phishing attacks, and more.
"Cyberattacks are on the rise and employees, all the way up to senior management, remain a significant vulnerability within every organization," said J.Paul Haynes, CEO of eSentire. "Looking at the results from hundreds of phishing campaigns we conducted, across thousands of users, almost 19% either clicked or opened an attachment contained in a spear-phishing attempt. Anyone can easily fall victim to an attack if they aren’t fully up-to-date on current tactics, but much of this can be overcome with a successful training program like eSentire Training Day."
Built on Axonify, an employee knowledge platform, eSentire’s cybersecurity curriculum was developed from attacks and techniques observed by the company’s frontline security analysts. The cloud-based solution is accessible from anywhere, with an engaging mobile experience compatible with most smartphones, and on the desktop.
"Today’s employees are inherently busy and have different knowledge bases and skill sets, which is why traditional online cybersecurity training solutions don’t cut it," said Mark McArdle, CTO of eSentire. "eSentire Training Day recognizes and helps overcome these obstacles by tracking an employee’s existing knowledge on a topic and automatically adapting the learning experience to help them achieve mastery. This will effectively help organizations move beyond simply achieving a ‘pass’ in compliance, to an ‘A+’ on the bigger picture – improving their overall security posture."
