Arctic Wolf’s acquisition of Habitu8
is a bold step forward in advancing security awareness training programs as attacks like phishing and credential theft continue to thrive. With 85% of attacks against organizations starting with human error, it’s perhaps not surprising that we continue to see low-quality, antiquated, and severely dated content recycled through organizations.
Too many businesses tend to view security training more as an annual, check-the-box requirement versus an opportunity to truly engage employees and users through ongoing microlearning.
This disparity signals a larger effectiveness issue we often talk about in cybersecurity. Social engineering campaigns targeting the human vector continue to gain momentum, while the content—and content strategy—used for security awareness training has not kept pace with the demands and expectations of modern users. It’s time to change the game.
Hollywood-Style Awareness Content That Actually Works
With the addition of Habitu8 and the deep industry expertise of company co-founder Jason Hoenich, Arctic Wolf is combining the power of Arctic Wolf Managed Security Awareness® and Habitu8’s award-winning content model. The result will be a robust and continuous library of live action and animated training content, produced and delivered in a style that viewers have come to expect from leading content platforms like Netflix.
By following those same consumer-grade quality standards, Arctic Wolf Managed Security Awareness will deliver ongoing and engaging training content that actually makes a difference. And it will be backed by the Arctic Wolf Concierge Security® Team, who works side-by-side with customers to deploy the Arctic Wolf® Platform and provide broad visibility across endpoint, network, cloud, and human threat surfaces.
