BOTHELL, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 28, 2018--MediaPRO, the leading provider of security and privacy awareness solutions built to reduce human risk, today announced that Gartner has named it a Leader in the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training 1 for the fifth-consecutive year.

Gartner researched, analyzed and evaluated 13 different vendors based on evaluation criteria, positioning MediaPRO as a Leader. According to Gartner, “The security education CBT Leaders quadrant is composed of vendors that: (1) provide solutions that are a good match to market requirements; (2) have been the most successful in building a customer base and revenue stream within the CBT market; and (3) have relatively high viability (due to CBT revenue). In addition to providing CBT that is a good match to customer requirements, Leaders also show evidence of superior vision and execution for anticipated requirements. Leaders have a demonstrable track record of content revision and expansion to meet market requirements. They have demonstrated positive customer feedback for effective CBT and related services, as well as focusing intently on anticipating market needs and evolving accordingly.”

“We are proud to be named a Leader for the fifth consecutive time,” MediaPRO CEO Tyler Winkler said. “We believe that our positioning as a Leader is a recognition of our commitment to deliver dynamic security awareness and phishing solutions to businesses and organizations of any size. From our perspective, our team has made significant strides to ensure we are continuously delivering a top-notch training experience that changes risky-behavior, increases knowledge retention and delivers measurable results.”
