Wombat Security Announces Enhanced CyberStrength Assessment Solution to Assess Security Knowledge Across All Threat Areas

New Solution Automates and Streamlines Process for Administrators to Assess Employee Knowledge on Key Security Concerns Covering All Threat Vectors

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwired - October 28, 2015) - Wombat Security Technologies (Wombat), the leading provider of security awareness training solutions that change employee behavior, today announced the launch of seven Predefined CyberStrength® Knowledge Assessments, enhancing their popular CyberStrength product to help streamline cyber security evaluations for administrators of employee awareness and training programs.

CISOs, CSOs, and their infosec teams face mounting pressure to gauge and address susceptibilities within their organizations. Services like simulated phishing attacks help identify vulnerability, however, they do not measure knowledge and only address one threat vector. Wombat's CyberStrength product is a customizable knowledge assessment with more than 150 pre-written cyber security scenario-based questions translated into 12 languages. It allows organizations to look across all threat areas, and the new predefined assessments give administrators an effective, efficient way to evaluate knowledge about other significant and pervasive cyber security threats. The product offers a comprehensive evaluation process for companies to assess and improve the current level of security knowledge.

Wombat's seven Predefined CyberStrength assessments include 10 to 15 evaluation questions about each of key threat vectors, including phishing, passwords and other security safeguards, mobile devices and security outside the office, online safety, protecting personal data, and PHI and PCI DSS compliance.

"We know the importance of awareness and training initiatives, but we also know that security teams battle time and resource constraints on a daily basis," said Joe Ferrara, President and CEO Wombat Security. "By adding predefined assessments to our award winning CyberStrength product, we've streamlined the employee evaluation and training process for our customers. These are the types of enhancements we continually seek, and I think it's a good example of why we've been recognized by Gartner as a leader in the security awareness and training market."

Wombat's Predefined CyberStrength assessments offer "click and go" type functionality, simplifying planning and delivery of targeted assessments and education. Administrators have the flexibility to set a proficiency score for each assessment, and choose the module(s) they'd like to assign for follow-up training. Using Wombat's Auto-Enrollment feature, they can automatically send a training assignment to any user who falls below the predetermined proficiency score.

The enhanced CyberStrength product is available today. Anyone interested in learning more should contact sales@wombatsecurity.com.
