OutThink, the world’s first cybersecurity human risk management platform (SaaS), has been recognised by Gartner as a Representative Provider of Security Behaviour and Culture Programs (SBCP), a huge endorsement of its unique and innovative approach to security awareness and human risk management.
Flavius Plesu, CEO and Founder, commented:
“This award is a powerful endorsement of our technology and team and comes at a time when there is excellent momentum in the business following recent $10 million seed funding. OutThink is disrupting a space characterised by ineffective ‘tick box’ security awareness training solutions and this funding will help us further accelerate our innovation programme and go-to-market plans.”
The OutThink cybersecurity human risk management platform (SaaS) identifies, understands, and manages human risk, by improving employees’ security attitudes and behaviours in modern organisations.
Built by CISOs for CISOs, OutThink is a revolutionary SaaS platform that organisations of any size can use to target the source of 91% of all data breaches – human behaviour. As the world’s first cybersecurity human risk management platform, OutThink combines machine learning, natural language processing and applied psychology to improve employees’ security attitudes and behaviours.
“Security awareness computer-based training services offer a stable set of core capabilities, yet risky employee behaviour persists… As a result, the current (SACBT) market fails to fully deliver on the promise of tangible, scaled and sustained employee behaviour change to reduce cyber risk,” – Innovation Insight on Security Behaviour and Culture Program Capabilities, Gartner, Nov. 16, 2022– Report ID G00776704
“New capabilities are emerging to meet the demand for improved human risk management. These security behaviour and culture programs (SBCP) include capabilities that focus on risk reduction via tangible employee behaviour management. Innovative solutions build their services based on behavioural science principles, and use data analytics and automation to reduce risk exposure via measurable cultural change.” – Innovation Insight on Security Behaviour and Culture Program Capabilities, Gartner, Nov. 16, 2022– Report ID G00776704
The continual growth of cybercrime shows that current approaches to security awareness training have limited impact in tackling cybercrime because they neglect the fact that every individual is different.
Instead of treating human behaviour – which is the cause of 91% of data breaches worldwide – as the problem, OutThink treats it as the solution.
By innovatively leveraging machine learning, natural language processing and applied psychology, OutThink is able to measure the attitudes, intentions and sentiments of individuals within an organisation. The platform combines this human intelligence with data from integrated Microsoft Defender and Sentinel to identify poor security behaviours and deliver targeted, intelligent training – via email, Slack or Microsoft Teams (another world first!) – that not only educates but also listens to and learns from people (human sensors).
OutThink is not only a representative provider of security behaviour and culture solutions, in the November 2022 Gartner Report, but it’s also the highest-rated security awareness solution in the January 2021 Gartner Peer Insights Report.
Matt Slater, CTO, commented: “We’re excited to be at the forefront of this revolution and look forward to continuing to empower organisations to take a proactive approach to manage human risk.”
