As stated in the 2023 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 74 percent of breaches occur due to human risk, most often derived from social engineering exploits. This partnership between Hoxhunt and Kite will help UK companies reduce their cyber-risk at its greatest source, the human layer. Hoxhunt’s security behaviour change technology is uniquely positioned to reduce organisations’ human-related risk with automated programs that combine artificial intelligence (AI), behavioural science, game mechanics, and individualised and adaptive learning paths, to change attitudes towards risk with minimal operational effort.

“It is our policy to rigorously road test any product that we consider adding to our portfolio as we are highly selective with who we ultimately offer,” said Stuart Nairne-Clark, Business Development Director at Kite Distribution. “Having put Hoxhunt’s technology through its paces and compared it with market alternatives, we realised the full breadth and depth of the company’s security behaviour change capabilities that fill a strategically important cybersecurity market gap. We have seen an increasing demand for solutions which can more accurately and effectively mitigate human risk in recent times, and we look forward to partnering with Hoxhunt to meet this demand.”
