Helsinki, Sept. 30 – Hoxhunt is proud to have been selected as a Fall 2021 award winner in the Best-of Phishing Simulation and Testing category by leading cybersecurity analysis platform, Expert Insights.
“It was a very pleasant surprise that Expert Insights recognized Hoxhunt as a leading phishing awareness training platform, as we continue our mission to lower organizations’ risk of a breach at their most vulnerable point of attack,” said Mika Aalto, co-Founder and CEO of Hoxhunt. “We aren’t yet the biggest vendor, but we are proud to be the best in terms of product, technology, and service. It’s taken tireless effort and bold innovation to turn cybersecurity into a positive and personalized user experience.”
The Expert Insights award comes hot on the heels of Hoxhunt being distinguished by inclusion in the 2021 Gartner Market Guide for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training (SACBT), which provides businesses a comprehensive overview of the defining features of good solutions. Security awareness vendor competition is stiff these days, which is unsurprising considering the growing threat landscape vendors are confronting. The cybersecurity industry as a whole has been booming accordingly, to the tune of $12.2 billion in funding in 2021 already through September according to Venture Beat, with average company valuations skyrocketing to $524.1 million.
“We do what we do to help people and enterprises fight the good fight against cybercriminals,” said Mika Aalto. “I’m glad we’re not alone in this space. The competition has motivated us to jump lightyears ahead with the machine learning and AI technology necessary to power our patented personalized training approach. We will keep innovating to equip users with the skills they need to defend themselves against the cyberattacks of today and tomorrow.”About Expert Insights Expert Insights is an online publication with editorial and technical teams in the UK and US covering cybersecurity and cloud-based business technologies.
