Pittsburgh, PA –July 28— Wombat Security Technologies (Wombat) today announced that its entire comprehensive, award-winning security awareness and training solution that includes knowledge assessments, mock attacks, and interactive training modules for a continuous training methodology is available in 13 languages. Wombat Security helps security officers deliver a comprehensive, continuous training program by providing all of the software necessary to assess and educate employees, reinforce the right behaviors, and measure overall behavior change.  Numerous multinational organizations are using Wombat to reduce their risk, with proven results showing up to a 46% reduction in malware infections and up to a 90% reduction in successful phishing attacks from the wild. To further enhance its product offering, Wombat has added new features that make it easier for information security officers to create and manage their security programs across all regions.

“We were looking to complement our existing internal security behavior training program, and making use of Wombat Security’s computer-based training content has not only complemented it, but also gave us the insight we needed to redesign the program, making the use of e-learning as our main delivery method,” said the information security awareness officer of a global food and beverage organization.  “The modules are well balanced in content and language coverage as well as brief enough for effective delivery to our employees.  Wombat's program has been well appreciated by participants, who found the training material effective not just for work but in their personal lives as well. After over a year using the content, we have noticed positive results such as an increase of security events reported by employees.”

Wombat’s powerful Security Education Platform is made up of the following products to enable multinational companies to effectively manage their training programs.

  • CyberStrength®– This award-winning, one-of-a-kind, broad knowledge assessment tool now has a library of more than 150 cyber security questions in 13 different languages. Administrators can add their own custom questions in any supported language. CyberStrength is the best starting point for planning and measuring an international security education program.
  • Interactive training modules – All of Wombat’s brief and engaging interactive training modules are available in 13 languages. Each training module is a 10-15 minute interactive session that the user can complete at their own pace.

Trainees can select the language in the training modules that they are most comfortable with.
  • PhishGuru® – Wombat’s phishing simulation service has email phishing templates and Teachable Moments (in-the-moment teaching messages) in 15 different languages that can gauge employee vulnerability and motivate users to take in-depth, follow-up training.
