Our Customers Share Their Success Stories
Our comprehensive Security Education Platform makes it easy for our customers to combine their choice of knowledge assessments, simulated attacks, interactive training modules, and security awareness materials to create tailored security awareness and training programs.
We included Wombat's security awareness and training platform in our Cyber Security Program to support us in fulfilling the requirements of the Financial Market Supervisory Authority. Wombat's Continuous Training Methodology was an ideal fit for our organization as it offers the opportunity to perform regular training during the whole year with minimal disruption to normal working activities. Wombat’s web-based solution is also easy to extend and leverage, and our end users have found the tools to be intuitive to handle and use. We liked that there was no software deployment requirement and that it allows us access from everywhere over the internet. In addition, Wombat's support for multiple languages is particularly useful for our multicultural company, and we appreciate that the extensive reporting functionalities allow us to track our efforts and communicate metrics to our stakeholders.
- Leslie Marjoribanks, Customer & Colleague Security Awareness Manager, Royal Bank of Scotland
We have been using Wombat for over two years now and one of the reasons we chose to go with them was not just because we felt the product offered more than their competitors technically, but also because the user education experience had the edge with tone, pace and multinational options. The product itself is constantly evolving, and there’s always something new to offer our colleagues by way of education.
- Roberto Huber, Advisory Security Officer, Avaloq Sourcing (Switzerland & Liechtenstein) SA
After a ransomware attack to our system, we knew that among other things, it was past time for end-user security training. Looking around at training resources to help facilitate the type of education we needed was made a far less daunting task when we discovered Wombat Security Technologies. Instead of having to create our own training materials from our limited knowledge and time, we were able to partner with Wombat to offer our staff a comprehensive security training package.
Since our decision to partner with Wombat, we have experienced far fewer technology security issues and have been able to broaden our staff’s awareness in the area of cybersecurity. We are very satisfied with Wombat’s web solution for security awareness training and hope to keep offering our employees this excellent learning experience.
- Karen Higgs, Director of Technology, North West Hendricks School Corporation, Lizton, Indiana
Since partnering with Wombat, we've seen a significant increase in user awareness and recognition of suspicious emails. Instead of clicking on these messages, our employees are reporting them. Our users have caught and alerted us to more than ten separate phishing attacks, and in the 10 months following the launch of our Wombat training program, we have seen a dramatic decline in infections due to inappropriate email activity. Our partnership with Wombat has been a true success and has helped us to educate inliiduals at all levels of our organization, which we feel is critical to protecting our patients' healthcare information, our employees' data, and our internal networks and systems.
- Senior Manager of IT Operations, Monongahela Valley Hospital, Inc.
We’ve been using Wombat’s PhishAlarm product for some time and can already see the positive impact it’s having on our organization. PhishAlarm easily replaced antiquated suspicious email reporting with a consistent and user friendly process that positively affected employee behavior.
- Senior Cyber Security Analyst, multinational energy company
Typically, any audit is not an enjoyable thing, but in our case we did very well in the security awareness and training section, partly based on our work with the Wombat team. Having metrics to gauge staff was a big plus for the auditors.
- Cyber Security Risk Management Team, international chemical company
We have seen a major reduction in malware infections in our organization, a result we attribute to the Wombat methodology. In November, we had 56 employee computers infected with malware. Later that month, we sent a mock phishing attack to about 18,000 users, followed by in-depth training for employees who fell for the mock phishing message. By February, our malware infections dropped to three users — that’s a nearly 95% reduction! I know this is primarily due to the increased awareness we created with the training.
- A leading international financial services company based in the Midwestern U.S.
We selected Wombat because they offer a comprehensive cyber security preparedness platform. Wombat’s Platform enables us to assess internal risk and target training to employees who need it most, thereby strengthening our security profile. We value the opportunity to collaborate with Wombat as the company continues to expand its suite of cyber security training modules.
- Manager of IT Security and Risk Management, Del Monte Foods
I love the awareness materials portal. We have a few of the posters up around HDQ.
- Security Officer, large international airline
By motivating employees to quickly respond and complete security awareness training means a company’s workforce is armed against the most current attacks. In addition, using automated phishing attacks enables companies to streamline operations, save money, and protect their organization at the same time.
- Manager of IT Security and Disaster Recovery, Fortune 1000 manufacturing company
There have been over 400,000 successful completions of Safer Web Browsing, Password Security, Email Security, and Mobile Device Security training modules. Over 32,000 users completed the Mobile Device Security training module in 2 weeks. This is amazing for non-mandatory training, we have now justified the cost of training with just those 4 modules! We are very happy with our investment.
- Security Awareness and Training Director, large technology company
The account and technical team at Wombat regularly go above and beyond to provide excellent customer service. I am very satisfied with Wombat, its product, and its service.

Companies such as Wombat Security Technologies are experts in the training delivery field, and they specifically provide a market-leading solution for continuous security education that creates employee behavior change. Select a training partner, like Wombat, that dedicates research time and money to identifying current and emerging threats that will be encountered and in delivering scalable solutions that make it easy for training program administrators to assess areas of user knowledge weakness and then target education programs to the subjects and people most at risk.

- David Monahan, Security Analyst at Enterprise Management Associates
In nearly 30 studies over 5 years, Aberdeen’s research has consistently shown that the leading performers were 70% more likely on average than lagging performers to invest in security awareness and education for their end-users. Too often, enterprise investments in technologies are diluted by lack of investment in their people, but the top performers invest proactively in end-user awareness and training as a means to make their end-users informed, accountable and productive.
- Derek Brink, Vice President and Research Fellow , IT Security and IT GRC at Aberdeen Group
The key is not just ‘awareness;’ it is behavior change; as such, interactive security awareness training platforms help compliance managers effectively administer mandated employee education, prove the completion of training in the event of an audit, and actually change the way that employees behave. The result is lower risk for the organization. Companies that employ new interactive cyber security assessment and context aware security training software are reporting reductions in susceptibility to employee-targeted attacks, which translates to fewer breaches and lower remediation costs.
