London/Ireland – 23 February 2018 – Cyber Risk Aware, a provider of cyber security awareness education and phishing simulation solutions, which assess the level of human cyber risk in businesses, has announced that it has appointed e92plus as its sole UK distributor. A key objective for e92plus is to support Cyber Risk Aware as it continues to build its market presence, and to drive new business opportunities by recruiting channel partners.
Established in January 2016, Cyber Risk Aware provides user-friendly integrated security awareness training, including cyber knowledge assessment quizzes, and a simulated phishing platform. The company now has a user base of thousands, helping organisations of all sizes to protect against cyber-crime by educating employees on how to identify cyber threats.
Cyber Risk Aware has grown significantly over the past two years and the appointment of e92plus is a key milestone in its plans to ramp up sales over the coming years. Its solutions provide excellent opportunities for resellers to capitalise on new revenue streams, as more companies develop a ‘security-aware’ culture. e92plus will focus on partner recruitment with resellers and managed service providers, and lead generation to drive sales.
Stephen Burke, CEO of Cyber Risk Aware comments: “This is the start of a significant strategic partnership as we focus on scaling up our UK operations and building new revenue opportunities through the channel. We’re looking forward to working together with e92plus which has a strong track record in generating business as well as providing specialist security expertise and marketing support. This made them the clear choice of partner for us and means we are well positioned for further growth.”
He continues “The commercial potential is significant: the human factor in protecting against cyber security cannot be underestimated as staff are actively being targeted, daily, by cyber criminals through sophisticated phishing attacks. Our aim is to help organisations reduce the risk of cyber incidents through their own ‘human’ firewall, empowering employees to be the first line of defence against these cyber threats.”
CEO of e92plus, Mukesh Gupta comments: “The cybersecurity market is one of the fastest growing sectors, and organisations need to focus on the biggest threat vector – human error is responsible for 95% of cyber-crime events. It’s essential to move the workforce from being a vulnerability to becoming the first line of defence, and education and insight is essential. Cyber Risk Aware’s solution is very simple to deploy and use, and provides continual assessment and intervention as well as training and simulations. We’re excited about the potential in taking this to our partners, and it’s the perfect tool for them to lead with consultancy and advice to their customers, complementing the products and services in their portfolio”.
