Mimecast acquires Ataata to boost cyber training credentials

Mimecast has acquired cyber security training and awareness platform, Ataata, in a bid to drive increased enablement across the market.

According to the email and data security vendor, the deal will offer customers a single, cloud platform that is engineered to mitigate risk and reduce employee security mistakes by calculating employee security risk based on sentiment and behaviour.

In addition, the offering connects users with relevant training that is content based on their score and recommended areas for improvement.

The solution is designed to allow teams to dial up security settings at the employee level by leveraging real-world data to train employees to spot threats that are targeting them today.

“Cyber security awareness training has traditionally been viewed as a check the box action for compliance purposes, boring videos with PhDs rambling about security or even less than effective gamification which just doesn’t work,” Mimecast CEO and founder, Peter Bauer, said.
