Coral Gables, Florida-headquartered digital skills training company ThriveDX SaaS has acquired Kontra Application Security Training, based in London.

Kontra stated that its training modules are built by developers, for developers, and aim to put learners in the shoes of a hacker to allow them to learn from a hacker’s perspective and better understand how they think.

Roy Zur, chief executive of ThriveDX SaaS said: “Properly preparing companies for real-life cyberattacks is our mission, and we found that common goal in Kontra. Engaging users beyond traditional education and sharing real experiences is ultimately a more engaging and effective way to learn, which is why Kontra’s trainings are a celebrated addition to our portfolio.”

Gyan Chawdhary, founder and chief executive of Kontra, commented: “We’re thrilled to amplify the reach of Kontra’s application security with ThriveDX SaaS and upskill the tech workforce through relevant, industry standard, experienced-based models. The ThriveDX SaaS team’s ability to parlay their careers in cybersecurity into the security solutions they offer shows us that their approach to education and value for industry experience directly aligns with ours.”
