US: Huntress acquires cyber training company Curricula
Ellicott City, Maryland-based Huntress, a managed security platform for small and mid-market businesses (SMBs), has acquired Curricula, an e-learning security awareness training platform for employees to defend themselves against hackers.
Atlanta-headquartered Curricula also offers a gamified phishing simulator, story-based training episodes, custom content creation tools, and compliance reporting.
Kyle Hanslovan, Huntress’s co-founder and chief executive, said: “Delivering education and rallying the community have always been a core part of our mission. Employees today need relatable and effective learning, not just more uninspired content that punishes learners and sets SMBs up for failure. Our team had already seen Curricula’s results internally, so it seemed criminal to not bring it to our partner ecosystem. Together, we’re combining Curricula’s creativity with Huntress’s offensive expertise to address the demand for memorable and actionable threat training.”
Curricula’s chief executive Nick Santora commented: “Curricula is already embraced by thousands of organisations across the globe simply because our training content is second to none. Our animation studio creates security awareness content that is fun, memorable, and most importantly effective. Now under Huntress, we’re able to scale our global reach to resellers and service providers, setting the tone for what a remarkable security awareness program should be for every organisation.”
