Immersive Labs, a pioneer in people-centric cyber resilience, has gained recognition as a leader in cybersecurity skills and training platforms by the Forrester Wave: Cybersecurity Skills and Training Platforms, Q4 2023. This significant accomplishment is attributed to the highest ratings scored by the firm across 13 separate evaluation criteria, including breadth of training, skills assessment and verification, reporting and dashboards, and security framework mapping and alignment.
This recent evaluation involved comparative assessment of nine providers in the category. The study highlighted Immersive Labs for driving cyber resilience and readiness throughout organisations. Principal Analyst Jess Burn writes, “Immersive Labs understands the mounting pressure security leaders and their programs face and believes responsibility for resilience must expand to the entire organisation—and resilience must be provable.”
In its detailed report, Forrester also pointed out that Immersive Labs “delivers breadth, depth, and realism in its training and exercise content. It offers an engaging, gamified learner experience. Dashboards and framework reporting are centred on an overall resilience score. The score, and accompanying industry benchmark data, can be used as a board-level metric to demonstrate resilience or justify additional security spend and as proactive input to cyber insurance renewals.”
To reach this impressive ranking, Forrester evaluated Immersive Labs against numerous criteria spanning Current Product Offering, Strategy, and Market Presence. In noteworthy achievement, Immersive Labs received the highest possible scores (5 out of a possible 5) across each of these benchmarks, thus conferring superior capabilities relative to others in the evaluation.
James Hadley, Founder and CEO, Immersive Labs, responded to the firm's recognition by commenting, “Being named a Leader in the Forrester Wave report is an amazing honour and the culmination of our deliberate efforts over the years to deliver a unified platform that empowers our formidable roster of customers to build and prove cyber resilience across their entire workforce. This recognition underscores our innovative approach to cyber upskilling through realistic exercises and labs that give leaders tangible evidence of cyber capabilities compared to traditional training methods.”
Immersive Labs is trusted by numerous large organisations and governments globally, including Citi, Pfizer, Humana, HSBC, the UK Ministry of Defence, and the UK National Health Service, demonstrating its genuine impact and valued capabilities in promoting cyber resilience.
Moreover, Immersive Labs also offers workforce exercising covering cybersecurity awareness training and skills development for the entire organisation and highly technical secure coding labs that propel application security and DevSecOps across the entire SDLC. These offerings lend even more heft to its comprehensive cyber resilience suite that continues to gain global recognition.
