KnowBe4 Initiates 24/7 On-the-go Security Training


The majority of the world’s population uses smartphones today and cannot go anywhere without them. So why not implement a way to utilize training through smartphones anywhere they can and want to do it?  It’s very clear that employees need more cyber security training to help them avoid mistakes that result in devastating cyber events.

KnowBe4, a provider of a security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, understands this and is introducing security awareness and compliance training on the go at no additional cost to customers through the KnowBe4 Mobile Learner App. The app empowers end users by improving user engagement and strengthening security culture.

Based on subscription levels, KnowBe4 offers over 100 mobile-first training modules that are designed specifically for mobile.

Users have 24/7 fingertip access to content made available from the ModStore library where they browse and enroll in AI-recommended training via the Optional Training feature. This provides flexibility and low-pressure opportunities to consume content whenever and wherever they choose, resulting in improved user engagement and higher completion rates.

Users also complete custom corporate videos and SCORM-compliant training modules that are uploaded in the KnowBe4 account. Additionally, the KnowBe4 Learner App supports push notifications for custom announcements, updates on assigned training as well as KnowBe4 newsletters.

"This new app will enable IT and security teams to improve engagement and completion rates for required training thanks to a seamless user experience,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “This will also help users to associate security with their personal devices, keeping it top of mind all the time rather than only when they are at work on their computers.

The introduction of the app creates a seamless learning experience for users across the KnowBe4 web platform and the mobile app with cross-platform synchronization. The app is available for iOS and Android, and free to KnowBe4 customers with a KnowBe4 training platform subscription.
