GTRI Links With Wombat Security On Insider Threat Protection

Denver-based IT consulting firm Global Technology Resources, Inc. (GTRI), and cyber security training provider Wombat Security Technologies said this morning that the two are in a strategic alliance, in the area of threat protection. Financial details of the link were not announced. The two said they will deliver a User Proficiency and Behavior Threat Protection package as part of GTRI's Insider Threat Security Solution Suite. That training and software is aimed at protecting against malicious, insider attacks, which the two said represented 59 percent of security incidents in the last year. The effort covers such issues as employee susceptibility to "phishing" and other attacks, which is a major contributor to introducing malware into organizations.
