Ninjio, a Gauge Capital-backed cybersecurity awareness company, has acquired DCOYA, a behavior-focused cybersecurity services provider.
DCOYA focuses on behavior modification, which according to the two companies, is an approach that’s becoming more crucial as cybercriminals continue to rely on social engineering to infiltrate companies and steal sensitive information. DCOYA’s technology works backward from the psychological tactics of human-related hacks. The combination of Ninjio’s cybersecurity content with DCOYA’s machine-learning-driven cybersecurity awareness service looks to give CISOs and other company leaders a more effective cybersecurity awareness training toolkit.
“We are thrilled to add a set of digital tools that will make our platform even more proactive, automated, and data-driven,” says Shaun McAlmont, Ninjio CEO. “DCOYA’s machine-learning-powered technology enables us to meet a security professional’s specific needs and streamline their approach to cybersecurity.”
