OKTA-FASTEST-GROWINGCybersecurity services rank at the top of the list of fastest-growing apps in corporate America

KnowBe4 is the provider of the world’s largest security awareness training and simulated phishing platform. Okta’s new Business at Work 2019 Report showed that KnowBe4’s service is number one on their list of fastest-growing apps in corporate America. KnowBe4’s adoption rate grew by 178 percent.

Based on data from more than 5,600 Okta customers, KnowBe4’s high-usage ranking reflects its popularity in the security awareness training and simulated phishing market. According to the report, less than half of survey respondents have participated in cybersecurity training at work, which is likely why KnowBe4 is becoming so popular.

“It should come as no surprise that cybersecurity is moving up the ranks of importance in the eyes of C-level executives and board members. Data breaches cost organizations a lot in both real dollars and in reputation,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO, KnowBe4. “We help to make sure that employees make smarter security decisions every day, so they can become an organization’s last line of defense. We’re excited to see that KnowBe4’s explosive adoption rate has soared to the number one spot on Okta’s list of the fastest growing apps in corporate America.”
