ThriveDX Acquires Kontra, Expanding Its Corporate Training Portfolio with Best-In-Class Application Security Training
ThriveDX SaaS (formerly Cybint Solutions), announced the acquisition of Kontra Application Security Training, expanding the reach of both companies’ offerings and furthering their shared mission of digitally transforming users. Kontra training modules are built by developers, for developers, and put learners in the shoes of a hacker to allow them to learn from a hacker’s perspective and better understand how they think.
Traditional edTech training often oversimplifies content in order to better reach wide audiences, but this can often leave software developers underprepared for the reality of a security breach. ThriveDX SaaS and Kontra’s learning systems are based on real-life enterprise scenarios directly from industry leaders who have personally experienced cyber threats. Integral to ThriveDX SaaS and Kontra’s methodologies is the ability to translate industry-relevant skills into application security expertise, storytelling, active engagement, and simulations. Kontra is the only application security training on the market that supports SCORM technical standards for eLearning and can easily be uploaded to any Learning Management System (LMS) with flexibility and scale.
