Very easy to work with, responsive sales and support often providing same-day turnaround on questions and issues. Remote learning capabilities are important for distributed organizations, and their solution is well-matched to the need. Their focus on security fills an important gap in the training marketplace. Some issue with content and user administration.
Form a pilot team of subject matter experts to audit proposed coursework. It can be difficult to get employees to make training a high priority, and to dedicate time to complete it. If training is mismatched to skills, it gets even more difficult.
There is a healthy variety of coursework, including specialized training on cloud technologies. The online, self-directed learning model is a good solution for today's organizations, which are often globally distributed, on the move, or working from home.
Training program administrators don't have much control over user administration and reporting. Given that the solution is an online learning center, having an admin console where customers could
Coursework content should be refreshed more often, particularly since IT security is a fast-moving topic. Notifications and summaries of updated content sent to training program administrators would be incredibly helpful.
Nothing vendor-related, but don't underestimate how long it will take your organization to complete the training.
No issues here, though it would be nice to allow program administrators to generate/resend user invitations.

Vendor provided all the documentation and support to help us decide, implement and go-live on target. It was a flawless implementation and with SME from the vendor to meet and assist at every corner.
The courses are generic and I would ask "What does the learner need to be doing differently to change performance", rather than what do they need to know. Knowing will get you nowhere if there is no behavior change. Mind your budgets wisely to deliver quality solutions that align with key business drivers. Start with a pilot project. This gives you a strong background to build support and minimize risk.
The education offered are in a curriculum to the audience at the different level. The course is of industry standard level and not 'fluff' courses. They require concentration and attention to grasp knowledge to pass the knowledge check which is intense. The knowledge check comes from a data bank of questions and seldom repeat.
Generic and not customizable to the requirement of business needs for a specific company.
Augment reporting capabilities with visual tables and graphs.
The courses provided are industry standard off the shelf with knowledge updated regularly by SME's to meet the industry changes and demand. Generic in nature for all levels of application developers to attain the knowledge offered. There is not much that we can do any different from the implementation made.
Not much to say but in short words - awesome!

Implementation was easy. We did load the courses in a test environment, tested, and then uploaded to production. There are Japanese translations available for 40 courses. It would be nice to have support for multiple languages. Course content and delivery are good. A broad array of information security courses. Courses are auto uploaded but exams upload is manual. The update frequency is random. Customization requires new SOW and is expensive.

Allow at least customers to tailor the course content to fit the company policies. meet with various customers and understand how they deploy the course and benefits they receive.

Overall the Application security training helped us to ensure our software is built to appropriate coding standards to reduce the risk of security incidents that can lead to data loss or financial fraud. Preventing such vulnerabilities during development is a key part of the “shift left” approach to avoid finding defects during testing or – even worse -- later in production
The product is SCORM compliant and was easy to integrate with our Learning Management System.
