KnowBe4‘s latest acquisition is MediaPro, a security and privacy training solutions company. It will help KnowBe4 expand in the security awareness training market.

MediaPro‘s security and privacy training solutions are used by organizations of all sizes. With this training, organizations protect sensitive data, demonstrate compliance, and reduce the risk to their reputation and bottom line.

Through the KnowBe4 acquisition, MediaPro’s customers will get access to KnowBe4’s security awareness training and simulated phishing platform. Moreover, the acquisition allows KnowBe4 to offer its customers a larger amount of privacy and compliance training modules.

KnowBe4 isn’t saying how much it is paying for MediaPro.

Rob Henley is KnowBe4‘s vice president of corporate development.
