Huntress acquires CyberTech startup Curricula for $22m

Huntress, a managing detection and response platform provider, will pay $22m to acquire security awareness training startup Curricula.  

According to Huntress, the deal will add a ‘fun, story-based security awareness training platform to its stable of cybersecurity offerings’.

The company also said it used the Curricula tool internally for its own employee security training before deciding to buy the company outright.

Huntress mentioned that the acquisition adds another critical layer to its managed security platform and brings an important security tool to small and medium-sized companies.

Curricula currently markets a platform that is home to a learning management system, simulated phishing teams, content for security awareness training and tools for generating compliance reports.

Huntress co-founder and CEO Kyle Hanslovan said, “Employees today need relatable and effective learning—not just more uninspired content that punishes learners and sets SMBs up for failure. Our team had already seen Curricula’s results internally, so it seemed criminal to not bring it to our partner ecosystem.”
