Immersive Labs, the firm empowering enterprises to constantly monitor and optimise their whole workforce’s cyber capabilities, announced the acquisition of Snap Labs. The deal gives enterprises seeking to enhance their cyber knowledge, skills, and decisions, allowing them to create multi-player simulations tailored to certain situations and roles.

The acquisition emphasizes the importance of developing human capabilities that represent the unique characteristics of each firm, from executive to technical teams. Cyber risk is effectively mitigated by gaining cyber knowledge, skills, and judgement customized to individual elements such as technical environments and regulatory requirements.

Clients will be able to run labs and cyber crisis practices in a cloud-based replica of their own business with specific vendors using the newly integrated platform. This also gives technical teams the chance to collaborate in a large virtual environment as part of larger exercises including executive decision-makers.

When combined with the rest of the Immersive Labs platform, enterprises will be able to build a continuous cycle of human cyber capacity improvement. The cyber knowledge, skills, and judgement of the entire staff can keep pace with risk, empowering them to be employed strategically for the first time, with frequent exercising and evidencing against internal and anonymised peer benchmark data.

“From day one we have believed in the power of immersive experiences. Whether you are a CEO wrestling with the wicked problems of a cyber crisis exercise or a malware analyst decompiling the latest APT, nothing is better for building and evidencing cyber knowledge, skills and judgement,” said James Hadley, CEO of Immersive Labs.   

“The acquisition of Snap Labs doubles down on this, allowing customers to build better cyber workforces with richly detailed realistic experiences pinpointed to the risk they face. We welcome the team to Immersive Labs and look forward to building on our joint vision together.”  

Chris Myers, Co-Founder, said, “Snap Labs has always strived to provide the most realistic environments and training experiences for cybersecurity teams. Immersive Labs’ vision to build cyber knowledge, skills, and judgement across the entire workforce is remarkably aligned with our own, and we’re extremely excited to bring our technology into their platform. The two platforms are a natural fit, and by combining them we hope to help our customers build even more resilience against cyber threats.”
