MetaCompliance, the market-leading security awareness and compliance training platform, has announced the acquisition of MOCH, a specialised cyber security and compliance EdTech provider headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark. The acquisition underpins MetaCompliance’s ongoing growth in its core European market.
The investment will enable MetaCompliance to provide additional support to its European customers by helping them to train staff to be more vigilant in an increasingly challenging cyber security threat landscape.
Robbie O’Brien, Founder & CEO of MetaCompliance, said: “The acquisition of MOCH represents an important step in the expansion of MetaCompliance and will add significant capacity and capability to our operations in Europe. It also reflects our joint commitment to providing customers with a world-class solution that helps to mitigate digital risk through staff awareness initiatives. Together, we are excited to combine our extensive domain expertise, experience and shared passion for delivering learning solutions that engage end-users, change behaviours and reduce human-born error.”
Founded in 1999, MOCH has accumulated over 20 years of experience in the industry and supported more than 1,300 EdTech projects globally. Cofounded by Morten Ørsted and Christian Ravn, MOCH aims to create the best digital learning experiences by developing intelligent awareness training and technology-based education.
Since 2005, MetaCompliance has been on a mission to help its customers keep staff safe online, protect their digital assets and avoid reputational damage. Its award-winning technology and training content are used by organisations in both the public and private sectors to increase staff vigilance of cyber security threats and demonstrate regulatory compliance.
Morten Ørsted and Christian Ravn, Founders of MOCH added: “This is a very exciting move for us to join a major international player like MetaCompliance. With MetaCompliance, we have found the right partner that aligns with our core values and will help to deliver an ambitious vision for the future of EdTech.”
Guy Gillon, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Tenzing, said: “MOCH’s high-quality customers, talented team, value proposition and high cultural alignment with MetaCompliance’s strategy are all super attractive. With a strong local base, MetaCompliance will be able to accelerate its expansion plans into Northern Europe.”
Tenzing invested in MetaCompliance in January 2021. This is the security awareness and compliance training leader’s first acquisition and the eighth acquisition Tenzing has supported its portfolio companies within the last 12 months.
