After a long delay, we proudly announce that CTF365 has finally started its Alpha Stage. The initial release took us much longer than we expected, and the amount of designing, redesigning, thinking, rethinking and work was tremendous. Frustration and unforeseen obstacles arose along the way. For example, among other things, one bug we had to find and fix on our backend delayed release by 6 months. This will tend to happen when you’re a startup in bootstrap mode.
– All users that got 10 or 15 referrals; by getting 10-15 referrals they proved their interest for CTFs and CTF365 in particular. For that, besides our thanks to you guys, you earned Alpha Stage access. We hope we’ll be able to impress you. Those of you who tried to get 10-15 fake referrals, don’t worry, you’ll have no access unless you get the real ones. As we’ve told you before, there are some filters to determine the difference between fake and real referrals.
Starting as of November 6th 2013, we will be suspending our referral access service.
– Security Management Companies
– Infosec instructors/teachers.
-CERT/CSIRT instructors and team members, Blue and Red Teams (infosec industry)
– InfoSec training companies

Alpha stage is for information security company representatives, computer security faculty, companies that have information security departments that need continuous training, infosec conferences organizers, CERT/CSIRT as well as any organization such OWASP or infosec focused to test and see how CTF365 can help them.
Just send us an email with Subject line: “Request Alpha Stage Access” at support [at] ctf365 [dot] com telling us about you, and more importantly about your work as an information security professional, web developer or system administrator and why you want to join Alpha/Beta and we’ll activate your access if we find there to be just reason for this to be beneficial for our Alpha stage.
If everything goes smoothly, within a month or two, we’ll move into Beta.
Stay secure while having fun
