CTF365 – Who is it for | Subscription and Credits Explained
As you already know by now, at its core CTF365 is not a game. CTF365 it’s a top notch “Training Platform for IT industry with a focus on Security Professionals, System Administrators and Web Developers” that implements CTF (Capture The Flag) concepts and leverages gamification mechanics to improve retention rate and speed up the learning/training curve.
The platform is designed to be used by security professionals and students, system administrators and web developers, security training companies, Red, Blue and CERT/CSIRT Teams etc.
Though we’re in Alpha, testing the platform, adding new functionalities and some specific features, we already decided over our business model. As a product, we address over B2B (Business to Business) to help companies improve their security training core capabilities while their employees improve their offensive/defensive security skills.
What’s the business model?
CTF365 Security Training Platform will run on subscription or/and credit model based on customer segments and necessities. Before we get into details, our B2B customers that we address are as follows:
- Security Training Companies – Educational, Continuous Improvement, Learning and Training
- InfoSec Vendors (Cisco, McAfee, Rapid7 etc) – Testing their products through gamification and crowdsourcing
- InfoSec Organizations (OWASP, ENISA etc) – Improving Internet Security Awareness
- InfoSec Conferences – Entertaining, Challenging, Community Driven
- Security Management Companies – Continuous Training and Improvement
- Red, Blue, CERT/CSIRT Teams
- Information Security Recruiters
- CS faculties – Educational, Challenging, Hands on
- Web developing companies – Improving and Training for Defensive Security
- Web Hosting Companies – Defensive Security Trainings
- Data Centres
Because different customers with different needs from light to heavy when comes to security learning, training and improving. We did think over the different size and necessities for our B2B customer segments. For example, small companies not security related that have IT departments, always will perfect fit into Silver package, while companies that are security related will perfect fit for Gold package.
When we choose credits business model we did it for heavy trainings Security Management company that manage Red and Blue Teams will need a larger credit package as well as Computer Science Faculties where students need hands on trainings as well as for Information Security Certification Training companies.
What means credit subscription?
The Companies/Organizations will be able to get credit packages according with their needs and use them as they want, when they want and not monthly based.
As a customer, the biggest advantage is that instead to pay a monthly based subscription where whatever you do (using it or not), you still have to pay monthly, credit subscription means that once you purchase a credit package that credit package can be used at your will.
Another important advantage is that the Company/Organization will be able to offer training access to those employees that are in scope and needed within a few clicks
On the other hand, Information Security Recruiters, get spikes and scattered needs when live, hands on testing the candidates.
The point is that Companies/Organizations to get only what they really need and use it when they want it.
Bellow we present an example of goods that you’ll be able to pay with purchased credits.
