Security Training Labs On Demand
This article is intended for information security trainers and training service managers that work in the Information Security Industry.
In a recent article I explained the necessity for and requirements needed to build the next generation of security training labs. I argued that it is important to improve security training labs and made a list of things to keep in mind when building such labs. You can read the article HERE.
If you’re an information security trainer that provides online trainings via VPN/VNC, chances are that you’ve heard students complain about:
The lab server/service that I try to reach is down/doesn’t work
The connection to the lab is way too slow
The OSes, web applications/frameworks within the security training lab are obsolete
Are there more servers/services other than those?
… And, if you’re a training service manager, you’ve heard your trainer colleagues complaining about students’ complaints and trying to figuring out a way to fix these issues.
No one likes complaints but listening to them and taking action is gold if we want to improve, become better at, and most important, have happy customers.
Having state of the art security training labs for your students/customers is difficult because of the increasing number of new vulnerabilities (adding them to your lab), new OS versions or obsolete OSses (e.g. WindowsXP). Also, keeping such training labs up to date is costly and requires a lot of man hours. Not to mention the time spent for designing, testing and deploying it.
At CTF365 we’ve developed a platform that takes this pain out of your organization. We made sure it is cost effective, easy to deploy and easy to use.
Creating a Lab:
As an instructor you have full control over the labs and each of your students will get his/her own lab to train in. You’ll be able to add, delete, create and re-create machines, configure networks, routers and switches.
Your students will have control over their own labs being able to delete/restart and recreate each machine or his entire lab if broken. All these with just a few clicks.
Connecting via VNC or VPN
Information security trainings demand new standards over security training labs. Offering sophisticated, well designed and reliable security training labs to your students/customers is not a luxury anymore, it has become a necessity for better trainings. That’s because of the increasing complexity of the software and types of attacks as well.
Security Training Labs on Demand can be fully customized with different operating systems, setups, frameworks and can be delivered as white label (on your company’s site). The platform will lower your costs, improve student’s training experience and transform your trainings into a pleasant experience.
