What our customers are saying:

  • “Seeing Ransomware propagate throughout the environment and experiencing the deception techniques are something that must be experienced to appreciate adequately. Add to this the heightened emotional state of seeing the network that you are responsible for fall victim, and this "simulation" gives a completely unique experience that I have never received elsewhere. This is not a product demo where the variables are controlled to paint a technology solution in the best light; the product, in these instances, is the practitioner."
  • “The exercise was well conceived and represented realistic TTPs that are valuable to see in action.”
  • “I’m tired. This feels just like a real engagement."
  • "I see there are a couple other exercises. If they are of this quality, I would enjoy them. I think I like the remote method. I had two monitors set up and a big desk to spread out my notes. Onsite exercises where we are crammed in and only can use our small laptops is frustrating."
  • “It was great getting to use a variety of open source tools for network analysis. Getting to work with people outside my organization allows an opportunity to experience a greater range of technical expertise and ways of thinking that vary from what I am used to inside my organization.”
  • “The critical thinking aspect is good for someone who doesn’t have the opportunity to investigate these types of events on a daily basis.”
  • “This was great to have the hands-on live data…it’s not very often that training makes you nervous as a work experience.”
  • “It was interesting to see an environment that was very different from the one I see every day. The exercise validated a lot of the things we are doing right. I loved watching the use of skills. I have not had much exposure to being used to mitigate the infection. [This exercise] gave me some new skills to pursue acquiring.”
  • “Working with a team was a very good experience because I was able to see how others tackle the same problem.”
  • "We were able to compare what our actual response would be in our environment to the range and validate protections that we have in place.”
  • “The exercise helped in seeing simulations from both an attacker and defender perspective. The phases were well thought out.”
