Antisyphon Cyber Range
The skills gap and funding to train new Security Operations Center (SOC) personnel is becoming difficult for organizations to bridge. Oftentimes, well-intentioned organizations do not have the means to confidently operate in a perpetually understaffed mode. Cybersecurity teams may lack advanced skills in areas like security analytics or forensic investigations, putting more pressure on the most experienced staffers to accommodate this growing need in the industry.
To address this need, Active Countermeasures, along with our sister companies BHIS, and WWHF have partnered with MetaCTF to create the Antisyphon training range.
The goal of this cyber range is a bit different from most other ranges. It is not just to provide a place for people to work through challenges and play, but rather as an open direct/hands-on training environment.
For example, if we have a challenge like the one below:
The above challenge is a basic base64 challenge. However, if the student has never seen this, they would have little or no idea where to start. Sometimes, people are so out of their comfort zone they don’t even know the right questions to ask.
However, in the ACM/BHIS Antisyphon range, every question either has a very heavy hint or a direct link to a short training video, blog or webcast covering the technique needed to solve the challenge. In the above example, the challenge directly links to the Base64 video from BHIS.
Because we have built-in tutorials and hints, many can start with little to no experience!
Currently, there are over 122 questions covering topics like Web, Recon, Pentesting, Forensics, Crypto, Reverse Engineering, and Threat Hunting.
This service will be available for free to all AC-Hunter Customers…
