Secure Sandbox is ideal for use by an instructor or school for cybersecurity training. It can come fully stocked with tools and targets, allowing for a full range of security exploration in a safe, secure environment. Access to the Sandbox is controlled completely by the instructor, who can create and administer course material.
Your organization can run your own red team-blue team cybersecurity excercise by using the Alphaville cybersecurity training environment in the Secure Sandbox. Alphaville is a simulation environment that features computing resources that are typically found at a city hall, police station, power plant, library, and school.
FOR SOFTWARE TESTING
Since the Secure Sandbox is isolated and not connected to the Internet or other production networks, it is ideal for for testing against live security threats, such as malware, viruses, rootkits and more. It is perfect for testing software vulnerabilities and capabilities.
Bring your IT staff to compete as the Blue Team and defend Alphaville from a Red Team of hackers intent on disrupting communications, stealing critical information or intellectual property, and causing mayhem for political reasons. These exercises create a demanding atmosphere that stresses team communication and documentation in addition to individual skills.
Under the pressure of a timed free-for-all, teams need to penetrate systems, plant their flag, secure the system, and move on. Teams can attack each other, replacing one flag with an opponent’s. The team with the most flags left planted when time is called wins the day.
Alphaville is also an excellent venue for Capture the Flag exercises. Individual participants use penetration testing and forensic skills to gather clues and collect evidence. A self-paced exercise, the CTF is a means to assess individual skills across a broad range of systems and challenges.
