GREENBELT, Md. (PRWEB) November 08, 2017 -- Point3 Security Inc. has collaborated with Cybrary to provide Escalate™, a gamified, challenge- based, online learning experience for purchase to over 1.4 million users through the Cybrary platform. Escalate will be launching on Cyber Monday, November 27, 2017, at which point users can choose to subscribe for 3 months or a year.
Escalate is an immersive online ecosystem that up-skills users in a variety of advanced topics. The Point3 assessment platform was built by master craftsmen, leaders in cyber operations and development, who have honed their craft on live operations. For less than the cost of a bootcamp, Escalate offers 24/7, hands-on keyboard, capture-the-flag tasks.
In response to early demand from ShellCon vendors and attendees, Escalate can be pre-ordered starting on November 8th — as a bonus, early adopters will receive a year subscription of BinaryNinja (valued at $150) for free. November 8th will also mark the launch of Escalate’s no-cost demo version, offering three intermediate challenges for those eager to experience the virtual environment.
“Escalate members continue to be identified as the gold-standard of the cybersecurity and defense industry by government agency recruiters and commercial sector head-hunters,” says Evan Dornbush,CEO and Co-Founder of Point3 Security. “Cybrary is the ideal partner for Point3. They have built a rapidly growing user base on years of trust and content curation. By working with Cybrary and their user base, Point3 can continue to focus on delivering the most meaningful, relevant, and enjoyable content to those members.”
The Point3 Cybrary partnership is in response to the need to effectively bridge the gap in cybersecurity learning by making, skill enhancement tools available to more people, quickly. Both companies share a common goal of providing the opportunity to prepare for a cyber career in a format that not only meets the needs of the individual, but also aligns with industry standards. Escalate is the latest in a handful of app vendors to provide access to an enhanced learning experience via the Cybrary platform.
“We are excited to team up with Point3 to deliver yet another incredible learning enhancement tool to our members through the growing Cybrary catalog,” says Ryan Corey, CEO and Co-Founder of Cybrary. “Escalate will serve as a marquee product for those looking for a truly immersive experience.”
Escalate™ introduces hands-on-keyboard challenges, which mentor, train and teach members master tradecraft to malware reverse engineering, network security, disk and memory forensics, vulnerability research, offensive/defensive ops, and software development.
