Project Ares has received the first-place award in the “Cutting-Edge in Cybersecurity Training” category.

“We’re delighted to receive one of the most prestigious cybersecurity awards in the world from Cyber Defense Magazine. The cutting-edge technology and interface is wrapped in a gamified environment, making it one of the reasons Project Ares is able to effectively scale training in a hands-on manner,” said Michael Moniz, CEO and Co-Founder of Circadence.

Circadence has flipped the script on how cybersecurity training is done by bringing experiential learning into the [virtual] classroom and into the [remote] SOC center with Project Ares. The solution helps cyber educators teach the subject and enterprise security managers train teams through threat-inspired scenarios. With Project Ares labs, instructors can provide project-based learning experience and learners can get hands-on-keyboard cybersecurity practice right from the convenience of their remote workstation.

“We scoured the globe looking for cybersecurity innovators that could make a huge difference and potentially help turn the tide against the exponential growth in cyber-crime.
