Circadence Timeline

Founded in 1995 as VR-1, the company originally produced and released online videogames for clients including AOL’s Game Channel and Deutsche Telekom. The company was one of the first to begin developing massively multi-player games, releasing titles including Air Attack and SARAC, and first entering the national market with this slate of games in 1996-97. In 2000, the company changed its name to Circadence and focused on software that could speed up application performance. Circadence sold the VR-1 entertainment division to Pacific Century CyberWorks Japan Co. in February 2001.

In 2005, Circadence opened a second office in Tupelo, Mississippi. The company’s revenues grew four-fold between 2005 and 2008, during which time Circadence developed its application optimization technology under the name Circadence MVO™. From frontline war fighters to enterprise data centers, MVO has been evaluated, approved and implemented to support mission-critical communications for the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Joint Forces Command, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Army, the U.S. Marine Corps, and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory. Additional customers include the U.S. government, state and local law enforcement, first responders, users dependent on satellite transmissions, enterprises with remote offices, rural and urban health facilities, and research institutions that need to ensure continuity of operations. Partnerships with companies such as Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin also help Circadence solutions to support cutting-edge, network security operations.


In 2010, due to the rapidly increasing sophistication of threat and intrusion patterns, coupled with the Government’s focus on extending the nation’s cybersecurity apparatus, Circadence’s business development shifted focus to next generation cybersecurity solutions. The company began development of its cyber range business to build, manage and maintain next generation cyber ranges for the cyber test and evaluation community.

Cyber Ranges

In 2016, Circadence unveiled Project Ares™, the next generation training platform that leverages the company’s history of software and massively multi-player game development, and its deep understanding of application optimization. Project Ares offers a fully immersive, AI-powered, proprietary cybersecurity training platform for cyber protection teams in government, military, commercial and critical infrastructures.
