The only constant in cybersecurity is change. To best serve our customers’ needs and equip them with the latest technology, tools, and best practices that help them successfully combat evolving threats, Circadence regularly updates its cybersecurity solutions. This is the first of a regular blog post series where we will share platform news about our cybersecurity solutions.

To that end, our talented engineering department recently upgraded our flagship Project Ares cybersecurity training and assessment platform.

Security

Security is not only our business but also our foremost concern for our own software. New security updates strengthen Project Ares and shrink possible vulnerabilities that today’s sophisticated hackers could take advantage of. For example, accounts now lock out after 11 unsuccessful password attempts.

Graphics

Visual improvements to Project Ares marry form and function to ease the player into a streamlined user experience throughout the mission system. This new graphic style pushes Project Ares past the industry standards of other training platforms.

Ease of Use

Administration is more streamlined. With new capability to batch reset users in the administrative panel, it is easier than ever to onboard trainees to the system. Previously, users had to upload trainees one-by-one.

Branding

Customers can now brand the log in screen with their own company logo and messaging. Personalizing the platform helps companies and agencies embrace the Project Ares platform as a core training tool for their cybersecurity team.

Content and Reporting (Project Ares for Government platform only)

Enhanced trainee reporting features and upgraded Mission content now meets Government agency performance needs and supports their stringent skills evaluation processes.

More Exciting Features Coming Soon

To keep exercises relevant and fresh for all users, the engineering team is working on exciting new battle room and mission content for future upgrades of Project Ares.
