RangeForce believes in the power of leveling up SOC and cybersecurity professionals through advanced cybersecurity defense training, combining it with the ability to accurately and quantitatively assess your team’s actual skills.
Every day, hackers invent new creative techniques, with regulators signing off on increasingly significant fines. We help companies mitigate their cybersecurity risk by boosting the effectiveness and efficiency of their security operations through advanced threat training covering the very latest attack and defense techniques.
RangeForce was founded by three entrepreneurs who worked together as contractors to help create the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defense Center of Excellence (CCDCOE) cyber range. This safe “red team/blue team” space was used to recreate realistic cyberattacks and improve the detection and containment operations for member nation cyber defense teams.
With a goal to create a cyber range for the commercial world, there were two significant challenges. First, most organizations do not have the resources of NATO and cannot afford to create a physical cyber range. Second, NATO has extensive cyber training capabilities to prepare its members to train in the cyber range, which is not the case with most businesses and local governments.
In 2015, the founders create the RangeForce Cyber Skill Training Platform. Four years later, the company has grown to over 50 people, 100 customers, hundreds of training modules, and ten cyber exercises, but the founding principles learned from working with NATO are still followed.
We believe that security is not a black box. Everyone should be able to build effective security practices into their operations. Our platform transforms your Security and IT professionals into highly-capable enterprise defenders who know how to discover and respond to vulnerabilities and attacks with ease.
We‘re on a mission to reduce cyber attacks and make digital life safer.
