Course Highlights

CyberDefense Pro replicates computer hardware, software, and technology tools in our networked office environment. You can scan the network using Zenmap, Wireshark and Hunter at the same time to look for emerging threats. Implement new skills in lab simulations that develop critical thinking, followed by a lab report with immediate feedback. TestOut’s powerful simulations are one of the primary reasons thousands of educators choose TestOut to provide the lessons only experience can teach.

TestOut CyberDefense Pro teaches students many defense and offense topics and techniques like how to configure and enforce account policies, analyze and capture traffic, locate rogue wireless access points, and secure mobile devices. Tasks are performed within a contained environment that is independent from networked machines or the Internet. There’s no need to worry about configuring and isolating networks and computers. CyberDefense Pro has Chrome browsers available on Linux machines. You can stay within the same window to complete web-based tasks. With twice as many labs as other courses, choosing CyberDefense Pro as a plug-and-play solution is a no-brainer.
