Real Life Pentesting with the usd PentestLab.

Pentesters can train their methodical skills, creativity and endurance in real life pentesting, using a continuously growing number of preconfigured server environments, various technologies and vulnerabilities of varying difficulty levels. No isolated tasks. No reports. No jury. Only skill counts.

The PentestLab is not only used by our own pentesters, but also provides the training environment for our clients during CST Academy events, and is the basis for our regular Hackers’ Days designed for students and universities.

Where does the journey take us?

The HeroLab is not a static construct. This is due to the mere fact that the world of IT security is in a steady state of flux. However, feedback from all user groups is already finding its way into the continuous development of the usd HeroLab. Further features are being planned and developed. “Battle of Heroes”, “Bug-bounty Environment” and “Games” are only a selection of the keywords that indicate what lies ahead.
