WILMINGTON, Mass., Oct. 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Security Innovation, an authority in software security assessment and training, announced today that Micro Focus customers will be able to access the industry’s largest online training catalog for software security. Security Innovation’s comprehensive training complements the Micro Focus SAST, DAST, and RASP product lines by delivering a comprehensive find-to-fix solution.

In addition to computer-based training (CBT), Microfocus will also offer CMD+CTRL Cyber Range, a cloud-based platform that hones application security skills through hands-on simulation. From simple web applications to complex enterprise environments, the authentic cyber range challenges players to think like an attacker, probe system structure, exploit weaknesses, and make interlinking decisions. This powerful Attack & Defend approach of CBT + Cyber Range is the most effective way to build foundational knowledge and transform it into permanent skills. 

“We are proud to partner with Micro Focus and be able to provide our software security training solutions to their customers. There is a strong synergy between our offering and the Micro Focus application security product portfolio,” stated Ed Adams, CEO of Security Innovation. “CMD+CTRL Courses and Cyber Range are a perfect sell-through for Micro Focus field teams.”
