Why CENTS

CENTS

Using state-of-the-art training simulators much like those used by fighter pilots, CENTS® was developed in 2006 to support cyber training and operations for the US Air Force. Following a decade of success and continual refinement, today CENTS® is the commercial market’s pre-eminent product portfolio for preparing cyber operators to detect and defend against malicious actors.

Today, cybersecurity risks are among a company’s greatest concerns. They can drive up costs, impact revenues, stymie innovation, and severely affect a company’s ability to attract new customers. Moreover, the growing number and sophistication of attack models has many organizations struggling to find a way to simplify their architecture and operations, and strengthen their security posture.

CENTS® does just that. It provides a powerful, realistic, network-safe emulation environment for training and exercising cyber operators and planners, and developing and testing response actions to routine, zero-day, and catastrophic events in a real-world, real-time application.
