BOULDER, Colo., May 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Circadence® Corporation, a market leader in cybersecurity training and assessments, was named a 2018 SIIA CODiE Awards finalist in the Emerging Technology category. Finalists represent the best products, technologies, and services in software, information and business technology.

Circadence has built a comprehensive cybersecurity training ecosystem that enables cyber teams to refine existing and build new skills on-demand, keeping pace with emerging threat actors. Project Ares® is the first fully immersive, multi-player online cybersecurity training platform for government, academic and enterprise organizations. The patent-pending technology allows security professionals to practice skills and hone tactics individually or in teams in high-fidelity cyber range environments using real-world tools, true-to-life network activity and a large library of authentic threat scenarios. The platform provides an unprecedented opportunity to simulate actual incident response scenarios, giving organizations a more accurate view of cyber readiness.

“Traditional cybersecurity training programs are unable to scale, and content cannot evolve as rapidly as the threat landscape, rendering most ineffective,” said Circadence co-founder and CEO Mike Moniz. “Project Ares completely changes the paradigm for cybersecurity training and assessments by applying the principles of gamification and persistent, on-demand training to cybersecurity in order to maximize retention and effectiveness. Artificial intelligence and machine learning technology augment cyber pros as they upskill and train for the newest, most significant threats. Our selection as a finalist in the Emerging Technology category for the CODiE Awards reflects the innovation judges found in our approach.”

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the premier awards for the software and information industries and have been recognizing product excellence for over 30 years. Business technology leaders including senior executives, analysts, media, consultants and investors evaluate assigned products during the first-round review which determines the finalists. SIIA members then vote on the finalist products and the scores from both rounds are tabulated to select the winners. Winners will be announced during the Business Technology CODiE Award Celebration at the SIIA Annual Conference & CODiE Awards on June 12 in San Francisco.
