Our Audiences

ThreatGEN® Red vs. Blue is delivered to three distinct audiences – consumer / retail, professional / educational and enterprise audiences.  Each audience has different version and licensing. The differences include:

  • The consumer / retail audience[1] purchases, downloads and installs through the STEAM gaming platform and delivery mechanism.
  • The professional / educational audience purchases directly from ThreatGEN, has multiple delivery & install options, has multiple licensing options, and has features for cybersecurity training.
  • The enterprise audience is much like the professional / educational audience, with the exception that ThreatGEN Training Solutions can provide total customized gamification / gamulation experiences using the enterprise customer’s custom network maps, custom learning objectives mapping, custom action tree(s), and leaderboards.

[1] The retail version is limited in its capabilities for use in professional and educational settings. Current pricing for version 1.xx on STEAM is $29.99, with carious discounts applied for large volumes.
