Sugar Land, Texas (December 8, 2020) – ThreatGEN, an operational technology (OT) security firm, announces the upcoming release of analytics & reporting, as well as mobile platform support for its ThreatGEN® Red vs. Blue gamification 1.4.1 update. The ThreatGEN® Red vs. Blue gamification teaches, exercises, and evaluates cybersecurity strategic skills, which are nearly impossible through traditional forms of training and testing. The new mobile platform support reaches new audiences, and new features add value to company’s and educational institution’s cybersecurity programs.
Level 1 Analytics for Player Metrics
The most signification feature being released to the Education, Professional, and Enterprise Edition clients within a week is Level 1 Analytics for user game play, giving administrators game play metrics within their user base. Dubbed “Level 1 Analytics“, ThreatGEN captures numerous metrics associated with each individual users’ game centrally through its hosted solution. Administrators will have access to game summary metrics within Level 1 Analytics through their company’s ThreatGEN Licensing Management Console (TLMC) within the next week:
- user statistics (games played with dates, duration, total turns, score, win condition, games won or lost, red team or blue team, games won or lost as each team, human or computer opponent, wins and losses versus each type of opponent, score, successful compromises, and successful detections);
- ability to filter by game, team, and opponent type; and
- ability to sort by, and easily view, statistics for each match (useful for events, assignments, labs, and competitions).
The Level 1 Analytics reports available through the TLMC will be enhanced in the first quarter of 2021 with the introduction of Level 2 Analytics:
- individual cybersecurity category scoring and analysis such as governance, ICS security, physical security, security policy, and cybersecurity strategy; and
- expanded statistics tracking such as actions played, research performed, and assets attacked.
Please note, Level 1 Analytics are not available to ThreatGEN® Red vs. Blue Game Edition players.
