HackEDU Secure Coding Training Overview

What is HackEDU Secure Coding Training?

HackEDU’s number one goal is to reduce vulnerabilities in code and we do that through best-in-class secure coding training. HackEDU offers interactive Secure Coding Training online to help software developers lower the risk of vulnerabilities in code. Unlike other offerings, HackEDU is a learning platform that uses real applications, real tools, and real coding exercises to teach both offensive and defensive security to developers online and on-demand. HackEDU reduces vulnerabilities. Developers improve their ability to write secure software, boost their understanding of how software systems are hacked, and decrease the time to solve security related problems. In addition, HackEDU’s training helps meet PCI-DSS, HIPAA/HISTRUST, ISO, and NIST compliance requirements. HackEDU is merging Secure Coding Training with DevSecOps with a suite of tools to make training highly targeted, relevant, and timely.

What do you like best?

The teams like the variety of the courses and the way they are laid out. The content is well paced and the additional challenges make it feel like real world situations. Im pleased to see that OWASP top 10 APi has been introduced as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

So far, i've had no negative feedback on the course at all. The only observation is that some of the teams have spent longer getting through the learning that we may have expected. However this can also highlight to me areas that need focus for individuals. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We are using it to show compliance to certified secure coding standards that are required as part of our annual review. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
