Past Performance

The clear choice for government and military

In 2015, Congressional Report 114-263 at the Senate Appropriations Committee, the Defense Subcommittee directed the OASD for Readiness and Force Training Directorate to:

“Develop, as part of cyber training curriculum, a competitive hacking environment that includes the ability for participants to build novel working exploits and defend against them..” 

In 2016, after a bid competition, the  OASD for Readiness and Force Training Directorate awarded our company a contract to adapt CTP as a DoD Cyber defensive training platform.

The first system was delivered to the US Army (704th MI Fort Meade) in January 2017. Since then the system has been deployed and is in use by the US Navy, US Air Force, Marine Corps Cyber Warfare Group (MCCYWG), and USCG. In 2019 we (partnered with Metova/Bylight) were awarded the contract by the Air National Guard to build and install standalone CTP Training Systems, at each of 18 ANG Cyber Operations Units in US. In addition to US DoD customer, CTP is also used by the Australian DoD and DHS.

In addition to providing cutting edge Cyber Training Solutions, Aries Security has leveraged its 12 years of experience running Cyber Competitions such at DEF CON, RSA, Cyber Gauntlet and Code Blue Japan and has won multiple contracts across the DoD. Since 2017, Aries Security has coordinated, and managed numerous DoD related cyber competitions. Here are a few we are allowed to talk about:

The professional touch

We have pinpointed the three main areas organizations need help with the most in event setup, and have come up with a fast and easy system for capturing your requirements and executing on your vision: 


We plan the event with you, getting information about what topics you want covered, and activities you plan on having. This extends to handling location, catering, merchandise and marketing as needed.


Once we have your key items, our staff gets started on content setup, procurement and site design. We will touch base with you during this process to ensure everything meets your standards. 


Now that the details are handled, our staff is on site with the event prepped. We handle all activities, awards, catering and entertainment so you can be in the experience with your team, not administrating.
