Capture the Packet
Capture The Packet (CTP) is a cybersecurity training simulator and skills assessment suite. This system can be used as a teaching aid, learning system, skills assessment, and vetting tool. Capture The Packet has been proven across commercial, military, and government agencies in multiple countries. Customer feedback shows we are able to bring teams up to speed 40% faster in advanced skills development compared to other tools, as well as teaching totally new concepts. Investing in CTP for your teams pays off quickly by providing a gamified environment that can focus on real world solutions on a live network.


Unlike classroom or certification training, much of Capture The Packet’s value comes from offering true functional learning and skills development. We provide a unique gamified environment where participants are encouraged to use a broad library of available tools and methods to solve challenges. For those who need help, a built-in hint system and knowledge base is readily available. While this style of learning is considered non-traditional, it has proven to have longer skill retention than simple book learning or annual training. By using Capture The Packet, participants develop creative and functional problem-solving skills which are critical in today’s ever-changing, adaptive cyber threat environment.


Capture The Packet has a massive amount of features that set us apart from other cyber ranges and makes us the right choice for your evolving needs:


This unique system prevents quick internet answer lookup or asking a neighbor for the answer, while encouraging team members to mentor or assist others while extending the useful life of the system overall.


Out-of-the-box ready challenges and scenarios

No need to spend hours on end configuring the range once you get it. Simply click a few buttons and start training.

Content for all levels of expertise

Challenges can be modified prior to the start of a training session to target any experience level from beginner to expert, and an integrated hint system is available to players.

Tool Agnostic

The system is tool agnostic, allowing units to train with the tools used in daily tasks. This encourages the development of functional skills which provide multiple options for solving any challenge.

Integration Capabilities

CTP can easily integrate with 3rd party solutions such as the Army’s mission specific trainer. This allows clients to run exercises on those systems from the CTP client.



CTP comes with everything needed to run a cyber range in a portable form factor. Existing customers use CTP as the backbone for their entire range (Firewall, DHCP, VPN, VLAN, Remote Desktop Gateway and Virtual Desktops).


The Remote Desktop Gateway solution built into CTP allows users to have remote connectivity into the managed range.


CTP has a regularly growing collection of cyber offense & defense tools that can be downloaded and installed from the user interface.

Cyber PT™ Card

CTP provides the first ever Cyber PT card, currently used within the Army to assure leadership that troops are mission ready by taking advantage of dozens of different report types.


CTP sits in a light-weight ruggedized life-time guaranteed rolling rack that can easily be moved by one person (<65 lbs.).


Custom Challenges

Aries Security can have discussions with your organization to identify critical issues, then create custom challenges to assess and exercise new skills as threat actors’ techniques, tactics & procedures (TTP) change.

Individual/Team Training

Individuals can learn at their own pace or as part of a group. This gives you the versatility to test your team in real world terms, scaling from member, team or department.


SSO Integration


 We are fully integrated with Microsoft Single Sign-On through Berkadia, meaning that users can log in using their existing credentials.

Force-On-Force Training

Our system provides value for Offensive or Red Teams by training them to defend against challenges or exploits which they may need to employ. Our “Capture The Flag” module is specifically geared to developing the skills of Offensive Cyber Operators.
