EC-Council Offers Virtual Cyber Security Training with iLabs

The platform provides access to cyber learning materials, a virtual private cloud for every student

EC-Council has launched iLabs, which it claims is first of its kind, virtualized cyber security training platform providing access to cyber learning materials, a virtual private cloud for every student.

iLabs is a range of preconfigured virtual machines which will allow students to get practical, hands-on experience in the concepts and methodologies taught in EC-Council’s IT Security Certification courses. Students can apply their skills to work with vulnerabilities, exploits, tools, and scripts to practice and test, in a safe, fully functional virtual cloud.

The course will also include state-of-the-art ‘Open Environment’ allowing students to launch a complete live range including Backtrack, Microsoft Windows Servers, Microsoft Windows Desktops, as well as various Linux and Unix based machines with preconfigured target and victim machines in addition to attack machines. iLabs is making all the above and much more available with no instructors or administrative interactions, thereby giving each student 100% control over the training environment, announced the release.

Jay Bavisi, President, EC-Council, said, “India needs to gear up against the cyber plague every single day and one of the best ways is through secure coding and hacking education. Preparing the next generation is perhaps the best step towards achieving our goal. iLabs is one such platform that will get students and professionals to address and solve vulnerabilities in cyber security skills. With immediate effect, this program will be available with all our partners across India.”

The launch of iLabs coincided with the release of EC-Council’s second survey; Talent Crisis in Indian Information Security, in which one of the key findings confirmed that segments such as Error Handling registered the lowest percentage of skills with only 25% students exhibiting the requisite knowledge to deal with it.
