What is HackEDU?

HackEDU is a cloud-based solution, which helps businesses manage training programs for software developers. Primarily designed to help development teams improve code quality and maintain compliance, HackEDU offers customized programs, certifications, progress tracking, and more.

The HackEDU platform comes with a centralized dashboard that enables managers to monitor team progress, set up single sign-on, and monitor training program schedules. The system generates individual progress reports, which allows supervisors to view and evaluate code submitted by developers.

HackEDU offers courses across topics including Clickjacking, Remote Code Execution, Blind XXE, SQL Injection, Broken Access Control, and more, which train developers to identify vulnerabilities and fix code patches. HackEDU optimizes user engagement with the training programs with gamification features that enable developers to participate in challenges and compete to earn points.

I learned a lot of things regarding security.

Pros
I most liked the sandboxed environment on which our codes get executed. the idea is fascinating. Also, the rich information about the previous incidents helps us to understand the seriousness of the application security.

Cons
I didn't find anything which is problematic. I loved the system. Thanks.

Pros
That it's interactive and the sandbox works very well. I really enjoy project base learning.

Cons
