RangeForce was founded by three entrepreneurs who worked together as contractors to assist create the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defense Center of Excellence (CCDCOE) cyber range. This safe “red team/blue team” space was used to recreate realistic cyberattacks and improve the detection and containment operations for member nation cyber defense teams. With a goal to create a cyber range for the commercial world, there were two significant challenges. First, most organizations do not have the resources of NATO and cannot afford to create a physical cyber range. Second, NATO has extensive cyber training capabilities to prepare its members to train in the cyber range, which is not the case with most businesses and local governments. In 2015, the founders created the RangeForce Cyber Skill Training Platform. Four years later, the company has grown to over 50 people, 100 customers, hundreds of training modules, and ten cyber exercises, but the founding principles learned from working with NATO are still followed.
