EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., September 13, 2023 (Newswire.com) - The CYRIN Cybersecurity Platform has introduced two new labs: Windows Operating Systems Fundamentals for Systems Administrators and Exploring the Windows and Linux Command Lines.
CYRIN's Newest Lab
CYRIN has an expanding IT and DevOps section and has introduced two new labs in that category. The newest lab, called Windows Operating Systems Fundamentals for Systems Administrators, is where students will learn the fundamentals of the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) for device and disk management. Here they will learn how to view events, manage users and user groups, and schedule tasks. They will also learn about the Windows Registry and how to view and change registry settings.
Why it's Important
This is important because Systems Administrators are constantly solving problems. They support, troubleshoot, and maintain computer servers and networks, and they are the professionals who make sure an organization's computer systems are functioning and meet the needs of the organization.
This new lab is mapped to NIST NICE Specialty Areas and NIST NICE Work Roles.
CYRIN's Second New Lab - Exploring the Windows and Linux Command Lines
This lab explores the Linux and Windows command lines, powerful tools that allow software developers, system administrators, and users to quickly and efficiently perform tasks without the need for a graphical user interface (GUI).
Command line interfaces eliminate the need for scrolling through and clicking on GUI tabs and dialogs. The ability to use the command line is essential for managing Linux servers that typically do not have graphical user interfaces. Many features of an operating system are only accessible through the command line, allowing you to harness the full power of the system. Furthermore, system administrators can use the command line to remotely control machines, automate tasks, and perform system maintenance.
This lab is also mapped to NIST NICE Specialty Areas and NIST NICE Work Roles.
CYRIN is designed for the seasoned cybersecurity professional or the student new to the field. Inexpensive and tailored for a 24/7 schedule, CYRIN labs, exercises and attack scenarios allow for training in a virtual cloud-based environment 365 days a year. Businesses can also use it as a test bed for new products. To learn more about CYRIN's content, visit our catalog page.

AnyTech365: An Industry leader in Efficient, Customer-First AI Powered IT Security.
Founded in 2014, AnyTech365 is a leading provider of IT security software products and related services. At the core of its extensive portfolio stands the revolutionary AnyTech365 IntelliGuard, an AI-powered comprehensive threat prevention and performance enhancement optimization software. AnyTech365's subscription-based solutions, delivered as Software as a Service ("SaaS"), extend their protective reach to all internet-connected devices, including PCs, laptops, tablets, smartphones, smart TVs, and a myriad of other Internet of Things ("IoT") devices.
In an era where cybersecurity takes center stage and the intricacies of IT devices and software pose growing challenges for consumers and small businesses, AnyTech365 is committed to safeguarding its customers' digital world and streamlining the user experience. AnyTech365 provides dependable and secure solutions and services while ensuring round-the-clock, 365-day access to certified experts proficient in Android, iOS, and Windows, and fluent in over twenty (20) languages.
AnyTech365 has received widespread acclaim, earning multiple accolades on local, national, and international stages. In 2019, AnyTech365 was ranked as the 27th fastest-growing company in Europe across all sectors, according to the Financial Times FT1000.
AnyTech365 intends to use the proceeds from the Transaction to increase its growth via accelerating its strategic partnerships with MediaMarkt, one of Europe's largest electronic retailers, the expansion of its direct and online marketing activities, further implementation of AI as well as software development and pursuing strategic acquisitions.
Embracing AI to Drive Growth: AnyTech365 tackles security, performance, and optimization challenges with a blend of its pioneering AI-driven IT security and monitoring software. One of the key benefits of AnyTech365's AI-driven approach is its ability to automate various processes, which leads to quicker response times and improved customer satisfaction. Through AI algorithms and machine learning technology, it can analyze vast amounts of data in real-time, enabling proactive detection and resolution of any potential IT security issues.
Additionally, AnyTech365's AI capabilities facilitate intelligent problem-solving and decision-making. The algorithms continuously learn and adapt based on user behavior and patterns, allowing for customized solutions tailored to the specific needs of each customer. This level personalization enhances the overall user experience and ensures that clients receive the most effective and efficient support.
Capitalizing on Favorable Market Tailwinds: The growing complexity of IoT technologies, alongside increased cybersecurity risk, has made it an opportune time for AnyTech365 to expand its legacy SaaS business. With the devices with which we interact every day becoming increasingly complex and connected and digital operations migrating to the cloud, small businesses and consumers are increasingly looking for high-quality, smart, simple and proactive IT security and support solutions. Furthermore, by utilizing its rapidly evolving AI technology, AnyTech365 is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the rising demand stemming from these trends. With a strong existing business-to-consumer presence and market resonance, AnyTech365 also has a tremendous opportunity to extend business-to-business applications serving small and medium enterprises across expanded end markets and geographies.
Expanding Strategic Partnerships: AnyTech365 is poised to scale its reach throughout Europe by expanding their strategic partnerships, such as with MediaMarkt, the leading Europe-based consumer electronic retailer with over one thousand (1,000) stores and an interactive ecommerce platform. AnyTech365's agreement with MediaMarkt will see the rollout of the AnyTech365 products and services being included as a purchase option in the MediaMarkt online checkout following the ecommerce sale of an IoT product or device as well as featuring across hardware insurance products such as Extended Warranty and IT Helpdesk, sold in the MediaMarkt physical stores and ecommerce platform. Additionally, AnyTech365 is also pre-installing AnyTech365 IntelliGuard software on MediaMarkt laptops prior to sale. The agreement also provisions AnyTech365 to position technical personnel at each of MediaMarkt's more than one hundred (100) stores in Spain to provide a "Shop in Shop" on-site technical expert experience. This unique agreement gives AnyTech365 the opportunity to offer its SaaS IT security services directly to the millions of MediaMarkt customers. Beyond Spain, the partnership is expected to roll out across additional EU territories where MediaMarkt operates.
Pursuing Complementary Acquisitions: The strong demand for IT security SaaS and the fragmented market presents a considerable opportunity for AnyTech365 to rapidly expand its service offerings and capabilities across end markets and geographies. With an industry leading compliance platform and highly scalable AI powered systems, AnyTech365 is positioned to achieve greater reach through consolidation in this nascent and fast-growing environment. With strong focus on implementing AI in all aspects of its business AnyTech365 also expect to be able to increase revenues and at the same time optimize cost and create efficiencies in performance and service level enhancements.
