The Baltimore-based information security company specializes in workforce development through gamified environments that help organizations recruit, retain, and cultivate talent.

Other prestigious companies who have received this honor include Under Armour, Zappos, Zipcar, and Facebook.

Our gamified learning ecosystem provides organizations a way to confront some of their most pressing cyber problems in addition to resolving diversity, continuous learning, recruitment, retention, and talent measurement issues within the cybersecurity industry,” says Dornbush.
