After carefully evaluating HackEDU's secure coding training platform, the company chose to move forward with them. The platform met all the fintech company's requirements they had set for their developers' training. During the proof of concept phase, the company's security and engineering teams became fans.
"When we tested HackEDU, we found the challenges and hands-on lessons attractive for the information security team. Also, the proof of concept for the engineering team was attractive. The platform was cool and interesting".
Once the training was rolled out, the company discovered that not only did HackEDU meet its requirements for a new training platform, but it surpassed them in ways they didn't expect. "It was really easy to set up the platform and integrate all users using single sign-on (SSO). We only had to give them access to the platform, and they already had all the mandated courses set up for them by the team. We did the entire rollout in less than two weeks."
"Something that really got my attention was one user found he had access before the official launch, before the official communications, and he completed the training before it even rolled out."
"Even though our developers are very busy, they are making the time to complete the training. That says to me that they really like the training. I even have people approach and ask for access to other training modules that are not required."
Easy Reporting and Audit Compliance
"One of the criteria we had for selecting a platform was really easy reporting and to see how well everyone's doing in their training. What I like is there's a visual to easily see who's not started the courses. We can easily send out notifications and reminders through the Slack integration.
For compliance, we can easily download the completion report for the people who have finished everything – it's easy to track and provide evidence of completion. It shows the names and completion dates. That's pretty much what we need from a compliance perspective."
