The ECSA course is a fully hands-on program. The exercises cover real world scenarios. By practicing the skills that are provided to you in the ECSA class, we are able to bring candidates up to speed with the latest threats to which organizations are vulnerable.

This can be achieved with the EC-Council iLabs cyber range. It allows students to dynamically access a host of Virtual Machines preconfigured with vulnerabilities, exploits, tools, and scripts from anywhere with an internet connection.

Our simplistic web portal enables the student to launch an entire range of target machines and access them remotely with one simple click. It is the most cost effective, easy to use, live range lab solution available.

With iLabs, lab exercises can be accessed 24×7 allowing the student to practice skills in a safe, fully functional network anytime it’s convenient.

Our guided step-by-step labs include exercises with detailed tasks, supporting tools, and additional materials as well as our state-of-the-art "Open Environment" allowing students to launch a complete Live range open for any form of hacking or testing.

Available target machines are completely virtualized allowing us to control and reset machines quickly and easily with no required instructor or administrative interaction.
