About HackEDU

HackEDU is a cloud-based solution, which helps businesses manage training programs for software developers. Primarily designed to help development teams improve code quality and maintain compliance, HackEDU offers customized programs, certifications, progress tracking, and more.

The HackEDU platform comes with a centralized dashboard that enables managers to monitor team progress, set up single sign-on, and monitor training program schedules. The system generates individual progress reports, which allows supervisors to view and evaluate code submitted by developers. Plus, managers can generate reports and certificates as proof that developers have completed secure coding training for compliance norms, including PCI-DSS, NIST 800-53, and HIPAA/HITRUST.

HackEDU offers courses across topics including Clickjacking, Remote Code Execution, Blind XXE, SQL Injection, Broken Access Control, and more, which train developers to identify vulnerabilities and fix code patches. HackEDU optimizes user engagement with the training programs with gamification features that enable developers to participate in challenges and compete to earn points. The system offers training in several programming languages, such as Python, Ruby, PHP, Go, Node.JS, Jave, Scala, .NET, C++, and Scala.

An amazing place to learn security

I learned a lot of things regarding security.

I learned a lot of things regarding security.


I most liked the sandboxed environment on which our codes get executed. the idea is fascinating. Also, the rich information about the previous incidents helps us to understand the seriousness of the application security.


I didn't find anything which is problematic. I loved the system. Thanks.

I like that they walked you through many examples of software vulnerabilities and exploits in a very methodical way.


I didn't like that some modules didn't give examples.

That it's interactive and the sandbox works very well. I really enjoy project base learning.


Sometimes I am lost and cannot get through a challenge. I wish they provided hints or a link to a module that goes over the topic of the challenge

Thorough coverage

Reviewed on 22/1/2020


The coverage on different types of hacking is very thorough, which allows me to learn more on how to safeguard my applications. I also like the way it allows me to do the hands-on patching in many different programming languages


Sometimes it is challenging to understand the reason of not passing the patching course
