Commercial Range Vendor Options

Advanced Business Learning (ABL)

The ABL Cyber Range has been reviewed and determined to be highly effective in training anyone to learn cyber related job roles. ABL Range participants learn how to use the many well-known tools for testing for and exploitation of network, server and application vulnerabilities. ABL’s on-site and live virtual Range support staff mentor and tutor students for learning a specific cyber tool. The environment is open for students to experiment with different tools to determine the right tool for the situation, as is expected on the job in the workplace.


The Michigan Cyber Range aims to strengthen Michigan’s cyber defenses by mitigating the growing number of cyber threats and providing a more secure environment that promotes economic development. This can be accomplished by nurturing a cybersecurity industry that leverages Michigan’s unique advantages, which include educational institutions, a large IT workforce, our manufacturing base and federal cooperation with the security industry.

Powered by Merit Network, the nation’s longest-running research and education network, the Michigan Cyber Range is the nation’s largest unclassified, network accessible cybersecurity training platform.
