Facebook approached Tank with a challenge — they needed a new approach in providing InfoSec resources to students and industry professionals trying to get more hands-on experience. They had previously developed a Capture the Flag competition platform, but it required their engineering staff to travel the world physically hosting the events. As the demand for the platform increased, Facebook knew they needed a better solution.
With a prototype developed, Facebook approached Tank to completely revamp their CTF experience to be more user-friendly, scalable and accessible by a broader community.
Through a robust UX and design study, Tank conceived and developed various game play modes, an administrator portal and a user portal for increased engagement. The result? The game is one of highest engaged products or services Facebook has open-sourced. Since launching, the game has been used by institutions and organizations of all sizes.
