Special offer for universities

Free ANY.RUN Sandbox for Educational Purposes

ANY.RUN gives a new free opportunity to use our service for university professors and lecturers. Teachers and students of cybersecurity courses can work in a team together and analyze malicious objects and URLs. Level up your programs with a new approach to malware analysis! 

What is ANY.RUN sandbox?

ANY.RUN is an interactive malware analysis sandbox. The service detects, analyzes, and monitors cybersecurity threats. 150k malware analytics work with the service every day. And a lot of users benefit from the platform’s results of the investigation.

Why do you need ANY.RUN for education?

Our sandbox is convenient for learning: 

  • See the results of analysis right away, how malware executes, and it doesn’t require any preparation. Just start the task and get the result. 
  • A user-friendly interface allows performing effective and qualitative investigations even for junior specialists.
  • A huge database of samples and IOCs.
  • Detailed reports will help you find the necessary information quickly and export it.
  • Work together on one sample. Create a team and track each member’s activity.

How to use ANY.RUN in your course? 

ANY.RUN is a convenient tool. You don’t need any manual or training on how to use the service. So teachers and students can focus on studying right away. Integration of the sandbox into your course can be different. For example: 

  • Giving lectures with visual materials 
  • Real-time investigating and malware research
  • Labs for investigating a big variety of samples 
  • Homeworks – a lecturer can check each member’s activity in the team history 
  • Performing analysis together for better understanding and improving team working skills
  • Working with detailed reports 
  • Searching for additional samples
  • Get an overview of malware functionality and behavior
  • Gathering IOCs

ANY.RUN has a successful experience of integration into several cybersecurity courses. Have a look at these use cases: 

3 malware analysis courses in the Dakota State University integrate ANY.RUN into their programs. Find out about them here: https://any.run/cybersecurity-blog/dsu-collaboration/

Malware analysis and threat hunting are crucial skills needed by our next generation of cyber security professionals. Providing safe environments with the appropriate tools to analyze malicious files can be quite challenging, and platforms such as ANY.RUN provide incredible opportunities for students to get hands on, without having to build out their own infrastructure or handle these malicious files on their own systems. ANY.RUN provides direct and valuable insight into how malware operates to help students begin to understand the tactics and procedures employed by threat actors, which allows them to effectively build a solid foundation of malware analysis knowledge. ANY.RUN has become an indispensable part of the courses I teach.

We also will be glad to work with other malware analysis courses not connected with universities. Just get in touch with us, so we can find the best solution for you, too.

Today malware evolves faster than light, we have to unite our forces to combat these threats. And it’s pretty clear that we lack experts to reach this goal. And ANY.RUN is committed to changing it. We’d like to help increase the number of professional cybersecurity specialists.

Let’s create the future of cybersecurity together!
