We’re excited to unveil the Hack The Box CTF Marketplace - a dynamic hub designed to revolutionize the way our users create and engage with Capture The Flag events. Designed as a cutting-edge housing center, the Hack The Box CTF Marketplace empowers teams to seamlessly organize, configure and manage their team’s CTF events like never before

In an effort to streamline our customers’ experience, we found that a massive hurdle when organizing a CTF event is the time and technical expertise required to configure, organize and deploy an event and its challenges. To address this, the CTF Marketplace has been released as a game-changer that puts users at the forefront of their CTF experience. 

With its intuitive interface and comprehensive steps to setting up an event, the Marketplace enables teams to setup and manage their CTF events with unprecedented ease and efficiency. Gone are the days of grappling with complex logistics or struggling to coordinate efforts. The new CTF Marketplace streamlines the entire process, allowing teams to focus on what truly matters; the exhilarating experience of a CTF Competition.

The power of ease

The CTF Marketplace allows security and wider IT teams to save time and effort. It provides clear steps and an extensive library of curated content to quickly set up and deploy CTFs without the need for extensive technical knowledge. 

Seamless configuration and customization

One of the key benefits of the CTF Marketplace is the ability to preview and select from diverse curated CTF packs. These packs are designed to cater to teams of various sizes, levels of expertise, and specific interests. Whether your team is just starting or looking to challenge themselves with more advanced content, the CTF Marketplace has you covered.  By optimizing your events to your team's size and expertise, you can ensure an engaging and rewarding experience for everyone involved.
