The first-person playing experience in NexAgent is supported by core networking and security curriculum topics whereby concepts such as network segmentation and hardening and safety are addressed. The gaming structure in NexAgent  allows players to learn at their own pace, while  gaining confidence to explore deeper networking concepts later in their educational journey.
