How Do I Purchase CART?

To purchase CART, please review the license options below and contact us at CART@ATHENACONSULTINGGROUP.COM for a payment invoice. Use the download portal on the right to obtain your copy of CART. Run the program to generate an Activation Code. License key(s) will be sent to you upon receipt of payment.

License Keys cannot be generated until the application has been run the first time and an Activation Code is generated. The License Key uses the Activation Code to lock the application to the CPU and user (based on the email address they provide when filling out the form in the application). These keys are non-transferable, so make sure it is run from the computer that will be used with the application. If the person using the application gets a new computer a new license key will need to be created. However, there will not be any additional fees for this within the term of the license as long as the email address used for the initial License Key is the same.

Meet the Developer of CART

Bret Peresich

Director, Product Development
Bret Peresich has over 20 years of experience in Cybersecurity and Software Development. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Information Security; graduating Summa Cum Laude. He is a 10 year Navy veteran and has worked with NIWC (previously known as SPAWAR) since leaving the Navy. He started out with installation of shipboard network intrusion systems and moved over to legacy application testing for NMCI compatibility. He was a participant on the working group to develop the Unclassified Trusted Network Protect Policy (UTNPP) – which superseded the Navy Firewall Policy. He served as the chairperson for the Legacy Application Security Working Group; working with software developers and program owners to make their software compatible with NMCI desktops. He then moved on to help Navy Medicine with their Certification and Accreditation of their backbone network. He has been with Navy Medicine (now under Defense Health Agency) for 15 years under various lead roles, but chiefly serving as the team lead for the Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) and Security Test and Evaluation (ST&E) team under DIACAP and DIARMF. While conducting cybersecurity testing, Bret identified a need for taking disparate data from the various testing tools to aggregate and evaluate the results. He developed the Cyber Awareness Reporting Tool (CART) to fill that need. He has continuously been updating and maintaining CART since 2012.
