Realistic cybersecurity simulator addresses training gap

January 30, 2017 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Cyberbit is demonstrating its latest Cyberbit Range, which is one of the most advanced and widely deployed cybersecurity training and simulation platforms, at the Cybertech exhibition in Tel Aviv.

Cyberbit Range enables enterprises, service providers, consultancies, academies, governments and military organizations to set up and manage advanced cybersecurity training and simulation centers, and offer unique and highly effective training programs that improve the skills of cybersecurity staff, and accelerate their qualification process.

High quality training is emerging as a key cybersecurity need. In the SANS 2016 Incident Response Survey , 73% responded that additional training and certification of staff is the top improvement to be made in their IR program in the next 12 months. ESG cites training and skill development as the number 3 factor for attracting cybersecurity professionals.

The Cyberbit Range addresses acute cybersecurity challenges including the increased complexity of cyberattacks, alert fatigue, skill shortage and staff retention. It enables trainees to practice in real-life settings, by accurately replicating their network setup, using their actual security tools and simulating their typical network traffic so trainees can receive the most effective and realistic training available. The Range includes virtual and physical ICS/SCADA network training, cross-functional executive training, and a rich range of attack scenarios including ransomware.

Adi Dar, CEO of Cyberbit, said, "The demand for cybersecurity training is exploding. Service providers who act fast at this opportunity can create a new local market within months. For organizations, training cybersecurity staff is no longer an option but a must, to retain their workforce, maintain staff skills and ensure a cyber resilient organization."
