Cyberbit Ltd. (Cyberbit), a world leading provider of cybersecurity simulation and IT/OT detection and response platforms, and CloudRange Cyber LLC (CloudRange), a pioneer in cybersecurity simulation training, today announced the launch of CloudRange’s Cyber Attack Simulation Training Platform as a Service (CASTaaS) – the first cyber range offering available through the IT channel in North America. With the new CloudRange service, cybersecurity technology manufacturers, managed security service providers (MSSPs), value-added resellers (VARs), and technology distributors can offer their customers advanced, simulated cybersecurity training powered by the Cyberbit Range platform – the world’s leading cyber simulation platform.
CloudRange provides the first consumption-based cyber range for enterprises and MSSPs. Organizations can now take advantage of the most advanced cybersecurity training available while bypassing the need to invest in cyber range infrastructure, technology, trainers and administrators, thereby reducing capital expenditures.
CloudRange selected Cyberbit based on the company’s unique ability to provide hyper-realistic simulation. The Cyberbit Range platform can emulate each customer’s specific network environment by using industry leading cybersecurity technologies including IBM QRadar, Micro Focus ArcSight, Splunk, Palo Alto Networks, and Checkpoint. Customers can train security teams, assess candidates, onboard new hires, and improve cybersecurity team skills on a customizable virtual network environment that mirrors their own. CloudRange, powered by Cyberbit, offers a complete training platform with unlimited simulated attack scenarios with sessions that are recorded for playback and assessment.
“We are excited to partner with an industry leader like Cyberbit,” said Debbie Gordon, CEO of CloudRange Cyber LLC. “There is so much demand for cybersecurity training beyond the existing industry training and certifications. Companies now have the ability to be confident that their teams are truly prepared to defend against cyber-attacks by training and upskilling cybersecurity staff on the CloudRange platform. Additionally, CloudRange will provide VARs, MSSPs, and distributors the ability to add a unique and differentiated offering to their portfolio while enabling revenue growth of cybersecurity technologies. Ultimately, it will allow more organizations to address the increasing skills shortage and respond to attacks that are growing in volume and complexity.”
“Our partners in the channel continue to be affected by the growing shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals,” said Alex Ryals, Vice President, Security Solutions, at Tech Data. “This type of hyper-realistic SOC analyst training gives customers the ability to make the necessary investments in security tools, knowing that they can hire and train SOC analysts quickly and effectively on a platform that mirrors their own technology environment.”
CloudRange training can be conducted either remotely or at a customer’s site and is administered by CloudRange instructors. Training courses will range from introductory to advanced, covering the most important security scenarios including incident response, forensics, industrial control system (ICS) attacks, as well as custom scenario capabilities.
“This innovative approach allows companies to bypass the need to invest in cyber range infrastructure and technology, while still giving them the experience and freeing their financial resources to focus on what they do best,” said Adi Dar, CEO of Cyberbit. “CloudRange’s flexible remote capabilities allow SOC analysts to take part in sessions from wherever they are, minimizing travel and downtime costs. Our goal is for every cybersecurity professional in North America to be able to enjoy cyber range training, and this service will make it possible.”
