Elbit's Cyberbit and Ni Cybersecurity to set up new training facility in Japan

Elbit Systems' subsidiary Cyberbit and Japanese cyber security service provider, Ni Cybersecurity, are set to launch a cybersecurity training and simulation centre in Tokyo, Japan.

Powered by the Cyberbit Range platform, the proposed facility allows trainees to practise in real-life settings by accurately replicating their network setup, using their actual security tools and simulating their typical network traffic.

Cyberbit general manager Adi Dar said: "When there is a need to certify tens of thousands of new cybersecurity experts while improving the skills of existing ones, all within a very short timeframe, enrolment in simulated training programs is the best choice for finance, government and other organisations in Japan.

“I am confident that the initiative, led by Ni Cybersecurity, powered by our Range platform, will contribute to Japan's cyber readiness for the 2020 Olympic Games, and for years to follow".

Said to be the advanced and widely deployed cybersecurity training and simulation platform, Range provides an up-to-date selection of simulated attack scenarios, including ransomware, as well as hyper-realistic virtual training environment and advanced training tools.

The platform is currently used by multiple training centres in North America, Asia and Europe.

Cyberbit’s attack scenario library is continuously updated by its training experts to include newly discovered attacks.
