Japanese cyber security contract win for Cyberbit

Japanese cyber security service provider, Ni Cybersecurity, has awarded Cyberbit – a subsidiary of the Israel-based tech business Elbit – a contract to launch a cyber security training and simulation centre in Tokyo. The contract will be performed during 2017.

The new training facility will be powered by the Cyberbit Range, an advanced and widely deployed cyber security training and simulation platform. The platform enables trainees to practise 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 provides a rich and up-to-date selection of simulated attack scenarios. It is the underlying platform for multiple training centres in North America, Asia and Europe.

Cyberbit General Manager Adi Dar said: “When there is a need to certify tens of thousands of new cyber security experts while improving the skills of existing ones, all within a very short time frame, enrolment in simulated training programmes is the best choice for finance, government and other organisations in Japan.

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

Takeshi Mitsuishi, President and CEO of Ni Cybersecurity, commented: “We selected the global leading Cyberbit Range platform, and we’re taking it to the Japanese market by opening our new training centre in Tokyo, launching in Toranomon. Our customers can expect exceptional quality training, faster certification, and overall more qualified and skilled cyber security personnel.”
