Elbit Systems’ subsidiary, CYBERBIT has been awarded a contract to provide RUAG Defence with its CyberShield-Cyber Security Trainer and Simulator (T&S).
The contract is in an amount that is not material to either party and the T&S will be supplied in the coming months, the company said in a statement Monday.
The CyberShield Simulator enables users, individually or as a group, to detect, respond and prevent cyber-attacks, while experiencing advanced up-to-date attacks, under real network protection conditions. The simulator provided to RUAG Defence will also present various network protection scenarios, conduct follow-up debriefing and evaluate the results. The system will enable simultaneous training for multiple users on attacks directed at IT networks as well as industrial control networks (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition - SCADA) used in most utilities.
RUAG Defence will use the CyberShield T&S as a basis for further development, before integrating it into the company’s comprehensive Cyber Training capabilities. RUAG Defence’s Cyber Training Services are based on long experience in both the fields of cyber security and training support. Currently, training is offered to military and civilan organisations, and covers a range of needs from technical specialists to senior directors.
The cyber simulator for civilian application, an original CYBERBIT development, is based on the company's extensive experience in cyber protection for defense customers, as well as its proven air, sea and land training capabilities. CYBERBIT's cyber simulators are already in use by customers in the Civilian and defense sectors, including the Israel Defense Forces.
