Elbit Systems’ CYBERBIT unit has won a contract to provide an Asia-Pacific country with its CyberShield-Cyber security trainer and simulator.
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 presents various network protection scenarios, conducts follow-up debriefing and evaluates the results, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
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.
CYBERBIT general manager Adi Dar said, "The cyber threat is constantly increasing, bearing much potential impact on national infrastructures. I am pleased that we can contribute and improve the capabilities of governments to prepare and face this imminent and exponentially growing threat."
