With its Cyber Range Cyberbit has pioneered the approach of using hyper-realistic simulation to train and assess cybersecurity experts. This approach is now widely adopted by the industry as a means to cope with the ever-growing global cybersecurity skill shortage. Over the past year Cyberbit has launched more than 30 cyber range classes and opened dozens of cyber ranges with Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP), universities and enterprises worldwide. Together with it’s SOAR, IT and OT security products Cyberbit is the only company to provide seamless detection and response across the entire, converged IT/OT attack surface, dramatically improving detection of IT to OT attacks and increasing security operations efficiency.

“It is an honor to be recognized as one of the CRN 2018 Emerging Vendors in Security,” said Adi Dar, CEO of Cyberbit. “With the record shortage of security personnel, coupled with increased threat complexity and volume, security leaders are looking to improve their teams’ skill level and efficiency. Security managers aim to consolidate technologies rather than add point solutions that solve niche problems.

On the heels of our recent funding announcement, this recognition by CRN exemplifies our commitment to providing customers with the best of breed products to help them stay ahead of new threats.”
