RUAG Defence gets advanced cyber security simulator from Elbit

Elbit Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: ESLT) subsidiary, Cyberbit Ltd. was awarded a contract to provide the Switzerland-based company RUAG Defence with Cyberbit´s CyberShield – Cyber Security Trainer and Simulator (T&S), the company said.

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 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 Trainer and Simulator 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.
