CYBERGYM today announced the opening of its first office in the UAE. The branch in Dubai marks CYBERGYM’s entry into the GCC region and is the latest in a growing, worldwide network of facilities that provide organisations with cyber-training programmes, custom-built to emulate their own infrastructures and technologies.
In light of the pandemic and ongoing social distancing restrictions, CYBERGYM will initially offer its training solutions to organisations in the region through virtual channels. CYBERGYM’s Virtual Cloud Arena technology enables multiple remote online users to access tailored training in defending against a wide spectrum of cyberattacks. In the next phase of its expansion, CYBERGYM intends to build a full-scale CyberFrame facility in the UAE, through which investors, service providers, governments and integrators can run their own training facility leveraging CYBERGYM’s technologies.
“After helping organisations around the world shore up their cyber defences, we are now bringing our range of cyber-training solutions to the UAE,” says Ofir Hason, Co-Founder and CEO of CYBERGYM. “Our proprietary technologies allow us to bring cyberattacks to life, so an organisation can gain critical understanding of real-world scenarios and safely train its people to defend against them in simulated, customised environments.”
“The UAE is one of the leading economies in the region, and this has made it a prime target for malicious activity,” says Ofir. “The massive shift to online working has only amplified the vulnerabilities in infrastructure, communication networks and supply chains. In the face of increasingly diverse threats, awareness is key to being prepared. We specialise in bridging gaps in knowledge, skills and best practices to create a workforce that is ready for any cybersecurity challenge.”
