August 26, 2015 – Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has signed a contract to supply Dai Nippon Printing (DNP) of Tokyo, Japan, its TAME™ Range, the Cyber Range training platform and certification for cyber warfare teams.
DNP, a leader in publication printing, documentation security and software security products in Japan and around the world, will become a reseller of IAI’s Cyber Range in Japan. TAME™Range allows a realistic cyber warfare training environment to improve the cyber awareness and readiness of cyber defenders. There is currently a need in Japan to train some 80,000 IT personnel so they could prevent cyber-attacks from foreign countries, as well as prepare for the 2020 Olympics.
TAME™Range provides its users with authentic, hands-on training in a controlled environment, using real-world cyber threats. While practicing, users gain practical knowledge as they are required to handle actual cyber-attacks – based on most recently discovered threats.
The TAME™Range curriculum covers all aspects of cyber warfare, including threat identification, incident management, mitigation, and forensics. It provides in-depth training on the tools and techniques that are under a team’s command when a real attack actually occurs.
DNP spokesman said: “DNP is excited to conduct business with IAI, Israel’s biggest hi-tech employer, which has an excellent reputation as an innovative, cutting edge technology company. After a thorough analysis of available cyber training systems, DNP selected the IAI’s Cyber Range system as the product that will allow Japanese IT personnel to be best trained against threats that occur on a daily basis and which may harm Japan’s critical infrastructure”.
IAI said: “We’re very happy to team up with DNP, and we are confident that TAME™Range, together with DNP’s excellent reputation will be a perfect match to address the growing need for cyber training in Japan. What makes TAME™Range unique is the embedding and automating of IAI’s cyber experts’ knowledge into a very easy-to-operate and realistic cyber experience. This allows organizations to train cyber security staff, assess innovative defense strategies or benchmark new and existing security tools”.
