Cympire, provider of advanced cyber training platforms announced the launch of SPARTA version 2.0. SPARTA is a cloud native, flexible, fully gamified Cyber Range. The platform allows execution of both Red (attack) and Blue (defense) scenarios for any level of cybersecurity professionals, as well as training developers on secure development, all wrapped in engaging gamified user experience.
The new SPARTA version includes a slew of new features, including an improved Assessment module that allows CISOs and other executives see a true picture of their team members’ capabilities based on the MITTRE ATT&CK vector. The feature is useful for both readiness-assessment and training of existing cybersecurity teams and for screening purposes during the hiring process of candidates. Other features include a new training debrief report with key insights from every training that are then stored in the trainee’s personal file, auto-progress support through the training and original music composed by the renowned video games music composer Inon Zur, who composed the music for games such as Fallout, Dragon Age and Syberia.
The new version will debut in the KPMG EMA Cyber Bootcamp which takes place in Amsterdam June 3-7, 2019. Bootcamp participants will get to improve their cybersecurity skills while competing in teams on the renewed SPARTA platform.
“We are very proud in this latest release of SPARTA”, said Ophir Bear, Cympire Co-Founder and CEO. “The addition of the new features and the Assessment module specifically adds significant value to the platform and hopefully makes it even more useful for organizations, and more fun for users. Today CISOs base their assessment of the teams and candidates on theoretical exams, interviews and general guesswork. With SPARTA they can get precise input on the level of each person in every cyber topic they choose to train on. In our view this is a real revolution”.
