HUNDREDS OF ATTENDEES EXPERIENCED CHECK POINT’S CLOUD SECURITY TECHNOLOGY HANDS-ON, USING CYMPIRE’S CYWARIA PLATFORM
Viena, Austria / Feb. 06th, 2020
Vienna, Austria – Cympire, a disruptive cyber simulation company, concluded today a series of cyber ranges at Check Point’s most important global event – CPX 360. The conferences took place in Bangkok, New Orleans and Vienna during January and February 2020. The Cyber Range, developed and executed by Cympire, was a key attraction in all three events, drawing hundreds of participants who competed in one-hour Cloud Security scenarios.
This year Check Point chose to emphasize its Cloud Security Products – CloudGuard IaaS, Dome9, and LOG.IC. The Cympire cyber team created realistic scenarios demonstrating the features of these tools when facing a real-life cyber-attack. The scenario storyline followed a true Data Breach event, that took place in 2019, and which exploited a web application firewall misconfiguration.
The gamified Cyber Range was set up as a competition between teams of three players. Every hour during the CPX360 Expo hours, one team emerged as the winner, after identifying and mitigating the attacks better and faster than the competing teams. Over the course of the three CPX360 conferences, hundreds of cyber professionals took part in the challenge.
“Check Point is a great partner as they always encourage us to push our limits”, said Yaniv Shachar, Cympire’s CEO. “Designing scenarios that accurately replicate cloud cyber-attacks was definitely a challenge, but one that our platform is perfectly equipped to handle. The platform’s flexibility allows us to create tailored scenarios in record time, and the gamification elements built into the system enhance the experience and improve learning”.
“Cympire’s platform has once again proven its remarkable flexibility and technological depth”, said Inbal Pearlson, HackingPoint™ Program Manager, Check Point. “The participant’s feedback was great. Many participants have yet to experience Dome9’s Product and Technology in production. The Cyber Range provided a powerful demo tool. These scenarios will now serve our sales and training personnel all year long as Demo and POC tools”.
