KPMG ISRAEL & CYMPIRE PARTNER TO TRANSFORM THE WAY ORGANIZATIONS CREATE CYBER RESILIENCE
July 19th, 2020
Tel Aviv, Israel – Cympire, provider of next generation cyber simulation platforms and KPMG Israel, a leading professional services firm, have entered into a strategic alliance. The agreement allows KPMG to leverage and offer Cympire’s cutting-edge Cyber-Range-as-a-Service platform to help organizations develop and sustain cyber readiness capabilities amid cyberattack that continue to increase in volume, sophistication and impact. Cympire Cyber Range platform will be a foundational element in cyber security services provided by KPMG Israel to its clients, as its professionals help clients build cyber resilience through assessments, advisory, transformation services, training and managed services. KPMG Israel will further act as center of excellence of the Cyber Range offering within KPMG.
“We are delighted to add Cympire’s technology to our cyber security services suite”, said Shaked Levy, Head of Cyber Security Services, KPMG Israel. “The recent COVID-19 outbreak and its implications on the work environment as well as the cyber security landscape, have emphasized the need for highly trained cyber security professionals and therefore high quality cyber security training – in the business and operational context of the organization. This is not a luxury but rather an urgent necessity for any organization’s cyber security or IT personnel. The platform is disruptive in allowing a gamified and realistic simulation that is highly effective, while its cloud delivery model makes it easy to consume and operationalize. The alliance will make these capabilities uniquely accessible to KPMG clients as an integrated part of our services – from strategy and design, though build and training, to assessments – helping drive continuous improvement.”
“We are proud to have been selected as the KPMG Israel Cyber Range solution”, said Yaniv Shachar, Cympire’s CEO. “This partnership with a leading consulting firm is an important milestone for our company and vastly expands the reach of our cyber simulation platform. We are experiencing significant growth in the demand for effective cloud-based cyber security training and now, with KPMG as a value-added partner, we are even better positioned to serve this demand”.
