Palo Alto Networks introduces global Cyber Range initiative
The facility within Palo Alto Networks Europe, Middle East and Africa headquarters will open in Amsterdam
Palo Alto Networks has introduced its global Cyber Range initiative to build and improve skills for fighting against sophisticated cyberattacks.
The new initiative features network simulations and cyberattack exercises that enable enterprise security professionals to build on their security skills, maturity, efficacy, communications and processes. Customers from around the world will experience various scenarios, including single and multi-vector attacks and training on evolving malware.
The aim is that professionals who attend will then improve their internal team communications and processes with training sessions, as well as using Palo Alto Networks next-generation security platform.
The facility within Palo Alto Networks Europe, Middle East and Africa headquarters in Amsterdam is the first Cyber Range location, with further launches planned for the Americas and the Asia-Pacific region.
The facility was officially opened today by Palo Alto Networks chairman and chief executive officer, Mark McLaughlin. "Addressing cyber threats is only possible by combining innovative technology, skilled security professionals, and effective security best practices. Palo Alto Networks Cyber Range tests all three, helping security professionals stay ready to defend against increasingly complex and skilled adversaries. With cyber skills in short supply globally, Palo Alto Networks is working with its customers to give security professionals the capabilities, as well as the tools, to prevent successful cyberattacks," said McLaughlin.
