CABOT, Ark., April 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Metova CyberCENTS®, a cutting-edge authority in cybersecurity simulation and training, today announced their placement on the Cybersecurity 500, a global compilation of leading companies who provide cybersecurity solutions and services. Metova CyberCENTS Cyber Operations Enhanced Network and Training Simulator (CENTS®) and SLAM-R® Cyber Range technology provide an electronic environment that simulates a real world computer and network workspace, providing a safe learning space for cyber professionals to train, test, exercise and learn how to defend a network.
The Cybersecurity 500 recognizes the most innovative cybersecurity companies – ranging from the largest and most recognizable brands, to small firms with potentially game-changing technologies, to solution providers poised for growth around productized or vertically-focused services.
"Cyber range technology has become increasingly important and strategic to enterprises who are training IT personnel on cybersecurity," said Steve Morgan, founder and CEO at Cybersecurity Ventures. "Metova CyberCENTS provides a market leading and cutting edge cyber range solution that can help shorten the learning curve when it comes to cybersecurity training. There is a severe shortage of IT security people and Metova's cyber range can be used to cross-train people with limited cybersecurity experience."
In use throughout the Department of Defense, state, local governments and universities, Metova CyberCENTS' CENTS platform and SLAM-R appliance bring a cyber range to life providing a robust environment for evaluating new equipment, validating operating procedures and testing personnel proficiency – all while greatly improving a company or organization's posture against ever-growing concerns.
"As the established leader in Cyber Ranges with our solutions being used by entities ranging from the DoD to local governments, it's an honor to be included among the world's most innovative providers of cyber solutions," said Bill Dunn, president of Metova CyberCENTS. "Whether you are a government entity looking to test and hone your cyber capabilities, a private company seeking to build and test cybersecurity measures, or an educational institution focused on training next-generation cyber defenders, we provide the tools, training and testing necessary to attain the highest level of cybersecurity preparedness available."
