What is a cyber-range?

A cyber-range lets you create an exact emulation of your environment – a digital twin – that allows you to safely train your employees and test new applications and compliance with required standards.

By training in an emulated environment that is safe and legal, you can prepare for and minimize the impacts of a cyber breach.

Why use a cyber-range?

Test your environment and applications, and check compliance

Are you accelerating digital transformation for long-term growth and profitability? Patching applications and integrating new systems is unavoidable, but directly deploying new technologies and patches in live environments without testing them first puts your organization at risk.

A cyber-range lets you test in an exact emulation of your live environment, mitigating such risks. Discover how our cyber-range can provide you with a safe, rapid and efficient testing tool.
