Metova to provide cyber range to US ANG
Metova CyberCENTS will provide a cyber range for the US Air National Guard's (ANG) Virtual Interconnected Training Environment (VITE), it was announced on 26 July.
Under the $3.8 million procurement, CyberCENTS cyber range technology will be supplied to the ANG cyber mission forces to support exercises and training, and maintain cyber mission readiness.
CENTS will provide VITE with a persistent training environment supporting the implementation of the cyber mission construct while ensuring distributed training for integrated warfighter operations. CENTS allows realistic network environments to be constructed that simulate and emulate adaptive opposing forces and threats.
The CyberCENTS Cybersecurity Network Training Simulator (CYNTRS) to be delivered can used as a stand alone range, or can be interconnected with other cyber simulators or ranges. It provides the hardware and virtual machines, as well as the capabilities to bring a network to life.
Bill Dunn, president of Metova CyberCENTS, said: ‘Our turnkey hardware offerings provide the lifelike cyber threat simulation that is required by organisations such as the ANG, Department of Defense, state, local governments and universities, for truly informed evaluation of cyber-attack defence and protocol.’
