TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 26 (UPI) -- An upgraded virtual training, modeling and simulation system for cybersecurity professionals has been introduced by Sypris Electronics LLC of Florida.

The next-generation Sypris Cyber Range, for advanced training in detection and prevention of cyberattacks, combines a virtual environment with hands-on training, assessments and analytics, the company said.

"Every day, cyberattacks from cyber-terrorists and rogue nations threaten governments and businesses worldwide, creating an asymmetric cyber environment," said Sypris Electronics President John Walsh. "The Sypris Cyber Range helps level the playing field, allowing nations and critical infrastructure departments and ministries to train like they defend."

Sypris says Cyber Range is a "holistic" system that includes assessment, personalized curriculum development, hands-on training and dynamic scenarios. The earlier version of the product only allowed short-duration simulations and exercises.

"The Cyber Range provides a unique training experience that cannot be replicated in other settings," the company said. "Cybersecurity professionals using the Sypris Cyber Range will be able to perform real-world exercises and hands-on exercises, which use the Cyber Range's virtual environment, allowing individual and team based training."
