Keysight Cyber ​​Training Simulator offers universities a realistic turnkey cyber range

SANTA ROSA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that provides advanced design and validation solutions to help accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, launched Keysight Cyber Training Simulator (KCTS), a complete turnkey cyber suite that simulates real traffic using the company’s BreakingPoint solution.

With cybercrime on the rise and cybersecurity professionals hard to find, organizations are at risk. As a result, cybersecurity jobs are growing by more than 30% per year (as cited in (ISC)2, 2021) and well-prepared students will be the first to be considered for the best jobs in the industry. Therefore, academic programs that prepare them will be in high demand.

Keysight Cyber ​​Training Simulator allows students to develop their skills in a realistic environment with state-of-the-art tools currently used by business and government professionals around the world. As a result, students can quickly move into cybersecurity roles across many industries.

“Educators are making cybersecurity training a top priority to meet the urgent need for cybersecurity professionals across all industries,” said Boon Juan Tan, vice president and general manager of General Electronics Measurement Solutions at Keysight Technologies. “Partnering with Keysight enables universities to develop the next generation of leading experts and stay at the forefront of the ever-changing cybersecurity landscape.”

KCTS is designed to help academic institutions fill the cyber industry’s workforce gap with industry-ready graduates. KCTS breaks away from the common script-based cybergaming approach to deliver a realistic and comprehensive experience, with unique benefits for faculty and students, including:

  • The opportunity to hone their skills in real-world scenarios: Students will learn in the same environment they will use at work after graduation. For example, Keysight’s BreakingPoint simulates real attacks using legitimate traffic, distributed denial of service (DDoS), and malware, allowing students to learn from real scenarios, not scripts. These scenarios are regularly updated by Keysight’s professional teams, ensuring students are educated on the latest threats.
  • The ability to think quickly on their feet: A full range of Red Team and Blue Team lab exercises, based on one or more of the simplified steps of the Cyber ​​Kill Chain, prepares students for the unexpected and ever-changing environment of the cyber world.
  • Easy integration into the school’s Learning Management System (LMS): A common frustration for professors is when third-party teaching tools have limited or no integration with the university’s LMS. KCTS offers full Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) to ensure that instructors can take full advantage of their university’s LMS investment.
  • Easy customization: The instructor has full ownership and control to create and customize scenarios as needed for the program.
