Israel Aerospace Industries and Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing service are teaming up to provide governments, academies, institutions of higher and enterprises around the world with cyber training, IAI announced on Thursday.

IAI’s subsidiary Elta Systems has set up cyber academies in multiple countries around the world, utilizing IAI’s cyber-simulator training platform Tame Range.

Microsoft’s Azure is the world’s largest, most secure cloud computing service, according to a statement by IAI.

“The Tame Range cyber-training platform creates a realistic, interactive learning environment simulating real attacks for training purposes,” it said.

During the training, performance and responses by trainees are monitored for feedback and improvement.

The training platform also serves as the infrastructure for “testing new technologies and innovative concepts regarding resilience in the face of the ever-growing and evolving cyber attacks,” stated IAI. It added that its cooperation with Microsoft will allow different organizations to make use of the training platform according to their needs and resources “at any time and from any place, saving money and resources.”

Esti Peshin, vice president and general manager of the Cyber Division at IAI, said, “We continue to act to promote cyber security around the world. We understand that the human element is key to coping with growing cyber threats, therefore effective capacity buildup and training are crucial elements in pursuing a cyber resilience strategy.”
