BOSTON - January 17, 2022

SimSpace, the leading cybersecurity risk management platform company, today announced HFS Research has named the company as a “Hot Vendor” in the Q4 2021 report. SimSpace was recognized for its Cyber Range platform that allows SecOps teams to optimize cybersecurity readiness. 

HFS Hot Vendors are service and technology providers hand-picked by HFS analysts to identify offerings that solve today’s complex business problems and market opportunities. HFS Hot Vendors display differentiated offerings and out-of-the-box thinking that can be both inspiring and useful.

“We are honored to be named an HFS Hot Vendor and believe that it affirms our mission of instilling confidence in an organization’s cybersecurity talent and technologies," said William Hutchison, CEO, and co-founder, SimSpace. "The rise in successful cyberattacks shows that CISOs and security professionals can no longer blindly trust their security infrastructure. To stay one step ahead of attackers and confidently defend against persistent threats, organizations need a robust cyber range platform that provides the scale, flexibility, and consistent availability that matches both their production systems and workforce demands."

“SimSpace has focused its strategy on building a holistic framework, balancing technology enablement alongside workforce upskilling and process improvement,” says Ralph Aboujaoude Diaz, Practice Leader, HFS Research. “Their Cyber Range platform is uniquely positioned to help enterprises continuously assess and quantify cyber risks, validate and improve their cybersecurity stack, and ultimately train and develop cybersecurity personnel.”

The SimSpace Cyber Range platform supports hundreds of security products, training programs, and certification frameworks to ensure that teams, technologies, and processes are always ready. The platform enables users to build and customize sophisticated emulation networks that are highly scalable and secured by design.

With the SimSpace Cyber Range platform, enterprises are no longer restricted to small networks or virtual environments not representative of their specific network environment and typical traffic. The SimSpace Cyber Range is a first-of-its-kind offering providing full-featured pre-configured and tailorable ranges deployed on-demand in air-gapped environments.

The SimSpace Cyber Range platform is trusted by organizations worldwide, including the US Department of Defense Persistent Cyber Training Environment (PCTE), Department of Homeland Security, and five of the 15 largest financial institutions in North America.
