NEC AP, Sypris to jointly develop the lab; announcement made after winning multi-year contract

NEC Asia Pacific and Sypris Electronics, a provider of global cyber security solutions, will develop a Cyber Security Laboratory for the Singapore Government.

Announcing this on 2 April, the infocomm technology provider NEC AP said that the contract would 'involve deploying a simulation-based training and modeling platform that will provide a safe, realistic hands-on environment for the participants to hone their skills in countering cyber-attacks'.

The company, however, did not disclose the value of the contract figure.

"With the increasingly complex and sophisticated attacks from cyber criminals, an organization faces a multitude of cyber security risks to its IT systems, ranging from web defacement and malware infections to network and operation system attacks," said Toshiya Matsuki, Chief Executive Officer, NEC Asia Pacific. "NEC, together with Sypris, will bring together the latest technologies to jointly deliver a solution that will address the cyber security needs of the Singapore government, to prevent and mitigate against potential attacks,"

"The Sypris Cyber Range provides the critical platform required for organizations to simulate today's increasingly complex cyber threats," stated John Walsh, President of Sypris Electronics.  "The Range allows customers to seamlessly integrate and continuously upgrade best of breed capability and training curriculums from our world class partners to make certain that their employees stay ahead of their cyber adversaries."
