SCALABLE Releases New Version of Network Defense Trainer

Improved Features and Enhancements to Cyber Range Environment 

Culver City, CA (6 February 2018) — SCALABLE Network Technologies, Inc. (SCALABLE), a leader in wireless network design and optimization products, announced today the availability of version 2.0 of Network Defense Trainer (NDT), an innovative cyber training system. NDT integrates real and simulated cyber-attacks, wired and wireless virtual networks, live and virtual equipment and applications, and traditional kinetic warfare training simulators into a full, instrumented, synthetic cyber warfare training environment. The system allows trainee performance centered on awareness, reaction time and correct action (at all levels), along with the ability to work through a degraded cyber environment and complete a mission, to be monitored and evaluated.

The NDT 2.0 release offers a suite of new features that enhance customers’ ability to train for cyber warfare in a combined cyber/kinetic battlespace, including improvements to Exercise Control, Role Player Stations, and AfterAction-Review. These updates improve functionality that allows cyber warriors, network administrators and command and staff to train as they would fight. This will improve their awareness, reaction time and ability to take corrective action as they work through degraded cyber environments and successfully complete missions.

“NDT 2.0 focuses on training warriors for the combined cyber/kinetic battlefield. Our unique cyber training range provides trainees with the opportunity to apply knowledge in a realistic, high fidelity synthetic environment,” stated Jeff Weaver, Ph.D., Vice President of Engineering. “SCALABLE will continue to develop our software in an effort to align with the continuously evolving cyberspace training needs of our warfighters.”
