Find me on:

Just because cybersecurity awareness month ends doesn’t mean we can stop being diligent in protecting our companies against cyber attacks.Especially with these compelling stats:.

  • There is a cyberattack occurring every 39 seconds1
  • By 2023 -three short years from now- the U.S. will account for half of all the data breaches globally2
  • 1 in 4 Americans have experienced cybercrime3

The battle is on and Tech Data is stepping up to thwart the growing offensive - welcome to the new Tech Data Cyber Range.

The Cyber Range, which will officially open on November 13, 2019, is an Immersive learning environment designed to simulate real-world situations that can be used to prevent, detect or respond to known or simulated cyber threats.

Three Core Missions: Train, Demonstrate, Engage

Cybersecurity  requires a holistic perspective covering not just the technology but having the proper staffing, business practices, protocols and techniques in place to spot -and stop- nefarious activities. In fact, Tech Data Cyber Range is designed to help solve the critical cybersecurity skills gap.

The range is equipped with the latest technologies and solutions from world-class security vendors to provide real-time, real-world engagements and demonstrations. The Cyber Range will serve as a training facility for our partners and vendors to upskill their existing cybersecurity teams as well as support community partnerships and educate new cybersecurity professionals.
