SANTA CLARA, CA–(Marketwired – Aug 23, 2016) – Quali, the leading Cloud Sandbox software platform for DevOps automation, andCypherpath, the leader in on-demand containerized infrastructure solutions, today announced the integration of the Cypherpath Virtual Container Platform (VCP) with the Quali CloudShell solution. Through this partnership, joint customers are using on-demand containerized infrastructures to create and manage cyber ranges and private cloud sandboxes. Through full infrastructure and IT environment virtualization, customers are saving millions of dollars in costs associated with creating, delivering and managing the full stack of physical compute, network and storage resources in highly secure containers.
A cyber range, or cloud sandbox, gives enterprises the ability to rapidly reconfigure IT environments for use by individuals and teams to conduct offensive and defensive cyber-mission rehearsal training, tool-specific training, software evaluation, and configuration testing. Most organizations lack the budget and manpower resources required to deploy large scale, non-production cyber environments using existing enterprise tools and many solutions available to them do not include the ability to rapidly change, add, modify and control the environments.
By leveraging the partnership, value added reseller (VAR) TSI was able to provide ManTech International Corporation the technology needed to give DISA a fully virtualized lab infrastructure, complete with integrated virtual sandboxing and cyber range capabilities. With this full stack, DISA is able to use the lab to develop, test and run infrastructure in private clouds or bare-metal servers without requiring the agency to adopt proprietary tools, saving both time and money.
“DISA is responsible for supporting a critical element of our national defense strategy, which is the sharing of information between joint warfighters, national leaders, and other mission and coalition partners,” said Ernest McCaleb, ManTech technical director and DISA Cyber Security Range chief architect. “This fast, simple and cost effective solution provides us with the ability to fulfill our mission without sacrificing performance or security, and deliver the Multiprotocol Label Switching stack at a fraction of the cost.”
Through this partnership, joint customers can:
- Use on-demand infrastructure to support private cloud sandboxes in mission ready cyber ranges
- Define, deploy and manage fully containerized IT infrastructure on-demand while providing the agility to share and collaborate between nodes, networks, bare-metal servers and private clouds
- Significantly reduce investment in new physical data center resources and technologies by virtualizing their underlying IT infrastructure
“Public and private sector organizations need agility and security to compete, which is forcing them to look for solutions that bypass all of the roadblocks caused by legacy infrastructure,” said Danial Faizullabhoy, president and CEO, Cypherpath. “Through this partnership, our joint customers have access to innovative on-demand solutions that provide IT infrastructures to support testing, training, and experimenting in sandboxes and cyber ranges at scale.”
“The modern enterprise needs to be extremely vigilant and responsive to sophisticated security threats. Cyber ranges are a great tool to simulate real-world attack scenarios in a controlled environment and strengthen the security posture,” said Lior Koriat, CEO, Quali. “Quali cloud sandboxes help organizations build cyber ranges and other portable on-demand environments in a cost effective manner to model, orchestrate and test advanced threats. We’re excited to partner with Cypherpath to offer this solution to our defense and enterprise customers.”
