CYBERBIT will provide an Asia-Pacific country with its CyberShield cyber security trainer and simulator.

Elbit Systems Ltd. (Nasdaq: ESLT; TASE: ESLT) announced today that its CYBERBIT Ltd. unit has been awarded a contract to provide an Asia-Pacific country with its CyberShield-Cyber security trainer and simulator. The contract is in an amount that is not material to Elbit Systems.

The CyberShield simulator enables users, individually or as a group, to detect, respond and prevent cyber attacks, while experiencing advanced up-to-date attacks under real network protection conditions. The simulator presents various network protection scenarios, conducts follow-up debriefing and evaluates the results. The system will enable simultaneous training for multiple users on attacks directed at IT networks as well as industrial control networks (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition - SCADA) used in most utilities.

CYBERBIT general manager Adi Dar said, "We are encouraged by this contract award from a customer in Asia Pacific. The cyber threat is constantly increasing, bearing much potential impact on national infrastructures. I am pleased that we can contribute and improve the capabilities of governments to prepare and face this imminent and exponentially growing threat."
