Said Tome Spasov, Managing Partner of ectacom GmbH: “Nowadays, it is evident that companies must upgrade the skill levels of their cyber security teams, without increasing costs or having to engage additional resources to do so. We have recognized the trend of such investments during the recent global developments, and, in the current climate, it is even more crucial for companies to be able to detect and respond to threats reliably. We are delighted to endorse RangeForce in our portfolio and provide our customers the opportunity to incorporate real-life situational training that provides the experience of defending against a real cyber-attack”.
