QOS Technology has launched two indigenously built Cyber Range solutions, Managed incident Response (MIR) platform and Purple Range Labstm. While the MIR Platform is targeted at enhancing the efficiency for Security Operations Centres in organizations by enriching and automating the incident response workflows, Purple Range Labstm is a training platform on cyber attack/defense that allows organizations to increase the skills of their teams in the attacking/defensive side of their network infrastructures.
QOS Technology was supported by the Cyber Security Center of Excellence set up by the Department of IT, BT and S&T, Government of Karnataka to substantially reduce the cost by less than half in comparison to international training platforms available in this space.
Speaking about the technologies, Ramandeep Singh, CEO, QOS Technology said, “Our cyber range solutions supports API, SSH, STIX/TAXII and HTTPS integration with the security controls and SIEM. Most Cyber Range platforms in the market offer leaning modules for Blue Team as most Red Team scenarios are Hard Coded and hence delivered by the machine only. However, in our platform in every simulation even the Red Team can keep escalating the attack vectors. This way it is a true PURPLE RANGE with learnings for both Red and Blue teams. It delivers true customization for the teams to simulate similar environments to the real infrastructure in their organizations. We have a strong roadmap to add industry specific use cases for both MIR and PurpleRange Labs. We have set up an office in USA to expand our reach.”
Speaking about the initiative, Gaurav Gupta, Principal Secretary, Department of IT, BT and S&T, Government of Karnataka said, “The Government of Karnataka is keen to leverage the state’s position as an innovation hub for India and as such we have set up initiatives in various verticals of the Information Technology field. We established the Center of Excellence in Cyber Security in as part of the Technology Innovation Strategy, to promote a conducive cyber-safe environment for industry collaboration and address the skill gaps, build awareness and facilitate innovation in this emerging technology field of Cyber Security. The Center of Excellence also facilitates standardization and best practices for information security across industry domains, fosters innovation, research & development and conducts some of the high-end-in-house-training programs within Cyber Security Technologies”.
Ravikishor Mundada, CEO, K-tech Center of Excellence in Cyber Security at IISc Bangalore said, “The Cyber Security CoE is a great initiative for Cyber Startups. Apart from brand value it has university connect resulting in more leads for new business opportunities, provides a platform for learnings from other Startups in the COE incubator as peer learnings always help in the scale-up journey for any startup and give access to common interest seminars and user groups.
