Cyberbit Shifts Global Headquarters to the United States, Launches New Subsidiary

Cyberbit Inc., a leading provider of cybersecurity skills development platforms, has relocated its global headquarters to Newburyport, Massachusetts, and launched a new subsidiary, Cyberbit Federal Inc., to enhance its engagement with U.S. government agencies.

The move is bolstered by the recent appointment of several key U.S.-based executives. In November 2023, Caleb Barlow was named CEO of Cyberbit. Barlow, who previously served as Vice President of Threat Intelligence at IBM Security and was the creator of the IBM Cyber Range, brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record of collaborating with U.S. government agencies. Joining him are several former IBM colleagues who helped establish the world's first commercial cyber range.

"At IBM, we pioneered the cyber-range product concept. However, technology has significantly evolved over the past decade. Today, building a cyber range goes beyond creating an impressive room with big screens; it's about developing engaging content and scenarios that mirror the diverse commercial products, cloud environments, and attack paths that cyber professionals encounter daily," said Barlow. "With our new headquarters, we are well-positioned to deliver the most comprehensive cyber-range content to a fast-growing customer base across North America."

Darren Battistoni, Managing Director of Charlesbank Capital Partners and Chairman of the Board of Directors at Cyberbit, expressed his enthusiasm for the new U.S. headquarters and the leadership team assembled by Barlow. "As a company headquartered in the U.S., Cyberbit has tremendous potential to expand opportunities within the federal government and capitalize on the growing demand for its products and services in the region."

Cyberbit aims to bridge the global cybersecurity workforce gap by revolutionizing cybersecurity skill development. The Cyberbit platform spins up massive cyber ranges and interactive cyber crisis simulations within minutes, mirroring real-world attacks, networks, and security tools. This allows cybersecurity leaders to rapidly assess and mitigate skill gaps, building top-performing teams. Cyberbit delivers over 1 million hours of exercises annually to industry, government, and higher education institutions.
