Cybint Partners with Webhose and IntSights
Cybint, a global leader in cybersecurity education, partners with the Israel-based web data provider Webhose and threat protection platform IntSights to provide a more well-rounded learning experience for Cybint users. These companies are the first partners in Cybint’s effort to join forces with leading cyber technologies, bolstering the tools at its disposal to further reskill the workforce and upskill the cybersecurity industry
The cybersecurity industry is currently facing a major skills gap. The number of unfilled cyber positions now stands at 4.07 million professionals, which is up from 2.93 million in 2019. This is largely due to the rise of the remote workforce since the onset of the pandemic, which led to a 300-percent rise in reported cybercrimes. Cybint is spearheading the effort to fill the cyber-skills shortage and employment gap through intensive cybersecurity bootcamps.
The Cybint Bootcamp offers in-demand skills development, real-world based simulations, and an accelerated track to entry-level employment in cybersecurity, to make students workforce ready in a matter of months. The latest edition of its bootcamp program already includes access to Webhose and IntSights threat intelligence platforms, with more content and resources to be added on a regular basis. Through its global network of cybersecurity training partners, Cybint is expected to reskill hundreds of people to enter the cybersecurity workforce and believes that integrating leading cybersecurity technologies will make graduates of its training programs more attractive to employers.
Webhose is known for its comprehensive, up-to-the-minute, and relevant coverage of the open, deep, and dark web to enterprise-level customers across a range of verticals. Its granular filtering capabilities, depth of coverage that includes millions of sites, files, networks, marketplaces, and messaging platforms crawled daily are currently used by hundreds of leading enterprise organizations all over the world.
IntSights offers the industry’s only all-in-one external threat protection platform designed to neutralize cyberattacks outside the wire. It is trusted by many of the world’s largest companies to detect, analyze, and neutralize cyber threats across the clear, deep, and dark web.
“Part of our mission at Cybint is building and strengthening the greater global cybersecurity community,” says Roy Zur, Founder and CEO of Cybint. “We believe hands-on practice on leading industry products is important for all learners and will be adding more cybersecurity partners to the Cybint platform on a continual basis.”
