Cyberbit Shifts Global Headquarters to the United States

A Leading Cybersecurity Skills Development Platform Provider Unlocks North American Expansion, Launches New Subsidiary Focused on Government Growth

NEWBURYPORT, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cyberbit Inc., a leading provider of cybersecurity skill development platforms, is pleased to announce the relocation of its global headquarters to Newburyport, MA. Additionally, Cyberbit has launched Cyberbit Federal Inc., a new subsidiary dedicated to enhancing engagement with government agencies.

This milestone is strengthened by the appointment of key U.S. based executives and innovators in the cybersecurity field. In November 2023, Cyberbit announced the appointment of Caleb Barlow as CEO. Mr. Barlow, formerly the Vice President of Threat Intelligence at IBM Security and creator of the IBM Cyber Range, brings extensive experience and a proven track record of collaborating with US government agencies. Joining him in key leadership roles are several former colleagues, all part of the IBM team that established the world’s first commercial cyber range.

“While at IBM, we were successful in pioneering the cyber-range product concept. However, technology has significantly evolved over the past decade. Building a cyber range today goes beyond building an impressive room with big screens; it is fundamentally about creating engaging content and scenarios that mirror the diverse commercial products, cloud environments and attack paths that cyber professionals encounter every day,” said Mr. Barlow. “With our new headquarters, we believe we are well-positioned to deliver the most comprehensive cyber-range content to a fast-growing customer base across North America.”

“We are excited about Cyberbit’s new U.S. headquarters and the exceptional leadership team that Caleb has assembled,” said Darren Battistoni, Managing Director of Charlesbank Capital Partners and Chairman of the Board of Directors at Cyberbit. “As a company headquartered in the U.S., Cyberbit has tremendous potential to expand opportunities within the federal government and to capitalize on the growing demand for its products and services in the region.”
