HANOVER, Md., Feb. 21, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KEYW Corporation (KEYW) and Hexis Cyber Solutions, Inc. (Hexis), wholly owned subsidiaries of The KEYW Holding Corporation (Nasdaq:KEYW), today announced the availability of KEYW's Parrot Labs Training courses designed to provide enterprise security professionals with the technical, hands-on training they need to effectively identify, engage and remove today's most advanced attacks. Leveraging extensive experience protecting government customers against the most advanced threats, instructors will help enterprise employees better prepare for attacks from cybercriminals.

"With a long history of serving the Intelligence Community, Parrot Labs' cyber experts have an in-depth understanding of how the advanced threats get in, and why they are relentlessly successful in compromising organizations' networks," said Chris Fedde, President of Hexis. "These one-of-a-kind Parrot Labs training courses extend this knowledge to commercial organizations so they too have the insight to make informed, proactive security decisions. Parrot Labs takes pride in exposing students to rich and realistic scenarios within the courses so that attendees leave with the confidence to combat real-world cyber adversaries."

The Parrot Labs curriculum is designed to provide cyber offensive and defensive training in an immersive, realistic network environment, giving security and risk teams the opportunity to experience the threat through the eyes of the attacker. Training will feature classes in topics such as "Tactical Digital Forensics," "Offensive Methodology and Analysis," and "Cyber Leadership."

Beginning March 2014, Hexis and Parrot Labs will host an "Inside the Mind of a Hacker" 12-city U.S. road show.  Each four-hour session will include a Parrot Labs demonstration with the latest techniques for identifying and intercepting sophisticated attacks. In addition, the road show will feature demonstrations of Hexis' innovative HawkEye G technology, a purpose-built, full-spectrum solution that goes beyond traditional remediation to remove advanced threats at machine speed.
