CEH version 6.1 – A first in India – Part of Cyberoam’s Security Awareness Program

Ahmedabad, India 15 December, 2008

Cyberoam, the only identity-based unified threat management provider offers its customers and partners the Certified Ethical Hacking certification, recognized as crucial in today’s cyber warfare. By bringing the CEH v6.1 certification to India, it offers a first opportunity for technical personnel to enhance their technical and business skills with the latest body of knowledge.

CEH v6.1 is the latest in certification for Certified Ethical Hacking, offered by EC-Council, the globally recognized certification organization in various e-business and security skills. Over the years, EC-Council’s experience has translated into a wealth of knowledge and information that enable governments as well as corporates to take preemptive measures against malicious attackers by applying the same tactics back at them.

Says Tushar Sighat, VP-Operations, Cyberoam, “With the current terror situation in India and the use of Internet to perpetuate terror attacks, CEH holds immense value to government and corporations alike. This gives certificate holders a real competitive advantage to their careers. Further, as a responsible security player, it is part of Cyberoam’s commitment to the security industry in India to enhance security knowhow and bring security best practices to the industry.”

Over and above Cyberoam Security Certifications like CCNSP and CCNSE, the CEH certification enhances the technical and business knowledge of the holders and adds real value to their careers. Given the fact that hackers are getting smarter and more organized in their efforts to cause real damage, the certification is recognized by leading corporations and government bodies across the world as indispensable to keeping their networks safe from intruders.

“We applaud Cyberoam’s initiative in providing strong value-addition to its key partners and installed base of clientele throughout India by way of offering them access to CEH certified program through corporate subsidies. This demonstrates Cyberoam’s strong commitment and acute understanding of the information security landscape in that offering the CEH certification will help their clients and build much needed technical expertise to enhance the security overall experience,” says Jay Bavisi, President for EC-Council. “As cyber attacks increase in the multifold, corporations and governments are actively looking for ways to strengthen the security of their network. Cyberoam’s initiative in offering CEH is set to accommodate the growing demand for certified security professionals,” continued Jay. “Cyberoam’s initiative in offering CEH enlarges the set of personnel with this expertise, enhancing network security.”

Formed in response to the 9/11 attacks in USA with the aim of creating the right tools and education that would tackle future cyber terrorism, EC-Council’s CEH Program prepares individuals in the specific network security discipline of Ethical Hacking from a vendor-neutral perspective. The program seeks to fortify the application knowledge of security officers, auditors, security professionals, site administrators, and anyone concerned about the integrity of their network infrastructure.

“As an EC Council accredited training partner, we at Spectrum take pride in being one of the premier institutions which offer CEH certification,” says Ajay Singh Chauhan, CEO, Spectrum FZ LLC. “The fact that our trainers have been rated the best is a reflection of the internal planning and processes we have in place to ensure training and certification of the highest quality.
