CYBEROAM LAUNCHES SECURITY CERTIFICATION PROGRAM FOR PARTNERS AND VALUE ADDED RESELLERS

The Program Offers Expertise in Networking and Identity-Based Security

Ahmedabad, India – 16th July, 2008

Cyberoam, a leading provider of Identity-based Unified Threat Management appliances (UTM), today announced the launch of the Cyberoam Security Certification Program, aimed at fulfilling the market need for certified professionals in identity-based security, which organisations are increasingly adopting. The certification program consists of two certifications – Cyberoam Certified Security Professional (CCNSP), the first level of the program, and Cyberoam Certified Security Expert (CCNSE).

The Cyberoam Security Certification gives in-depth understanding of networking and security concepts in addition to training for expertise in the deployment of Cyberoam Unified Threat Management series.

“The certification adds significant value to the trainee’s career path,” says Harish Chib, VP – New Business Development, Cyberoam. “With enterprises increasingly adopting identity-based security, the certification provides confirmation of the knowledge and understanding gained by the trainee in the future direction that network security is taking.”

CCNSP offers expertise in the installation and configuration of all Cyberoam features and functionality while the CCNSE professional offers expertise in product installation, integration, support and management, advanced deployment and advanced troubleshooting. Trainees who have successfully cleared CCNSP are eligible to apply for CCNSE.

Although training is not mandatory to appear for the certification exams, successful completion of the instructor-led Cyberoam training programs is recommended for hands-on experience and in-depth understanding of topics. The rigorous certification standards require a minimum of 80% or higher to pass the exams. Cyberoam’s experienced pre-sales team, which has live implementation expertise and in-depth knowledge on the subject, offers instructor-led training on demand.

Mr Derek Standley of Standley Technical Services, Cyberoam partner in UK, said, “I was part of one of the first batches of CCNSPs. By putting me through real-world scenarios and hands-on implementation, the program didn’t just update me on the latest networking and security concepts, it also helped me do the complete deployment and configuration of Cyberoam with efficiency and customisation to the organisation’s network. It offered me valuable practical experience.”

Thoughtfully designed by security professionals with a vast amount of experience in the networking and security field, the program brings the trainees up-to-date in networking and security while increasing the trainee’s efficiency in maximising the benefit from Cyberoam appliances. Thus, it adds significant value to the certified professional’s career.
