(Reston, VA) – July 14th, 2010 – ZyEdge LLC announced that it has achieved the Advanced Security Specialization from Cisco®. This specialization recognizes ZyEdge as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support comprehensive, integrated Cisco network security solutions.
“ZyEdge recognizes the ever-increasing, highly-evolving and extremely complex nature of IT security and the need to stay abreast of the latest training and technology,” said Ben Gerenstein, President and CEO of ZyEdge LLC. “Achieving Advanced Security Specialization from Cisco means that ZyEdge customers benefit from our continuous high standards in IT security to maintain the safety and fidelity of their IT infrastructure.”
“As a Cisco Advanced Security Specialized Partner, ZyEdge’s investment in the training required to provide customers the advanced security solutions they need to develop a Cisco ‘Self-Defending Network’ ranks them among the industry’s most-qualified,” said Susan Don, director of security for worldwide channels at Cisco.
The Cisco Advanced Security Specialization is designed to help partners deliver a Cisco Self-Defending Network made up of integrated, collaborative and adaptive security solutions. This specialization enables partners to address the needs of a wide range of customers, from enterprise-scale organizations to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). It focuses on the entire suite of Cisco security products, including Cisco Security Agent; the Cisco Security Monitoring, Analysis and Response System (Cisco Security MARS); Cisco Network Admission Control and Cisco IOS® Software.
The Cisco Resale Channel Program provides Cisco security partners with the training required to build sales, technical and Cisco Lifecycle Services skills, and then validates their skills through a third-party audit. Cisco resale partner certifications—Select, Premier, Silver and Gold—represent an increasing breadth of skills across key technologies and a partner’s ability to deliver integrated networking solutions. Cisco resale partner specializations—SMB, Express, Advanced and Master—reflect an increasing depth of sales, technical and service expertise in particular technologies.
