Pulse Secure, the provider of software-defined cloud secure access solutions, has signed training partnerships with Westcon EMEA, Nuvias Group and Spectrum Networks to deliver training courses to its reseller partners and customers across EMEA.
Following on from the North American launch of the vendor's Authorized Education Training Course curriculum earlier in the year, the Pulse Secure Training and Certification Program has authorised the new partnerships to prepare customers and reseller partners for the Pulse Secure Certified Technical Expert Certification exams in the UK, France, Sweden, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Portugal, United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
“Pulse Secure has always made its training towards certification available virtually,” said Sudhakar Ramakrishna, CEO of Pulse Secure. “Now, by expanding our Authorized Education Partnership base of providers, we can fulfill our business objective of delivering secure access solutions for people, devices, things and services by offering instructor-led, in-person, hands-on training in local languages.”
Pulse Secure became an independent company in 2014 after being spun off from Juniper Networks.
“As a technology training organisation, we have always focused on imparting the right skills needed for the successful implementation of products and solutions in the vendor, partner, customer ecosystem. We are looking forward to collaborate with Pulse Secure to add value in this space,” said Sanjeev Singh, MD of Spectrum Networks DMCC.
Sam Paris, VP EMEA of services and renewals at Westcon at Comstor, said: “Now is a great time for partners to join the Pulse Secure Access Now Partner Program, and we’re delighted to be selected as an ATC partner. This will help our partners gain extra knowledge, helping them differentiate in the marketplace and grow their business.”
The Pulse Secure Training and Certification Program includes training courses designed to help network engineers, enterprise system architects, technical support specialists and implementation consultants to successfully deploy and maintain Pulse Secure products and services.
After completing the training course, participants are prepared to take the Pulse Secure Certified Technical Expert exams. Local classes begin this month and will include training for: Pulse Policy Secure (PPS) - Deployment, Implementation and Configuration; Pulse Connect Secure (PCS) - Administration and Configuration; and Pulse Secure vADC - Administration and Configuration.
