11 May 2017

IT training firm Red Education has signed deals with Symantec and EC-Council, with a third vendor expected to be announced this week.

The partnerships are part of Red Education’s journey to become an Authorised Training Partner with the companies across the APAC region.

The partnership with Symantec will give Red Education access to the full Symantec course portfolio for its enterprise range of solutions.

“Cyber security is top of mind for every enterprise, Government agency and cloud provider, with the Asia Pacific region seeing astonishingly high levels of attacks in every region,” comments Red Education’s managing director, Rob Howard.

Howard says the company will provide full Symantec training, which complements current training schemes with the likes of Blue Coat.

Commenting on the partnership, Symantec Education Services senior manager Sarah Grace says Red Education was chosen for its experience in cybersecurity training. 

The company has also partnered with EC-Council, the International Council of E-Commerce Consultants.

Red Education will offer a range of EC-Council classes on a public schedule, as well as closed classes for customers.

“We see tremendous synergy in this partnership as Red Education is well experienced in delivering core cybersecurity technology training to Asia Pacific’s cyber security communities,” comments EC-Council’s COO, Sean Lim.

The company has also partnered with ForgeRock to become an Authorised Training Partner for Asia Pacific.

“Red Education is ready to empower the human element of managing these systems to minimise the ever-present risks,” Howard concludes.
