This specialization recognizes iPass Managed Network Services as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, install and support email and Web content security products.
“We help customers design, build and manage their Wi-Fi networks and partnering with Cisco to offer a Secure Web Gateway was the most intelligent choice. With the explosion in the use of mobile devices and cloud applications, offering secure guest Wi-Fi and employee Wi-Fi is of the utmost concern for our customers. Cisco’s Secure Web Gateway utilizes the most comprehensive scanning detection against web threats allowing us to provide the best security available for Wi-Fi network deployments,” said Chris Linden, vice president and general manager of iPass MNS. “We can integrate this secure web gateway with new or existing Wi-Fi architectures to provide a complete end-to-end solution encompassing content filtering, virus and malware scanning.”
The Cisco Advanced Content Security Specialization creates an opportunity for Cisco partners to help customers reduce costly downtime associated with email-based spam, viruses and Web threats. Partners with the Advanced Content Security Specialization extend their expertise to include deploying Cisco IronPort email and Web security solutions.
The Cisco Resale Channel Program provides partners with the training required to build sales and to improve their design and technical skills that are then validated through a third-party audit.
