Firewall certifies an edge
Former integrator-turned-distributor Firewall Systems has been the first to graduate from the WatchGuard Certified Training Program (WCTP) in a bid to press home a competitive advantage over its security rivals.
John Labza, technical manager of Firewall, has been selling WatchGuard security products for four years and has just returned from an extensive training program at the vendor's Seattle headquarters. The certification enables the distributor to train and endorse resellers in WatchGuard's firewall and virtual private network (VPN) technologies.
