ASX-listed services company Data#3 is eager to make the most of Cisco's specialist accreditation program, signing up as a Cisco Advanced Security Partner.
Data#3 is the first Australian-owned company to be certified as an Advanced Security Partner that enables the company to sell, design, install and support Cisco security offerings, according to a statement released by Data#3.
"This formal certification strategically enhances Data#3's Managed Security offerings, which focus on pro-actively managing illegal intrusion and monitoring our customers' networks," said Data#3 CEO John Grant.
In order to gain Cisco's Advanced Security Partner accreditation, Data#3 had to meet certain staff training requirements, including a qualified account manager for sales and customer engagement, a sales engineer and a field engineer. The integrator also has to provide on-site response to customer needs and a phone and contract support system using Cisco security products.
