SonicWALL awards Bell Micro Authorised Training Centre status

Chessington, Surrey – The Security division of Bell Micro, a specialist value added distributor of high-tech products, solutions and services, today announced the first of its SECURE THE DEAL training courses, to provide the SonicWALL authorised CSSA accreditation course nationally.

Through its recently launched SECURE THE DEAL programme, Bell Micro will educate both security specialist and non-security resellers to proactively recommend vendor products and then seamlessly attach the security solution. Offering training is an important component in helping resellers to build their skills to grow their businesses and the SonicWALL CSSA training is the first in a series of new, hands on, instructor led courses which will ensure delegates have the required knowledge and experience to begin designing, implementing and supporting SonicWALL security appliances, running SonicOS enhanced firmware. With such an accreditation in their armoury resellers will then be able to offer a more complete solution to their customers.

“For those resellers with a basic understanding of networking technologies, and who have a familiarity with firewall principles, this course will enable them to provide to their customers an initial setup and configuration of SonicWALL Firewall,” explained Steve Browell, General Manager, Security Division, Bell Micro. “It will also demonstrate how they can drive sales through a better understanding of business critical functionality, such as VPNs, content filtering and unified threat management, all of which can be delivered through SonicWALL appliances.”

SECURE THE DEAL is an initiative to bring the reseller and vendor community closer together in order to drive forward mutual business benefits. SonicWALL will directly benefit from being able to address new potential markets and customers through a broader reseller base that engages with thousands more customers.

“We have a great supporting package for those resellers eager to better understand the value of deploying our products,” said Andy Zollo, Regional Director, Northern Europe at SonicWall. “Those attending the course will also benefit from being given access to our online forum, second level technical support where available, a free student SonicWALL appliance and an opportunity to participate in the SonicWALL beta programme. They will also attain the SonicWALL CSSA accreditation.”

Customers will continue to benefit from Bell Micro’s experience and technical expertise as security consultants, ensuring SonicWALL solutions are successfully delivered in a timely fashion, and that the potential of any implementation is well understood through ongoing training and targeted skills transfer.
