F5 Debuts Security Accreditation Program for Global Channel Partners

F5 Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:FFIV), the global leader in Application Delivery Networking (ADN), today announced a new, security-specific accreditation program designed for F5’s channel partners around the world. Following the launch of F5’s application delivery-focused accreditation program earlier this year, the security accreditation program provides partners with an in-depth understanding of the entire F5® security solution portfolio, including F5’s data center firewall solution.

Offered through the UNITY channel partner program, the security accreditation program comes at no cost to the F5 channel, helping resellers and distribution partners navigate the evolving security threat landscape, identify additional security-related sales opportunities, and increase revenue.

“F5 has a comprehensive security solution portfolio that offers channel partners an open field to identify new opportunities, enhance their profitability and increase market penetration,” said Dean Darwin, SVP, Worldwide Partner Organization at F5. “Through this accreditation, partners will drive new business and increase their understanding of the ever-changing security environment.”

Launched worldwide, the web-based security accreditation program features separate curricula for both sales and technical channel professionals, each with an exam required to achieve accreditation.

The training illustrates how F5® solutions can protect data center and application services, enhance user access, reduce management complexity, and improve performance.

“Today, enterprises must consider security as an integral and critical piece of their infrastructure,” said Tom Schmatz, VP of Channel Services Development at FishNet Security. “Security cannot be bolted on as an afterthought; it must be integrated to meet each customer’s unique environment. As an information security solutions provider, FishNet Security identifies solutions that match each organization’s evolving needs. F5’s channel certification program enables us to stay up to speed on the innovative F5 security solutions portfolio.”

“F5’s security accreditation is a well-designed modular learning tool that is above standards set by other vendors,” said Haydar Nergiz, Product Manager at COMPUTERLINKS in the United Kingdom. “Once partners have completed the modules and passed the exam, they should refer back to the training, as it becomes a valuable sales tool when looking for tips on how to best leverage F5 against the competition.”
