IT education firm Red Education has signed agreements with Symantec and EC-Council with a third vendor expected to be announced this week.
Alliances are part of Red Education's journey to become an Authorized Training Partner with companies throughout the APAC region.
The partnership with Symantec will give access to Red Education to the entire Symantec course portfolio for its suite of enterprise solutions.
"Cyber security is a top priority for all businesses, government agencies and cloud providers, and the Asia-Pacific region is experiencing staggeringly high levels of attacks in all regions," said Rob Howard, managing director of Red Education.
Howard says the company will offer Symantec's full training, which complements current training schemes with the likes of Blue Coat.
Commenting on the partnership, Symantec Education Services senior director Sarah Grace said that Red Education was chosen for its expertise in cyber security training.
The company has also partnered with EC-Council, the International Council of Electronic Commerce Consultants.
Red Education will offer a range of EC-Council classes in a public schedule, as well as closed classes for clients.
"We see tremendous synergy in this partnership as Red Education has a wealth of experience in providing basic cybersecurity technology training to Asia Pacific cyber security communities," said Sean Lim, EC-Council's chief operating officer.
A partnership with a third company is expected to be announced this week.
"Red Education is ready to empower the human element to manage these systems to minimize the ever-present risks," Howard concludes.
