Continuum, the Platform for What’s Next, announced that it will be launching Continuum Certify, a cybersecurity certification program that is specifically designed to provide education for MSPs on the fundamentals of modern cybersecurity. The new program is part of the Continuum Enable solution set. Continuum Certify will debut at Continuum’s signature conference, Navigate, which will be held in Pittsburgh and Las Vegas in October 2019.
As MSPs look to solve the urgent need to protect their SMB customers from advanced cybersecurity threats, Continuum Certify will help partners better prepare by deploying the best solutions, trainings, and knowledge needed to combat today’s greatest IT risks.
Structured on fundamentals common to many cybersecurity certifications, Continuum Certify will give MSPs the opportunity to develop a culture of security and integrate best practices for operating and selling cybersecurity, including Continuum Fortify solutions as part of their day-to-day business operations.
“By emphasizing the importance of education for IT professionals on overall security fundamentals and software best practices, we are doing something that has never been done before,” says Brian Downey, vice president of product management, Continuum. “While most certifications focus exclusively on a specific area of cybersecurity, Continuum Certify will help our partners build a foundational understanding of security plus have the knowledge to sell and operate our Continuum Fortify solution. This combination enables MSPs to talk with their customers about security effectively and confidently.”
“In this day and age of rising security threats, the MSP community needs a robust cybersecurity education program,” says Peter Melby, chief executive officer, Greystone Technology. “Implementing new cybersecurity solutions to the portfolio is not always straightforward, and educating users about today’s evolving threats is no easy task, which is why Continuum Certify is a viable step forward in the right direction to providing our customers with the strong support they need to be secure. Continuum Certify provides us the security know-how to influence our clients toward effective cybersecurity with the end goal in mind.”
Continuum Certify foundation and fundamentals courses will take place on September 30, 2019, in Pittsburgh, PA, and October 14, 2019, in Las Vegas, NV, a day before each of the respective Navigate conferences. Navigate Pittsburgh will be held on October 1-2, 2019, and Navigate Las Vegas on October 15-16.
