• Ingram Micro becomes Cisco Advanced Security certified

        • Ingram Micro UK & Ireland has announced its new Cisco Advanced Security accreditation. Ingram Micro is prioritising security and has invested in Virtual Security Operations Centre (VSOC) to deliver on its commitment to build a strong Cybersecurity division. Alongside this, Ingram Micro has invested in gaining the right certifications to support and enable partner communities.

          For Ingram Micro’s Cisco Sales team, passing the Advanced Security accreditation means that they are able to deliver and accelerate Security business with partners. Building on a solid foundation, the sales team is now equipped to deliver Cisco’s solutions and technologies with Advanced Security. VSOC is a significant addition to this foundation, and further enables and strengthens Ingram Micro’s Cybersecurity division.

          Channel partners will be enabled with the correct skills, technologies, tech support and solutions necessary to ensure their businesses are Cyber Secure. Cisco is making multiple investments via acquisition in this space. Security is a fragmented market and being able to offer Security Services alongside the specific Cisco certifications gives Ingram a unique offering and opportunity to deliver expertise to joint partners.

          Scott Murphy, Director of Advanced Solutions at Ingram Micro said, “we understand the opportunity for our partners and vendors around Cyber Security and how vital it is - they need to be confident in the support provided by their Distributor. Ingram Micro Advanced Solutions continues to make investments like this, including the Cisco business unit. It’s great to see the team picking up the challenge and gaining this accreditation. Combining this with us providing Cyber Security Professional and Managed Services we aim to enable partners to generate, propose, close and manage Cisco Advanced Security Solutions.”
