ZyXEL steps up plans to recruit and enable security partners with free ZCNE training and accreditation

January 31, 2012

ZyXEL Communications UK, a world-class broadband networking company that provides leading Internet solutions for customers ranging from telecommunications service providers, small and medium-sized businesses to home users, is offering to provide free training for its ZyXEL CNE Level 1 Security course, which qualifies resellers to sell and install the company’s USG (Unified Security Gateway) family of unified threat protection solutions and become accredited as a ZyXEL Solution Partner.


The company has completed two training sessions for ZCNE Level 1 Security, accrediting an additional 38 partners. It has now scheduled an additional 12 training days for 2012 and plans to accredit a further 150 resellers over the year. The courses, which normally cost £300, will be available to any Registered ZyXEL partners that are keen to develop their competency to sell the company’s security solutions.


Antony Byford, Channel Sales Manager, UK and Ireland, for ZyXEL, states: “The course will arm resellers with the knowledge they need to take out ZyWALL appliances and other security solutions to market with confidence. We’ve enjoyed a lot of success with this range in both the enterprise and SME markets over the past few months and we see good potential for next year. We are planning to drive end-user interest through a number of activities and we want to increase the number of resellers that are accredited to provide advice and support on the products in order to maximise the potential.


ZyXEL will be working with its distribution partners, Computer 2000, Electronic Frontier Limited (EFL), Ingram Micro, and Micro P, to recruit partners for the Level 1 Security training.


ZyXEL’s USG solutions provide powerful real-time protection for assured service continuity, low cost-of-ownership and improved network control.  Its ZyWALL gateway security appliance series combine powerful stateful packet inspection (SPI) with anti-virus, intrusion detection and prevention (IDP), content filtering, anti-spam, and comprehensive VPN (IPSec/SSL/L2TP) capabilities in one box. These multilayered security appliances safeguard customers and their critical resources from both external and internal threats.

Successfully completing the ZCNE Level 1 Security course qualifies resellers as a ZyXEL Solution Partner, giving them access to additional discounts, account management, preferential support, and exclusive promotions and offers.


Resellers that want to find out more about the ZyXEL CNE Level 1 Security courses can get in touch with ZyXEL’s partner account management team on 01189 979 7277 or one of the company’s distributors – Computer 2000, EFL, Ingram Micro, or Micro P.
