Ian Fewtrell, managing director, Enterasys Networks said, "Concerns over cybersabotage, and the protection of corporate information, are driving business to prioritise improved network security. Enterasys is helping to address these concerns by providing the first tools for our channel partners, so that they can solve their customer's security issues.
Business can be assured that when a Secure Harbour Certified organisation implements a solution for them, it will meet the highest standards for security," he said.

The ESS Secure Harbour Solutions course is an integral component of a complete certification track offered by Enterasys. Enterasys Specialist (ES) certification can be earned in any of three areas of Enterasys products and technologies - Switching, Router Configuration, and NetSight Element Manager. Certification as an Enterasys Systems Engineer (ESE) requires all three ES certification. ES and ESE certified technicians have proven the highest level of proficiency with the core Enterasys products and technologies.

Both programs focus on the Enterasys Secure Harbour solutions, products, and technologies. Completion of the ESS in Secure Harbour will result in an upgrade of an ESE designation to an ESSE designation.

About Secure Harbour
Secure Harbour is an architectural approach to network security that enables an organisation to monitor, control, or block access to network resources. By doing so, the integrity of the network, and ultimately the business, is protected. This also allows organisations to create comprehensive enterprise security structures that are made possible because they are independent of media or connection type. Offered through Enterasys authorised channels, the Secure Harbour architecture is the first security architecture that encompasses all facets of network infrastructure. Finally, it is an architecture that is scalable to any size of company or network traffic loads.
