Bell Micro issues security training alert to channel

Urges resellers to climb on board

IT distie Bell Micro has kicked off a new security training scheme for its channel partners.

The Security Sales Academy will take place at its Chessington World of Adventures site and will be punted to small to medium sized (SMB) and enterprise businesses in an attempt at raising the G-force skill level among sales staff.

Bell Micro said it planned to tout security solutions to reseller staff by providing a one-day security overview course followed by a more extensive two-day product training session.

To encourage resellers to sign up to the training scheme, the distie said participants will have access to offers from a number of vendors including Barracuda, Clearswift, IBM's Internet Security Systems, McAfee, and Symantec.

And, like forcing yourself onto that crazy rollercoaster one more time, Bell Micro said it will continue to train participants post-Academy.

Meanwhile, any channel partner that throws a whole team of people into the new scheme will receive exclusive marketing and access to campaigns with the sponsoring vendors. No mention of a free ride on the Runaway Train, however. ®
