ArcSight Inc. (NASDAQ: ARST), a leader in enterprise security and compliance management solutions, today announced that Alternative Technology, a leading specialty distributor of thin-client/server-based computing, edge infrastructure, virtualization, and security solutions is an ArcSight Authorized Reseller Training provider in North America. Alternative Technology will provide ArcSight Logger Reseller Certification Training to its network of 3,000 resellers in the United States and Canada, as well as other ArcSight VARs, with classes beginning immediately.
“Enterprise interest in log management is strong as compliance requirements push organizations to get a grip on their log data,” said Chris Peterson, vice president of worldwide channel sales, ArcSight. “ArcSight Logger and its associated components enable organizations to cost-effectively collect, store, and manage log data, addressing these compliance requirements. Resellers are in a unique position to help deliver these solutions and, through this education initiative, we anticipate that they will develop required skills that lead to untapped consulting and service revenue opportunity.”
“Alternative Technology is excited to make this training available to our ArcSight channel reseller community,” said Lee Fawcett, vice president of technical services, Alternative Technology. “The demand for this training is high, and we have already completely sold out the first two available classroom offerings. This classroom training is designed to enable our channel partners to more effectively sell, install, service and support award-winning technology from ArcSight.”
ArcSight Authorized Resellers are eligible to obtain ArcSight Logger Certification. Students must attend training and pass the certification test at the end of class to attain the ArcSight Logger Certification. The class is broken down into three modules:
- ArcSight Logger Appliance Training
- ArcSight Connector Appliance Training (collects logs at remote sites and forwards to a central Logger)
- ArcSight FlexConnector Configuration Training (API tool set that allows collection of logs from non-standard devices)
The ArcSight Logger certification validates advanced knowledge and skills required to implement the ArcSight Logger, ArcSight Connector Appliance, ArcSight SmartConnectors and FlexConnectors. The ArcSight curriculum emphasizes Logger and Connector Appliance installation, set-up and techniques to combine these technologies in a single, integrated network solution.
ArcSight training is scheduled to be conducted at Alternative Technology locations in Denver, Fort Lauderdale, and Mississauga, Ontario, or arrangements can be made for onsite training.
