Red Education, Authorised Training Partner for ForgeRock across the Asia Pacific and Japan regions, announced this week that it is now offering ForgeRock training courses in the United Arab Emirates.
With the expansion of the Internet of Things (IoT), we’re seeing a new range of challenges around the creation of digital identities and access policies for every large enterprise, Government agency, and cloud provider. ForgeRock’s technologies are the leaders in this space and Red Education is the sole Authorised Training Partner for ForgeRock in the JAPAC region.
With the explosion of identities come the associated problems of trusting and managing them. Sectors such as Financial Services, Manufacturing, Government, and Medical Industries all have millions of customers entering and requesting information. How do you easily manage and trust these incoming customers without jeopardizing the safety and security of your company data? And how do you do this without overburdening the I.T. department in the management of these identities? This is where ForgeRock comes in,” said Mike Baird, Managing Director at Red Education.
ForgeRock Identity Management is a cutting-edge solution that fully automates the entire identity lifecycle management process. Automation enables you to quickly create and provision new user accounts, seamlessly manage user access to target applications and resources, and quickly de-provision user accounts. The ForgeRock Certified Access Management Specialist course from Red Education is targeted at IT professionals responsible for administering and deploying ForgeRock Access Management solutions. The exam validates your ability to install, configure, administer, troubleshoot, and maintain components of ForgeRock Access Management.
This expansion into the UAE follows hot on the heels of ForgeRock’s permission to open up in the LATAM region to support, promote and grow training services.
“I am excited to have the opportunity to deliver ForgeRock technical training to IT professionals in the United Arab Emirates. We’re delighted to help Forgerock to build and expand training opportunities throughout the region. We work with some extremely large customers across the Financial Services Sector in ANZ and so our ability to support customers in the United Arab Emirates makes sense, they are a huge financial hub supporting the region. We see a great mutual benefit here,” said Mike Baird.
“According to Reuters Foreign Direct Investment into the UAE rose to $19.88 billion in 2020. This represents an increase of 44% in the previous year.”
“When global businesses move into the region and invest in enterprise cybersecurity solutions, they need to match that investment with training for their network engineers. There is a critical need to develop the skills to prevent cybersecurity breaches that can have a devastating impact.”
“It is also helpful for these international businesses to be able to work with one training provider across every country where they have a presence. As we expand our operations in the UAE, we can further support these organizations and gain a deeper understanding of their business needs with regard to training,” said Mike Baird.
