SonicWall has announced its partnership with The Conference of Italian University Rectors (CRUI) to promote and enable mutual collaboration in research, development, transformation and digital innovation activities. The new arrangement will deliver web training, real-time cyber threat intelligence, accreditation and certification capabilities to participating universities through the SonicWall University.
“Sharing threat intelligence, coupled with the education of masses to more adequately defend themselves in the escalating cyber war, is crucial to the online safety of universities that house highly sought after information,” said SonicWall President and CEO Bill Conner. “We look forward to working alongside CRUI to build a stronger cyber alliance against criminals lurking to destroy reputations and illegally obtain what is not theirs through insidious cyberattacks.”
Role-based web training will be conducted through the SonicWall University platform and will cover topics such as cloud security, advanced persistent threats (APT), secure remote access, secure access service edge (SASE) and the principles of zero-trust security. Training and webinars will be led by SonicWall security researchers and experts who are dedicated to providing training that educate and empower organizations and universities as they operate in the face of increasingly targeted and powerful cyber threats.
“SonicWall’s continued commitment to not only provide security but also threat intelligence and training to both private and public sectors is a commitment we look to provide all of our trusted partners,” said SonicWall Vice President, Global MSSP & Carrier Sales, Luca Taglioretti. “This partnership will help us meet the changing needs of the academic world and its increasing reliance on technology.”
