Rochester, New York – 9/27/2019 – GuruTeam, a leading provider of instructor-led IT Certification Training, announces the addition of in-demand cybersecurity and IoT certifications to their public training schedule thanks to their new partnership with CertNexus.

As companies navigate within the fourth Industrial Revolution, multi-vendor solutions are the norm to provide best in class results, ranging from customer experience to IT infrastructure. Whether it is a high-value innovation using an IoT solution or maintaining secure access to protect customer data through security protocols, it is the people responsible for maintaining and implementing the solutions that provide the greatest value and highest risk to an organization. As technology becomes the defacto solution across all industries, the need for critical training standardizations is more crucial than ever.

CertNexus is committed to providing certification programs that ensure employees have best-in-class skill sets to match their organization’s critical technology solutions. CertNexus’ certification programs in cybersecurity and IoT broaden an IT professional’s knowledge and validate skills using globally recognized curriculum and high stakes examinations.

Billions of dollars will be gained and lost in these areas over the next five years.  The IoT industry is on its way to becoming a $450 billion industry, according to Bain and Company, while the average cost of a cyber-attack on a company is $2.4 million (Accenture). For an organization to succeed in this environment, training and confirming skills is the best investment towards growth.

“There is a growing need to create awareness and educate all personnel with the increase of IT services and cybersecurity threats to all organizations.  We find CertNexus’ certifications are an invaluable solution for employees and companies who are looking to create a comprehensive, proactive approach to cybersecurity training. Our own internal team has been through the CertNexus’ cybersecurity certification program. It is an essential frontline cybersecurity measure which we would highly recommend to all organizations.” said Catherine Ascough, founder and CEO of GuruTeam.

“We’re thrilled to have GuruTeam as our newest Authorized Training Partner,” said Jeff Felice, President at CertNexus.  “We’ve developed courses and certifications that offer standardizations in the world of data security and IoT, and the fact that GuruTeam has expanded their offerings to include our courses further exemplifies the necessity to certify skill sets such as these. We’re excited to join forces and utilize their expansive network of locations to make this possible.”
