VASCO SEAL announces new e-learning course for latest IDENTIKEY Server 3.3
OAKBROOK TERRACE, Illinois and ZURICH, Switzerland – VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (Nasdaq: VDSI) (www.vasco.com), a leading software security company specializing in authentication products, presents its IDENTIKEY 3.3 Essentials training via e-learning on the SEAL platform. This method is now available for VASCO’s Certified Engineers (VCEs), altogether for more than 1,000 people.
SEAL is VASCO’s worldwide community of security professionals. The SEAL training offering consists of general IT security topics and VASCO product trainings. Through classroom training and the latest e-learning, VASCO SEAL allows a Certified Engineer to stay up-to-date on the latest security trends, develop new skills in IT security and get access to a community with an extensive IT security knowledge base.
VASCO’s products are used worldwide. Customers have to rely on the company for updates and support. However, VASCO recognizes the importance of local embedding. Therefore, local engineers are schooled to acquire a VASCO Certified Engineer certificate, in order to implement VASCO’s solutions and provide adequate and thorough support on a local scale. Yet, VCEs live in all the four corners of the globe. On that account, VASCO decided to provide the IDENTIKEY Server 3.3 Essentials course also via e-learning, thereby avoiding large expenses and long travel hours.
IDENTIKEY 3.3 is the latest update of VASCO’s authentication server for strong user authentication and e-signature validation. Moreover, this version is compliant with the PCI DSS regulations. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard is a worldwide standard charged by large credit card companies. To acquaint VASCO’s VCEs with this new software, classroom trainings are replaced by a money and time saving e-learning module.
The advantages of e-learning are manifold. First of all, its flexibility is appreciated. Learners from all over the world can attend the course whenever and wherever they want, 24/7. An even more important benefit is the module-based structure. A learner can deal with the information at his or her own pace. The system allows the learner to skip or repeat subject matters. Particularly the latter is interesting with an eye to the examination at the end of the course, to prove that one is fully qualified to acquire VASCO’s certification. This e-learning module is now available and already in use for every engineer that has already obtained a valid certification earlier.
“Since we are an international company, it was an obvious decision to provide IDENTIKEY 3.3 Essentials in an e-learning module. It is efficient and time-saving, not only for VASCO, but also for the Certified Engineers we are proud to have all over the world,” says Jan Valcke, President and COO at VASCO Data Security. “We believe that this e-learning module is a rich, personalized and repeatable experience process.”
VASCO is a leading supplier of strong authentication and e-signature solutions and services specializing in Internet security applications and transactions. VASCO has positioned itself as a global software company for Internet security serving a customer base of approximately 10,000 companies in more than 100 countries, including approximately 1,700 international financial institutions.
