March 8, 2016 (AUSTIN, TX) Netgate®, the leading provider of open source security solutions, today announced the offering of official pfSense instructor-led training available in Bournemouth, UK April 7-8 and London, UK April 12-13, 2016. The pfSense Fundamentals and Advanced Application course is designed to help network administrators manage and maintain a network using pfSense® software as one of the core elements.

The complexity in attacks is increasing. New technologies, such as BYOD, the rapid proliferation of the Internet of Things, machine-based learning, containers and big data all have security implications for organizations of any size. Meanwhile, attackers continue to improve their skills, and many are better-funded by nation states and organized crime. pfSense open source security software provides feature-rich security services and perimeter security in today’s threat-sensitive business environment unencumbered by traditional annual contracts, licensing fees, or artificial limitations.

“To block today’s security threats, customers are looking for advanced security solutions to safeguard their networks. Offering this training demonstrates our ongoing commitment to delivering stable and reliable security products for over ten years, while also enhancing our customer’s confidence and ability to provide comprehensive security protection and exceptional performance using pfSense software as a core component of their security architecture.” said Jim Thompson, CTO of Netgate.

These two-day training events provide real-world scenarios using virtual interactive lab environments. Each session combines classroom instruction with tailored, hands-on experiences, in live network environments. The instructors have extensive networking and pfSense-specific experience to provide practical skills applicable to the real world. All training materials are provided.

“This in-country training is going to be great for the delegates because it’s more focused and personalized, and they will be able to ask more specific questions of the tutors. We chose Bournemouth and London because they have the best commuter access, some of the fastest internet access in the country and great accommodation. Bournemouth has just been identified as the fastest growing digital city in the UK.” said Chris Howard, director at Amica Technology.
