Network monitoring company, Paessler AG, has appointed Red Education its
first official training partner in Asia-Pacific to deliver training and
certification for its PRTG Network Monitor product to channel partners and
The program will also be a pilot for the vendor’s training and certification
in other regions.
The company was seeing an increase of PRTG installations across Asia-Pacific
of around 30 per cent so it made sense to approach this in a structured
Paessler AG senior sales manager A/NZ, George Wilson reported:
“We cover all of Asia-Pacific with our Paessler offering and so it is a
bolt on to our existing business and we have trained up a number of people
across the region to be able to deliver this portfolio of courses to the
market so there will be full coverage from day one across Asia-Pacific.
Because Paessler’s technology spreads beyond the network into the Internet
of Things (IoT), the vendor saw opportunity for partners to begin to develop
scripts for PRTG to address customer need.
There is going to be a demand to learn in depth how the system and
programmable tools work so then they [channel partners] can start deploying
PRTG outside the traditional network.
“I think it will be a very short time before the market starts making
enquiries as to whether we are offering those types of training and
certifications specific to industries.”
Paessler AG has a sole distribution agreement in Australia with Dicker Data.
