ISG Receives Specializations
HOLLAND — ISG, a Cisco Premier Partner, recently achieved two additional technical specializations.
Cisco Premier Partners are required to meet rigorous requirements for certification expertise and ISG is one of only four technology providers in the state of Michigan and the only one in West Michigan with these two high level Cisco certifications.
Through engagement with Cisco, ISG IT strategists have in-depth access to a variety of exclusive resources and early product information. Resources include priority access to a Cisco support team, non-disclosure evaluation of new products and technologies as well as sales tools and events to make sure that ISG sales and technical staff are equipped with knowledge about Cisco’s latest technology and future direction.
Select ISG employees have also been given certification by Cisco.
“Cisco recognizes ISG as having knowledge and expertise in designing, installing and supporting a comprehensive network security solution,” said James Placer, ISG security analyst. “We provide top of the line security services to all our customers from latest enterprises to smaller companies.”
Placer’s certification as a Cisco Certified Security Professional distinguishes him as a highly skilled individual with expertise in the design and implementation of Cisco secure networks.
The certification also qualifies Placer as a firewall specialist, an IDS specialist and VPN specialist. Placer has also met all requirements set forth by the National Security Agency to become an information systems security professional. This certification means that Placer is required to provide security recommendations that ensure companies follow federal security standards.
Jorge Paramo, ISG technical engineer, recently met all requirements to become a Cisco wireless field engineer leading to ISG’s distinction as a Cisco Wireless LAN Certified Partner. With this certification, Cisco recognizes ISG’s expertise in building and maintaining end-to-end wireless network connections throughout or between buildings, without the limitations of wires or cables.
“Eliminating the need for expensive wires and cables, our clients will see cost effective alternatives in Wireless LAN solutions,” said Paramo.
