Our Mission

Tech Data is committed to enabling new cybersecurity talent and significantly improving the skills of existing cybersecurity professionals in the partner channel and the end-user community.

Our immersive engagements in classes, workshops, boot camps, and exercises develop and refine cybersecurity professionals so they will make a difference in your business. Our goal is to develop these talented cyber-trained individuals for placement in partners and customers around North America.

Tech Data will leverage our Cyber Range for three core missions: Training, Demonstration and Engagement.

Training

The Tech Data Cyber Range will offer multiple forms of training courses designed for both individuals new to cybersecurity and those more advanced. These courses will be available both onsite at the Cyber Range facility and remotely via cloud delivered training methods.

Demonstration

As a solutions distributor, Tech Data is committed to providing our partner community with access to the most advanced cybersecurity technology available on the market through our vendor partners. We realize it can be confusing to understand the many solutions available, so Tech Data will leverage our Cyber Range as a solution center to test and engage with the many offerings of our trusted vendor partners. Available technology in the Cyber Range will include…

  • Firewalls
  • Intrusion Detection System
  • Identity and Access Management systems
  • Endpoint Security solutions
  • Cloud Security solutions
  • Mobile Security solutions
  • IoT Security solutions

Engagement

Tech Data is excited to offer the Cyber Range facility as a way for individuals to “feel and touch” cybersecurity and learn how crucial it is for companies to invest appropriately in their cyber defense. While many cyber services such as training courses and demonstrations of technology will be available remotely, engagement in the physical Cyber Range room will be available as well.

For those who visit, they will have access to a variety of cyber challenges to test their skills and compete with others in the room. We will also host many types of events at the Cyber Range such as workshops, seminars, certification study groups and vendor or partner hosted events.

If you are a Tech Data Vendor or a Partner and would like to schedule an event for your customers, please email TDCR-Staff@techdata.com .

Services

As partners struggle to find qualified cybersecurity engineers who can install security software, design security defensive architectures, configure complex firewalls and Security Information and Event Management systems, Tech Data has invested in these specialized skill-sets to ensure our partners are prepared to deploy technology quickly and efficiently.

Tech Data has invested in both consulting services and managed security services which are available to our partners after a project scoping call and development of a detailed Statement of Work.
