CENTENNIAL, Colo., April 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VirtualArmour International Inc. (the “Company”) (CSE:VAI) (3V3:F) (OTCQB:VTLR), a premier managed services provider, has established the VirtualArmour Academy, a new institution for cybersecurity education and training. The company celebrated the grand opening of the academy at its security operations centers in Salt Lake City, Utah and Middlesbrough, England.
The academy was developed by VirtualArmour’s vice president of Managed Services, Andrew Douthwaite, in association with University of Utah and Tees Valley Cyber College of Teesside, England.
Tees Valley Cyber College is aimed at driving employment across digital industries and strengthening a national campaign to thwart cybercrime. The mission of the University of Utah’s School of Computing includes achieving excellence in working with industry, government, educators and the community to advance computing, and serve the needs of these organizations and groups.
VirtualArmour earlier recruited four engineers from the two colleges who are now excelling in their position. The company anticipates that graduates of the VirtualArmour Academy will help support the growth of its Managed Services business in the U.S. and Europe.
“Intellectual capital is one of our greatest assets,” said Douthwaite. “There is also a scarcity of cybersecurity talent and the expectation by most employers for experience even for entry level positions. So, we established the VirtualArmour Academy for students to further develop their knowledge and skills, and become the best managed service engineers in cybersecurity. We expect future graduates to bring new ideas, energy and enthusiasm to VirtualArmour, as we expand our engineering teams in 2018.”
VirtualArmour was listed on the 2017 Cybersecurity 500 List, which recognizes the best cybersecurity companies in the industry. Juniper Networks also recognized VirtualArmour as “Partner of the Year” in the Innovation category for its development of solutions which expertly integrate Juniper technologies. The company was ranked seventh in Branham’s Top 25 Movers and Shakers list for 2017.
