Wednesday, April 24, 2013 EC-Council, the world's leading provider of certifications and training in the information security domain, join hands with Institute of Advance Network Technology- IANT, to train maximum students and professionals across India.






IANT caters to over 10,000 students through its 100+ institutes across India and all of their students will go through an intensive course in Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) and EC-Council Certified Secure Programmer (ECSP).

According to the recent data, India needs 4.7 lakh cyber security professionals by 2015 for protection of IT infrastructure in the country as well as to serve the export market. As per a report by Gartner in 2011, the IT security market in India is estimated to be around USD 218 million (2012), with an annual growth rate of 20-30 percent and the market is expected to have a CAGR of 16.4 percent from 2011-2016.

To help bridge this gap of need and availability of skilled professionals, IANT, an ISO 9001 – 2008 certified institute, has taken the leadership position to offer EC-Council’s world famous certifications to its students to ensure that the graduates are significantly advanced in cyber security skills as compared to graduates from other colleges in India, that lack world recognized cyber security credentials like the ANSI -ISO 17024 accredited Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) and EC-Council Certified Secure Programmer (ECSP). This will help EC-Council, to develop outstanding professionals to meet the challenges of IT industry.

To prepare Indian youth to meet the challenges of information age, and make them cyber educative, EC Council is glad to collaborate with IANT, India's No 1 hardware & network institute. IANT, widely acclaimed for its quality team and state-of-art infrastructure brings forth highest number of quality IT students.

Rahim Kherani, Chairman, IANT said, “We are pleased that this partnership will help us educate students and better their knowledge in the cyber security domain. EC-Council is a renowned name in Information Technology certifications and trainings globally and this will be an excellent opportunity to build the future of a cybersecure India. Academic Institutes cannot afford to lay back and wait for the Government to do something. Instead, they need to be proactive and take measures to help the Nation to produce Cyber Warriors. Once again, we at IANT, have taken the leadership role in doing this for the Nation. ”

“EC Council is dedicated to strengthening cyber security in India and to tackle the issue of lack of skilled professionals we are partnering with training institutions across India. IANT is one of the largest training institutes in India and we are glad to come together with them to promote the awareness and education of cyber security. We aim to help India in creating its breed of cyber warriors to defend its cyber space and assets via academic partnerships with institutions like IANT,” said Jay Bavisi, President, EC-Council.

Jav Bavisi, President of EC Council and Rahim Kherani, Chairman & Managing Director of IANT, started their organizations with a vision to educate the youth of the nation. The patriotism towards their motherland encouraged them to work in the realm of education and bring India up to the global benchmark in the infosec space. With this tie-up both EC-Council and IANT eye to strengthen India for cyber war.
