Exclusive Networks

A lynchpin at the centre of the cybersecurity ecosystem

Over the last two decades we have built a reputation as a cybersecurity specialist, building the market’s most comprehensive cybersecurity technology portfolio of leaders and innovators, whilst developing a global network of specialist channel reseller partners.

But now, we’re disrupting this established ecosystem, augmenting it with new, strategic alliances with Educational Institutions, Venture Capitalists as well as International and National Bodies.

Exclusive will leverage these partnerships to address challenges within the industry, share our expertise with a wider audience, and continue to drive new opportunities for the channel.

Educational Institutions

Guardia Cybersecurity School

Guardia Cybersecurity School is a private higher education school. Unique, it is designed by experts in education, cybersecurity and by companies in the sector. Aware of the major issues of national and European sovereignty, our mission is to transform the passion of young people for new technologies into skills.

Exclusive’s Role

Exclusive Networks have a proud history of training and educating industry professionals.  But the industry faces a skills crisis, and as an expert in the field, we feel we are well positioned within the ecosystem to proactively shape future cybersecurity talent.  Exclusive will work with Guardia to co-construct the educational curriculum to ensure that students graduate with real-world skills that equip them to move directly into a cybersecurity role in the channel.

California Polytechnic University

Learn by Doing has always been Cal Poly’s core philosophy.  It’s a deliberate process in which students, from day one, acquire knowledge and skills through active engagement and self-reflection inside the classroom and beyond it.  Experiences are a critical part of their curriculum, which shows students how theory combines with application and prepares them to use their knowledge to solve the world’s challenges. To do is to learn — that’s why their faculty infuse hands-on opportunities in every part of the learning experience.

But it doesn’t just happen in the classroom. From labs and internships to launching business ventures while in school, Cal Poly students take what they learn and put it to work. Learn by Doing isn’t just their signature learning philosophy — it’s their way of life.
The result of this experience is that Cal Poly graduates are ready, from day one, to make an immediate impact on the world around them in their careers and throughout the rest of their lives.

Exclusive’s Role

Through our partnership with Cal Poly, students will have the opportunity to work alongside our cybersecurity professionals and gain invaluable on-the-job experience throughout their time at Cal Poly.  Our goal is to ready the associates for a role in cybersecurity or more preferably at Exclusive Networks when they leave education.
