Security Innovation Delivers Application Security eLearning Courses in Japanese

Security Innovation, an authority in software security, announced today the availability of Japanese-language versions of its TEAM Professor™ computer-based training (CBT) courses. With topics ranging from security awareness to advanced coding techniques, organizations can use TEAM Professor™ to create customized training programs by role, skill level, or technology.

Of the 44 Japanese courses released, 11 are specific to secure software development in embedded systems, a critical platform for the consumer electronics, industrial automation and automotive industries.

“Some of the world’s most advanced software for traditional and emerging computing platforms is being developed in Japan. We are proud to be the first company to provide comprehensive on-line training in Japanese to help companies build security into their products and enterprise systems early in the software development lifecycle through a better trained developer community” said Pete Samson, Vice President of Market Development at Security Innovation. “As a core component of our TEAM Academy suite of education products, TEAM Professor has been the fastest growing and most respected eLearning platform for English speaking developers. The full value of this training can now be enjoyed by the rapidly growing community of Japanese developers writing innovative and mission critical software for the web, mobile platforms and embedded systems.”

TEAM Professor is already being used within a large multi-national corporation headquartered in Tokyo, who is now able to deploy Japanese versions to thousands of engineers worldwide. To accelerate usage in the Japanese market, Security Innovation formed a strategic partnership with NRI SecureTechnologies, part of the well-respected Nomura family of companies who are already successfully selling the training in Japan.
