Boston, MA (USA), March 2017 - Skillsoft, a global eLearning provider, has been selected as an authorized content provider for the CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CSA+) certification.

The content is delivered through Skillsoft's new, state-of-the-art learning platform, Percipio.

"IT Certification is an increasingly competitive advantage for our customers - both for their businesses, as well as for attracting and retaining talent. Certification enables employees to showcase their understanding, knowledge, and expertise of a subject with demonstrable skills," says Bill Donoghue, chairman and CEO, Skillsoft. "For nearly twenty years, we have invested substantially in our IT content. Our partnership with CompTIA helps IT professionals constantly update their skills to meet the changing needs of the organization, from on-the-job troubleshooting to the most pressing IT security concerns."

CompTIA CSA+ was created based on widespread and unprecedented demand from the public and private sectors for a certification that fills a gap in cybersecurity credentials and addresses the unique role of the cybersecurity analyst.

"The security analyst’s job role is absolutely vital to the new data-driven and analytical approach that organizations are taking with cybersecurity," said James Stanger, senior director, products, CompTIA.
