Testimonials

Hear what some of my clients and colleagues have to say about me after working together on various projects throughout my career.

Megan Monn

Experienced IT Technician

I am pleased to be able to highly recommend Martin Weiss as a Professor of Network Security at University of Maryland University College. I attended an online course in Spring of 2013 taught by Professor Weiss.
Professor Weiss has over 20 years’ experience in the information technology field. He brings this knowledge and experience to the classroom. Having an instructor who brings real world topics and scenarios into discussion is extremely useful. Those who are new to the Information Technology field may find this topic intimidating. Professor Weiss made this topic easy to understand and was accessible when I had questions. The coursework assigned included LabSim for CompTIA’s Security+ exam. These lab simulations were helpful in establishing the basic understanding of network security.
Professor Weiss is one of the best instructors that I have had. I would recommend his class to anyone looking to gain valuable information in the field of Networking Security.

I've had the privilege of working with Martin for the last 8 years and have always been impressed with his aptitude, attitude, and management style. As a customer-focused sales leader he has always demonstrated a high degree professionalism in aligning technologies and solutions to organizational needs. Martin enthusiasm and passion quickly becomes apparent and contagious when working with prospects, customers, and partners. I certainly would recommend him for any position that requires the unique combination of sales management, technical credibility, and strong leadership.
