CCNA: Security

Over the last 5 years, Cisco systems have emerged as a driving force in the IT hardware market. Combine this with the surging job growth that the IT security industry has been experiencing, and it’s easy to see why a Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Security certification is so valuable. When you enroll in our CCNA Security Course & Certification Training, you’ll become proficient in the skills required to secure and maintain complex Cisco networks. Plus, you’ll be prepared to sit for the CCNA Security exam. 

Security is one of the fastest-growing areas in the IT industry, with almost double-digit job growth yearly. You can capitalize on this growth by keeping your skills fresh and gaining the credentials that will keep you a step ahead of your colleagues. The CCNA Security credential is recognized throughout the industry and will help you increase your marketability and add value to your organization.

In this CCNA certification prep course for the Security exam, you will learn about core security technologies, the installation, troubleshooting, and monitoring of network devices to maintain integrity, confidentiality and availability of data and devices, and competency in the technologies that Cisco uses in its security structure.
