Security Certification Program Set Up By McAfee

McAfee : 19 January, 2011  (Company News)
Certification now available from McAfee for security professionals engaged in the installation, setup and administration of the company's products
The newly launched McAfee Security Certification Program consists of two “tracks”: The McAfee Certified Product Specialist track, which supports the McAfee award winning product solutions and the McAfee Certified Assessment Specialist track which has been developed around the McAfee Foundstone Ultimate Hacking assessment methodology. The McAfee Certified Product Specialist track is designed to allow the users of McAfee technologies to demonstrate competency around the effective installation, configuration and administration of key McAfee products.



The McAfee Certified Assessment Specialist track is designed to allow security practitioners to demonstrate deep technical assessment skills in the area of penetration testing and ethical hacking.



Along with the launch of the overall program, McAfee is announcing the global availability of two certification exams. The McAfee Certified Product Specialist exam’s first release focuses on McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) platform. Achieving a passing score on this exam grants the title of McAfee Certified Product Specialist- ePolicy Orchestrator. The McAfee Certified Assessment Specialist exam’s initial release is based on network assessment. Achieving a passing score on this exam grants the title of McAfee Certified Assessment Specialist- Network. Additional exams will be added to create a full curriculum of deep, continually updated security certifications.



“Earning a McAfee Certified Product Specialist or a McAfee Certified Assessment Specialist Certification helps IT professionals stand out by exhibiting the skills required to perform the job function covered by those certifications,” said Ray Komar, senior director of Global Education Services at McAfee. “Certification distinguishes individuals who have demonstrated superior levels of technical expertise that address enterprise security needs.”



The McAfee Security Certification Program covers both market-leading product technologies as well as cutting-edge security assessment techniques. The ability to validate both “defend” and “attack” competencies distinguishes the McAfee Security Certification Program, and those certified by it, from others in the marketplace.



The McAfee Security Certification Program is a valuable investment for the IT professional and employer. Those certified demonstrate the highest levels of technical competency and productivity, helping to lower operating cost, and improve levels of service and security.
