      Are you looking for a career in Information Technology? The Check
      Point Certified Security Administrator (CCSA) certification is a
      good choice to add to your credentials as a Network Security
      specialist.

      The CCSA has not only become a highly recognized and sought after
      credential to help you get the job, it verifies your knowledge
      and improves your practical application skills to help you keep
      the job.

      As a company, Check Point Software Technologies has become the de
      facto standard among corporate firewalls, security gateways, VPN
      appliances and software. There are no other security applications
      that are more widely used in Fortune 500 companies, medical,
      legal and government organizations.

      Whether it is for Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, HIPAA, or meeting
      the requirements for the PCI Data Security Standard, Check Point
      appliances and software consistently outperform the competition.

      Obtaining CCSA certification is vital for network engineers,
      network security specialists, security administrators and anyone
      tasked with managing a Check Point device.

      While the course outline indicates that no prior experience is
      required, a firm knowledge of operating systems, servers, network
      topologies and protocols will ensure your success in this course
      work.

      Most experts will agree that the CompTIA A+ and Microsoft
      Certified Professional (MCP) certifications are good starting
      points, but your choice of other certifications will depend on
      your career objectives.

      During the CCSA training course you'll learn details about basic
      networking security including:

      * How to create a security policy and establish rules;

      * Network Address Translation;

      * How to use traffic monitoring tools, block attacks and audit
      reports;

      * Configuration of various authentication schemes;

      * LDAP Integration;

      * Establishing virtual private networks (VPN) between networks;

      * Backup and Restore of Check Point applications.

      In addition you'll learn about a variety of Check Point products
      and how they can be used to secure a company's network, filter
      email, manage access to Internet content with URL filtering, and
      tune a network to handle Voice over IP (VoIP).

      Common to all Check Point appliances is a powerful software
      operating system, which enables organizations to perform all
      aspects of security management via a single, unified console.

      If you are already a highly skilled network specialist, or if you
      already have other industry certifications, you may require a
      week or two of concentrated study time. Others with basic
      computer and network skills will need at least 4 weeks to
      complete the CCSA study course.

      Don't cheat yourself - the exam can be tricky. Take advantage of
      the practice exams and repeat them until you can pass at least
      three times before attempting the certification exam.

      Once you have passed the CCSA exam don't expect to be an expert
      for long; technology changes and constant continuing education is
      critical. Keep your skills sharp, expand your library, and add
      other industry certifications to your portfolio.

      Not only will you be able to proudly display your CCSA
      certificate, you'll have the knowledge and skills to increase
      your value to your employer, which as you know could potentially
      increase your salary as you prove your worth time and again.
