CCNP SECURITY

Cisco CCNP Security Certification & Training Center

The most reliable CCNP Security Training institute in India, Octa Networks is providing CCNP Security Training Boot camps in Mumbai INDIA. Their track record speaks for their dedication and consistent efforts towards helping their students acquire technical know-how and preparing them for certification exams with proper hands-on training in their labs with advanced infrastructure.

The aim of CISCO’s modular CCNP Security training programs to cater to the various technological needs and demands of the individuals and the industry. CCNP Security certification program is planned to generate qualified and certified engineers who are responsible for security in routers, Switches, Networking devices, and appliances. The typical job role expects them to choose, deploy, support and troubleshoot firewalls, VPNs and IDS/IPS solutions for their enterprise networking environments.

The credibility, validation and global career growth prospects of the current CCNP Security are beyond doubt. National Security Agency (NSA) and the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS) recognize that CCNP Security courseware meets the CNSS 4013 training standard. United States Department of Defense 9DoD_ has certified and Approved CCNP Security certification as DoD 8570.01-M compliant for the IAT Level III category. These standards relate to some of the most technically advanced job roles and hence CCNP Security meets the highest levels of professional competence and performance. It automatically translates into better job and growth prospects.

The existing CCNP Security program will get revamped completely to reflect the realities of the networking requirements and business needs. Enhancing the existing CCNP Security program with the new realities of the networking world and the future demands of the marketplace is the objective of the revamped CCNPSecurity certification program.

On 24th Feb 2020, CISCO is REBOOTING the Certification program by launching CCNP security certification which will replace the existing CCNP Security program. Current CCNP examinations can be availed till 23rd Feb 2020. Newly revamped CCNP program takes effect from 24th Feb 2020.

Current CCNP Security program had the following examinations:

  • 300-206SENSS - Implementing Cisco Edge Network Security Solutions
  • 300-210 SITCS - Implementing Cisco Threat Control Solutions
  • 300-208 SISAS - Implementing Cisco Secure Access Solutions
  • 300-209 SIMOS - Implementing Cisco Secure Mobility Solutions

One of the main objectives of CCNP revamp is to move away from the ‘One Size Fits All’ approach to a modular approach wherein to achieve new CCNP certification in any track, the candidate will not have to pass more than 2 exams. Any additional specializations are most welcome but the candidate needs to pass a core exam and one of the concentration exam options available in the specific track. Besides the CCNP Security core exam also acts as qualifying criteria for attempting CCIE Security lab exam in the particular track.

CCNA is no longer a qualifying criterion for attempting CCNP Security. Candidates can straight away appear for CCNP Security examinations provided they have the necessary knowledge and grasp of the practical application of the knowhow.

To earn CCNP Security certification, candidates need to pass core exam which covers core enterprise technology and one concentration exam of his/her choice based on his/her technical area of focus or job role requirement.

In the revamped structure, if you pass core exam and one concentration exam in the same technology track, you can achieve your CCNP certification. CCNP has five tracks as of now (Enterprise, Data Center, Service Provider, Security and Collaboration). Each track has one specific core exam and a number of concentration exam choices. CCNP Security has 6 concentration exam options. CCNP Collaboration has 4 concentration exam choices. CCNP Enterprise has 6 concentration exam options. CCNP Data Center has 5 concentration exam options. CCNP Service Provider has 3 concentration exam options.
Once you clear the technology core exam, you can clear the CCNP exam within 3 years of passing the qualifying technology core exam to get the CCNP certificate too.

If you have cleared SENSS (300-206) only, then you need to clear new Core exam (300-701 SCOR) and you will get Cisco Certified Specialist – Web Content Security certificate too with the new CCNP Security certificate.

If you have cleared SIMOS (300-209) only, you will receive Cisco Certified Specialist – Network Security VPN Implementation and the new CCNP security certificate. If you have cleared SITCS (300-210), you will need to clear 300-701 SCOR exam to achieve the new CCNP Enterprise certification and you will receive Cisco Certified Specialist -       Network Security Firepower certificate.
