Candidates must pass two tests in the CompTIA A+ Core Series: Core 1 (220-1001) and Core 2 (220-1002), which cover the following new content:
- Demonstrate basic security knowledge for IT support personnel.
- Configure device operating systems such as Windows, Mac, Linux, Chrome OS, Android, and iOS, as well as client-based and cloud-based applications (SaaS).
- Apply best practices for documentation, change management, and scripting to troubleshoot and solve fundamental service and support concerns.
- Basic IT infrastructure and networking are supported.
- Configure and maintain PC, mobile, and Internet-of-Things (IoT) device hardware.
- Basic data backup and recovery mechanisms should be implemented, as well as data storage and management best practices.
CASP+ is the only hands-on, performance-based cybersecurity certification available for practitioners, not managers, at the advanced skill level. CASP+ trained professionals figure out how to execute solutions within those policies and frameworks, while cybersecurity managers help determine what policies and frameworks could be applied.
CompTIA Cloud Essentials+ is the only internationally recognized, vendor-neutral certification that validates data-driven cloud recommendations by applying core business principles and core cloud concepts. When entrusted with making current cloud technology decisions, it distinguishes out in this industry by demonstrating that all relevant staff members – not just IT specialists – understand how to boost productivity, control expenses, and reduce security concerns for enterprises.
CompTIA Cloud+ is the only cloud-focused certification recognized for DoD 8570.01-M, and it provides an infrastructure option for those seeking certification in IAM Level I, CSSP Analyst, or CSSP Infrastructure Support positions. CompTIA Cloud+ now offers a variety of flexible training choices, such as self-paced learning, live online training, custom training, and labs, to help IT professionals grow their careers in server administration. The new CompTIA Cloud+ CV0-003 exam has been released. Late in December 2021, CompTIA Cloud+ CV0-002 (English language version) will be retired.
CompTIA CySA+ is the only intermediate-level high-stakes cybersecurity analyst certification that includes both performance-based and multiple-choice questions. CySA+ highlights not only the candidates' capacity to proactively collect, monitor, and respond to network traffic findings, but also software and application security, automation, threat hunting, and IT regulatory compliance, all of which affect security analysts' daily work. Threat intelligence analysts, application security analysts, compliance analysts, incident responders/handlers, and threat hunters use CySA+ to learn the most up-to-date core security analyst skills and upcoming job skills used by threat intelligence analysts, application security analysts, compliance analysts, incident responders/handlers, and threat hunters, bringing new techniques for combating threats both inside and outside the Security Operations Center (SOC).
CompTIA ITF+ assists professionals in determining whether a career in IT is right for them or in developing a broader understanding of IT.
- ITF+ is the only pre-career certification that assists students and career changers in determining whether they have a competency for information technology and whether it is the right career path for them.
- ITF+ is the only single certification that covers all areas of IT foundations, allowing non-technical professionals to gain a broader understanding of IT.
- ITF+ creates an IT education framework for middle and high school students.
CompTIA Linux+ validates the skills of IT professionals who have hands-on experience configuring, monitoring, and supporting Linux-based servers. The new exam places a greater emphasis on the following topics: security, kernel modules, storage and virtualization, enterprise device management, git and automation, networking and firewalls, server side & command line, server (vs. client-based) coverage, troubleshooting, and SELinux.
What Skills Will You Acquire?
- Concepts of Networking: Explain the purpose of various networking concepts and how to use them effectively.
- Infrastructure is important: Determine and explain the proper cabling, device, and storage technologies.
- Network Administration: Apply best practices to network management, policy development, and business continuity.
- Network Security: Physical security and common attacks should be summarized while securing the wired and wireless network.
- Troubleshooting & Tools for Networks: Explain the network troubleshooting methodology and tools needed to support connectivity and performance.
CompTIA PenTest+ is the only penetration testing exam that is administered at a Pearson VUE testing center and includes both hands-on, performance-based questions and multiple-choice questions to ensure that each candidate has the skills, knowledge, and ability to perform tasks on systems. The PenTest+ exam includes management skills that are used to plan, scope, and manage weaknesses rather than just exploit them. PenTest+ is distinct in that it requires candidates to demonstrate hands-on ability and knowledge of testing devices in new environments such as the cloud and mobile, in addition to traditional desktops and servers.
What makes it unique? CompTIA Project+ is ideal for professionals who need to manage smaller, less complex projects as part of their other job responsibilities but who also need foundational project management skills. Project+ is a more versatile certification than others because it covers essential project management concepts that go beyond the scope of a single methodology or framework.
The Security+ certification opens the door to a lucrative career in cyber security. CompTIA Security+ is a global certification that validates the minimum skill level necessary to be a foundational member of the IT security field and follow a career in the field. Why is it so different?
- More security professionals have selected Security+ Security+ is the preferred certification for corporations and defense organizations. It is more commonly used by these organizations than any other certification on the market to validate baseline security skills and to meet DoD 8570 compliance.
- Hands-on security skills are tested through the Security+ certification. The only baseline cybersecurity certification is made to be a hands-on practical skill set, ensuring that the cybersecurity professional is better prepared to deal with the challenges of today's more complex problems.
- Security+ is utilized in additional job roles to make up for lacking skills Today's job roles demand much more technical knowledge than before, and more companies are relying on baseline cybersecurity skills to secure their systems, software, and hardware.
- The latest and greatest trends and techniques are intertwined with security+ It is ensuring that candidates have highly advanced core technical abilities in risk assessment and management, incident response, forensics, enterprise networks, hybrid/cloud operations, and security controls, all while providing industry-leading training and performance.
