Security+ certification is a well-known credential that proves you understand information system security best practices.
If you are an experienced IT expert, we recommend that you pursue the CISSP certification.
However, you cannot easily dismiss the Security+ certification because practically all military IT security positions in the United States require SEC+ for the application.
Security+ is aimed at professionals seeking entry-level positions, whereas CISSP is aimed for IT experts with prior industry experience. Security+ prepares you to handle essential security functions, whereas CISSP prepares you to design, create, implement, and manage simple to sophisticated cybersecurity programs.
A single CompTIA Security+ exam voucher costs $381 USD. Averest will provide an extensive training course for the Security+ exam, the official Security+ Study Guide, practice exam questions, a certification exam voucher, and after-course coaching.

If you fail your first attempt, there is no waiting period between the first and second attempts to pass any CompTIA certification examination.
However, before your third (3rd) or any subsequent attempt to pass an examination, you must wait at least fourteen (14) calendar days from the date of your previous attempt to pass such examination.
Security+ can help you get a job in IT security as a systems administrator, security administrator, security expert, security engineer, network administrator, junior IT auditor/penetration tester, or security consultant.
