The CompTIA CSA+ examination is designed for IT security analysts, vulnerability analysts, or threat intelligence analysts. The exam will certify that the successful candidate has the knowledge and skills required to configure and use threat detection tools, perform data analysis, and interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats, and risks to an organization with the end goal of securing and protecting applications and systems within an organization.

CompTIA CSA+ is for IT professionals looking to gain the following security analyst skills:

  • Configure and use threat detection tools.
  • Perform data analysis.
  • Interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats, and risks to an organization.

So, kick start your prep now with uCertify’s CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CSA+) course and broaden your skills.

In 2016, more than 5.2 million IT jobs contributed to the U.S. economy with an additional 2 million new job postings throughout the year. Peruse those posts, and you’ll find three CompTIA certifications specifically cited as job requirements in thousands of listings: CompTIA Security+, CompTIA A+ and CompTIA Network+.

CompTIA Security+

 CompTIA Security+ is the certification globally trusted to validate foundational, vendor-neutral IT security knowledge and skills. As a benchmark for best practices in IT security, this certification covers the essential principles for network security and risk management – making it an important stepping stone of an IT security career.

In response to CompTIA’s IT Career Insights Survey, 93 percent of IT professionals said they regularly work with security and cyber security technology. Even more importantly, according to CompTIA’s Common IT Employability Skills study, 62 percent of hiring managers in the United States indicated that candidates “must have” these skills to be considered for the job. Hands-on and strategic involvement with security technology makes CompTIA Security+ certification, as well as the forthcoming CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CSA+) certification, a vital part of an IT career, whether you want to enhance your skills for an existing job or apply for a new one.

CompTIA A+

It’s a known fact that IT training helps employees advance in their careers. The CompTIA A+ certification is perfect for individuals new to the field and IT professionals in transition. Because it tests a candidate’s knowledge on all fields of information technology and not on one particular domain, the CompTIA A+ certification is typically given more weight than other vendor certifications.

More than 23,500 job postings in 2016 required applicants to have CompTIA A+ certification. Validating the IT skills required by the most common hardware, software and operating systems while remaining vendor neutral, CompTIA A+ has long been a  foundational certification for IT professionals.

CompTIA Network+

Finally, more than 18,000 jobs posted in 2016 required CompTIA Network+ certification, a vendor-neutral, worldwide networking accreditation that validates an IT professional’s ability to design, configure, manage and troubleshoot both wired and wireless networks. Considering 92 percent of IT professionals in the United States worked with this technology in 2016, CompTIA Network+ is a valuable certification for almost any job applicant.

Although most online job postings do not specifically list IT certification requirements, employers know IT pros with CompTIA certifications are more capable of succeeding in their careers.

When accreditations are preferred, CompTIA Security+ is the fourth-most-requested certification in job postings, behind Certified Information Systems Security Professional, Project Management Professional, and Cisco IT certifications. CompTIA A+ and Network+ ranked 8th and 11th, respectively, according to the Burning Glass Technologies Labor Insights study.

Clearly, CompTIA professional certifications set job candidates apart in a competitive and constantly growing job market—one the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics expects to grow 12 percent in the network and computer systems industry over the next seven years.
