Now more than ever, you need to ensure that your data is secure and safe from threats that could attack your network. This is why we offer so much security training.

Here are four of our top IT security courses that we think will help you to be as safe as possible in 2017!

1. CompTIA Security+ SY0-401

CompTIA's Security+ certification is internationally recognized as a validation of entry-level IT security skills and knowledge. Passing this exam verifies that you know all the basics when it comes to network security, and arguably it's the first certification learners should tackle.

Passing the exam certifies that you can identify risks, participate in risk mitigation activities, and provide infrastructure, application information, and operational security. Our course provides you with the knowledge of security controls to maintain confidentiality, integrity, and availability on a network.

If you want to expand your security knowledge, are preparing for an IT security certification, or making a career change, Security+ training will help you understand network security at its core.

2. Juniper JNCIS-ENT (JN0-343) Layer 2 Security

This course is actually part of our seven-part series designed to help you pass the Juniper JNCIS-ENT exam. The JNCIS-ENT exam certifies that you know the ins and outs of Layer 2 Security, including with Layer 2 Switching and VLANs, Spanning Tree Protocol, Protocol Independent Routing, Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS), Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), tunnels, and high availability.

Our Layer 2 Security course for Juniper JNCIS-ENT explains concepts, operation, and benefits of many different Layer 2 security functions and firewall filters. The training shows you just how to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot Layer 2 security features.

Our Layer 2 Security course for the Juniper JNCIS-ENT breaks down security within the Junos OS. Take the steps to learn about this specific course and eventually become a Juniper master, like Anthony Sequeira.

3. Cisco CCNA Security 210-260 IINS

Do you already have your CCENT? Then we have a secure next step for you to take. You need to gain the skills required to support a security infrastructure, recognize threats and vulnerabilities to networks and systems, and mitigate security threats on your Cisco network.

The CCNA Security exam addresses core security technologies for Cisco, as well as the installation, troubleshooting and monitoring of network devices to maintain confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data and devices. Our CCNA Security 210-260 training course covers security concepts, secure access, VPN, secure routing and switching, Cisco firewall technologies, IPS, as well as content and endpoint security.

Take a peek and learn how you can integrate your Cisco knowledge to build a fortress of security using a defense-in-depth approach with CCNA Security.

4. Cisco CCNP Security 300-207 SITCS

Want to take your CCNA Security even further? Do you just want to learn even more about security? Think about learning more about Cisco Certified Network Professional Security (CCNP Security). The Implementing Cisco Threat Control Solutions (SITCS, 300-207) course is part of the curriculum that the CCNP Security certification covers.

This course provides training on integration of Intrusion Prevention System, context-aware firewall components, as well as web and email security solutions for the Cloud. Equipping yourself with a CCNP Security certification will give you new and exciting professional opportunities. Launch your security career to reach new heights with the CCNP Security!

The best way to protect a network is to educate all of your users. Once they know how to identify red flags, they are more likely to recognize the attacks that are commonly used to steal data.

Start using our network security training to get a better grip on all things security.
