In this entry-level Check Point CCSA R80 training, Keith Barker prepares network administrators to take the 156-215.80 exam, which is the one exam required to earn the Check Point CCSA R80 certification.
Check Point may only control about 10 percent of security appliance market share, but that very rarity makes Check Point knowledge all the more valuable. Security professionals who are Check Point-certified are relatively scarce, and those who can defend against network threats, assess current security policies, and monitor network activities are highly valued.
By completing this 156-215.80 training, network administrators will be better prepared to advance into roles that lead to higher-level network administrator and security positions.
For anyone who manages a company’s Check Point or security training, this CCSA R80 training can be used for 156-215.80 exam prep, for on-boarding new network administrators, or as part of a team training plan.
