McAfee Launches Additional Certification Exams & Virtual Instructor Led Training Programs

SANTA CLARA, Calif., 6. September 2011 - McAfee today announced the global availability of two new certification exams in support of the McAfee Security Certification Program. These exams have been released under the McAfee Certified Product Specialist track which is designed to allow the users of McAfee technologies to demonstrate competency around the effective installation, configuration and administration of key McAfee products.

The two new exams focus on the McAfee Network Security Platform and McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention solution. Those who pass the exam and become certified demonstrate the highest levels of technical competency and productivity, helping to lower operating cost and improve levels of service and security. The McAfee Security Certification program is open to all McAfee product users, customers, and partners.

Along with the exam releases, McAfee is announcing the availability of a program logo. This logo can be used by certified individuals as a visual representation of having successfully achieved the McAfee Certified Product or Assessment Specialist benchmark on business cards, email signature lines, etc. The logo will be made available via the McAfee certification candidate system.
