Houston, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/09/2014 -- Simplilearn Americas LLC, a top professional certification readiness specialist, announced the availability of the company's new CompTIA Security+ SY0-401 exam preparation course. The CompTIA Security+ certificate is one of the information technology industry's most widely recognized credentials for those tasked with ensuring the security of computer systems and networks, databases, and other digital assets. Simplilearn's new comptia sy0-401 course will help students prepare for the new, updated, version of the certification exam that will be administered starting January 1, 2015.
"The IT industry is growing at an incredible pace around the world," Simplilearn representative Krishna Kumar said, "and the security field is one of the hottest of all within that sphere. Our new CompTIA Security+ SY0-401 preparation course is going to make a big difference for those setting their sights on this valuable, in-demand certificate."
Along with the health care industry, information technology has been one of the brightest spots in the American economy in recent years. More than six million workers are now employed in that industry in the United States, with an impressive 119,000 jobs having been added in the first half of 2014 alone. In addition to enjoying a wealth of job opportunities, IT specialists also command healthy salaries, with many roles coming in well above national averages. These facts have made Simplilearn's IT courses some of the company's most popular, with courses aimed at preparing students for the CompTIA Network+, Strata, and Server+ and other certificates regularly drawing especially high levels of interest.
As concerns about computer security have become ever more pointed, particularly in the wake of high-profile breaches like those that affected retailers Target and Home Depot this year, IT workers who specialize in locking down computer systems and networks have become among the most sought-after of all. CompTIA's security + certification is the industry's most widely recognized and respected way for job candidates to establish their IT security skills and is increasingly demanded by employers when considering job applications in the field.
In order to ensure that the certification represents the state of the art with regard to security practices and knowledge, CompTIA updates the Security+ exam every three years. Starting January 1, 2015, a new version of the exam, the SY0-401 edition, will be administered to those who seek the certification.
Simplilearn's new sy0-401 certification course will help students prepare for the upcoming version of the exam.
