  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am working on Server 2008 Certification but cannot find an equal to MCSE Security. Does any one know what Security based certifications are available with Server 2008?

    Many thanks,

  • Since you are already MCTIP, I would not go anymore for MCSA 2003 Security. And it's retiring in a year so the effort is almost useless I think (my personal view).

    What also a very good and considerd a very hard security certification is CISSP:

    See here for more information about CISSP. I know some Microsoft employees are also CISSP certified so it might be something for you.

  • There is no security specialization anymore in Windows Server 2008, for the core security technology's they are integrated in the tracks of MCTIP:Server Administrator and MCTIP: Enterprise Administrator

    But If you want a certification which is about security I would go for:

    MCTS: Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2006, Configuration


    Certifications: MCSA 2003|MCSE 2003|MCTS(4*)| MCTIP:SA

  • Thanks shadowman123,

    Do you think that if going for that certification it will be worth completing 'MCSA 2003 Security' with this certification?

    I do see that this certification retires in March 2011 so I will have to get onto it, will be good to have a path to go with this.
