Earlier this year, Symantec Corp. restructured its security-oriented certification program. Now, all three of its remaining credentials require candidates to earn third-party certifications and to take one or more Symantec exams as well to qualify. There are four Symantec security solution exams, one for each major product area: firewalls and integrated security appliances, security management, intrusion protection and virus protection and integrated client security.

 What’s interesting about this revamped program is its reliance on third-party credentials to cover security fundamentals, terminology and best practices up to a pretty senior level. I think it’s a great combination and a harbinger of things to come for vendor-specific infosec credentials, which need to rely on strong general security knowledge and skills, as well as product-specific knowledge and skills.
