Cisco's Latest CCNP Security Updates

Cisco has given us a big makeover for one of their premier Professional Level Certifications - the Cisco Certified Network Professional Security (CCNP Security) Certification. The 2014 updates retire some devices and technologies from coverage, and replace these with some of the latest and greatest in Cisco's security portfolio. It does seem that in the area of security, Cisco makes the most sweeping changes, retiring products with no warning. The ever-changing network security landscape certainly helps to make this a reality. 

As we examine this updated certification, the first thing to consider is the prerequisite requirements. 

Prerequisites
The most common method of meeting the prerequisites is to simply possess the CCNA Security certification. The simplest path to CCNA Security is to possess the CCENT Certification and then pass 640-554 IINS. 

A less common method of meeting the prerequisites is to possess any valid CCIE Certification from Cisco Systems. This is actually how I can move right to this new CCNP Security as I possess the CCIE R&S cert. 

What about if you passed the older CCNA Security exams? As usual, Cisco is very fair about this. Candidates who have a valid CCNA Routing and Switching certification and have passed either Securing Cisco Network Devices exams 642-551 or 642-552 can act as a prerequisite valid through December 31, 2014.
