Is the CCNA Security certification the right path for your career? With average salaries ranging from $45,000 to $95,000 it just might be. And with the CCNA Security certification you’ll be ready for specialized jobs such as network security specialist, security administrator, and security support engineer.
More than any other area, security and risk management skills are some of the most highly sought after skills across the network, and demand is continuing to grow. Within five years, dedicated security roles are expected to exist in 80 percent of the companies studied versus today’s dedicated security role, which exists in only 46 percent of the companies surveyed.
Through the CCNA Security training, you will gain an overview of security challenges and solutions, and be able to install, monitor, and troubleshoot Cisco security solutions to secure a small branch office network. Cisco IOS security features on Cisco routers and switches are deployed using both graphical user interface tools (GUIs such as the Cisco Security Device Manager or SDM) and command line interfaces (CLIs). You will also understand the necessity of a comprehensive security policy and how it affects the posture of the network.
Your potential salary is another important factor. Industry surveys show that IT specialists receive higher compensation. Once certification is achieved, CCNA Security certification holders can make anywhere from $45,000 to $95,000. Salaries will vary based on experience, location and position, but the average income for CCNA Security personnel is $82,000.
All of the CCNA concentrations help you to distinguish yourself in the highly competitive world of IT networking. CCNA Security takes full advantage of your current CCNA certification as a foundation, while specifically preparing you for new career opportunities in network security.
The prerequisite for the CCNA Security certification is to have passed the CCENT (ICBD1 100-105), CCNA R&S or CCIE exam. If you do not have any of those exams passed, don’t worry as this lab kit will also help you pass the CCENT or CCNA R&S exam too.
Simulators and emulators provide nothing like a real “hands-on” experience and this lab kit includes what you need to learn and pass the CCNA Security (210-260) exam.
The 210-260 test covers topics including knowledge of secure network infrastructure, understanding core security concepts, managing secure access, VPN encryption, firewalls, intrusion prevention, web and email content security, and endpoint security. This exam validates skills for installation, troubleshooting, and monitoring of a secure network to maintain integrity, confidentiality, and availability of data and devices.
To start, a Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance ASA-5505 firewall integrates multiple full-featured, high-performance security services, including application-aware firewall, SSL and IPsec VPN, IPS with Global Correlation and guaranteed coverage, antivirus, antispam, antiphishing, and web filtering services. This unit has the BASE license features and it’s own power supply.
The CCNA Security Standard Lab Kit includes one 2811 router (with a Enhanced Network Module slot), 4 HWIC/WIC/VWIC/VIC slots, USB, console and AUX ports, 256MB DRAM and 128MB Flash RAM. Two 2801 routers with 2 Fast Ethernet ports, USB, console and AUX ports, 2 HWIC/WIC/VWIC/VIC 2 WIC/VWIC/VIC slots with various configurations, and 256 megabytes DRAM & 64 megabytes of flash RAM. All routers have IOS version 15.1 loaded on them.
A Cisco 3560PS-Sv2 multi-layer switch is included in the Standard Kit too. The 3560PS-Sv2 is a multi-layer switch including the ability to route data just like a router with the Enhanced Image load; which is our default load. You also get two Cisco 2960TC-L switches running the LanBase image delivering intelligent services such as advanced QoS, rate limiting, security filters, and multicast management to the network edge and basic routing functions.
Lots of accessories are also included. A pair of WIC-1T serial cards and four HWIC-1DSU-T1 serial cards. This allows you to gain knowledge on both types of serial interfaces. Plus plenty of cables to wire up all those ports in your labs.
The CCNA Security Standard Lab Kit includes all the hardware listed and the full CCNA Security online video course presented by CCIE Chris Bryant. This course has lots of “real-world and hands-on” labs for you to learn from. Your copy is fully licensed by TBA and comes with their email support in addition to the free support we provide.
We provide you with UNLIMITED FREE technical support for each certification lab you purchase. We’re just an e-mail or phone call away ready to help you.

To configure the routers and switches, you need a computer with a DB9 serial port to use with the console cable. However, most of today’s computers do not have this port. You can solve this problem by purchasing a USB to serial adapter like the one we offer below. Please note that when resetting a password on some Cisco devices, you need to press CTRL-BREAK while the unit is first powered on. Many of the “cheap” USB to serial adapters do not pass this code, ours does!
At the bottom of this page you will find a link to our USB to serial adapter as well as many other great accessories.
