CompTIA Security+ Count Hits the Quarter-Million Mark

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

In the context of reading about the results of a Security+ related contest from CompTIA this morning, I also learned that the organization has recently certified a quarter-million individuals for that certification. In a post to its IT Careers Blog entitled “CompTIA Security+ Contest Winners Announced,” Leslie Hague at CompTIA not only indicated that Jeremy Caudle of Lexington, North Carolina, got the nod as the person who earned Security+ number 250,000, she also reported that he won a free year of training from web-based and instructor-led online training company Knowlogy.


With the grant of Security+ number 250,000, the credential advances to the major leagues of IT certification counts.

Hitting the quarter-million mark for any cert count is a moderately big deal, because it identifies an IT certification as of sufficiently long standing and high enough popularity to notch up a fairly big number. That certainly puts Security+ in the same league as the MSCE, MSCA, CCNA, PMP, and CompTIA’s own A+ and Network+ credentials, right at the very top of the list of all currently available IT certifications.
