Security is always an interesting and exciting field in the real world. Everyone seems to want more and more protection from hackers and other security threats, and firewalls help provide a small piece of the massive security puzzle required to protect a network.
Networking engineers are always taxed with the normal duties of maintaining a network solution for a company. The firewall configuration can be a tricky item to set up, configure, and maintain. Many companies might look outside to find a certified solution when installing a firewall system. Having a system set up by a specialist gives a company the assurance that everything is being done to help protect its network. Becoming certified on such a device and even becoming a specialist will increase your knowledge in security and your worth to a company and provide a better solution when you need to set up a firewall system.
