1. CompTIA PenTest+ is uniquely comprehensive.

Unlike many penetration testing certifications, CompTIA PenTest+ covers everything a penetration tester needs to know, from project planning to final reporting. The exam contains both multiple-choice and performance-based questions, validating hands-on cybersecurity skills.

2. CompTIA PenTest+ exam was created by working professionals who know the ropes.

CompTIA exams are created by cybersecurity practitioners from across the globe. These experts have many years of hands-on work experience that makes them ideal to contribute to exam material. CompTIA SMEs come from a variety of professional backgrounds and apply the certification concepts daily.

3. CompTIA PenTest+ assesses an important cybersecurity strategy.

In addition to safe practices, cybersecurity pros must understand attack strategy. CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) tests defensive skills, while CompTIA PenTest+ encourages IT pros to think offensively. The best security experts use both perspectives to defend against vulnerabilities. Thinking in the mindset of a penetration tester and a hacker helps companies uncover blind spots.

4. We need more penetration testers.

The SMEs agreed that companies do not have enough skilled professionals to keep up with increasing project demand. Cyberseek.org reports 10,929 open jobs for penetration and vulnerability testers in the United States, and CompTIA PenTest+ can help IT pros move up in their career and attain the skills that employers need.

5. CompTIA PenTest+ forms stronger teams

Cybersecurity is a pressing issue for many industries, but few teams have the skills necessary to defend IT systems. According to CompTIA’s Assessing the IT Skills Gap report, 96 percent of IT and business executives agree that too many workers lack advanced skills, including problem-solving, analysis and logical thinking.

CompTIA PenTest+ is for cybersecurity professionals tasked with penetration testing and vulnerability management.  The jobs roles of most CompTIA PenTest+ credential holders are  Penetration Tester, Vulnerability Testers, Security Analyst, Vulnerability Assessment Analyst, Network Security Operations, and Application Security Vulnerability.
