CompTIA PenTest+ is for cybersecurity professionals tasked with penetration testing and vulnerability management.
Public launch on August 21, 2018.
CompTIA PenTest+ joins CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst (CySA+) at the intermediate-skills level of the cybersecurity career pathway. Depending on a student’s course of study, PenTest+ and CySA+ can be taken in any order but typically follow the skills learned in Security+. While CySA+ focuses on defense through incident detection and response, PenTest+ focuses on offense through penetration testing and vulnerability assessment.
