CompTIA PenTest+ is a certification for intermediate skills level cybersecurity professionals who are tasked with hands-on penetration testing to identify, exploit, report, and manage vulnerabilities on a network.
Why is it different?
• CompTIA PenTest+ is the only exam taken at a Pearson VUE testing center with both hands-on, performance-based questions and multiple-choice, to ensure each candidate possesses the skills, knowledge, and ability to perform tasks on systems.
• CompTIA PenTest+ exam not only covers hands-on penetration testing and vulnerability assessment, but includes management skills used to plan, scope, and manage weaknesses, not just exploit them.
• CompTIA PenTest+ is unique because our certification requires a candidate to demonstrate the hands-on ability and knowledge to test devices in new environments such as the cloud and mobile, in addition to traditional desktops and servers.
