Many professionals are moving towards the online learning platform with the desire to learn security skills and enhance their career prospects in the cybersecurity industry because this field offers high demand jobs and provide an exciting and rewarding career. The confusion arises, because IT professionals are usually unsure of choosing the right field to start with in order to achieve a top-tier security certification. Security professionals have many options in defining their course of study with security certifications such as CySA+, CEH, and SSCP. Unfortunately, the answer is very critical to find. This article attempts to offer some guidance and defining factors regarding critical security certifications that can guide you to the path of success.

There are two main certifications you can choose to enhance your career prospects that are CySA+ and CEH. Traditionally, the CEH designation is thought of as the most captivating, and among the most demanded certifications, however, the CompTIA CySA+ is also considered by professionals as the best security certification for them.
CompTIA CySA+ Certification
The CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst validates the fundamental knowledge to configure and use threat detection tools, perform data analysis, and interpret the results to identify vulnerabilities, threats and risks to an organization. The CompTIA CySA+ certification differs from the contemporary ones in the market because it’s a mid-level certification that focuses on security analytics. Other certifications don’t go into as much detail with analytics. CySA+ Exam objectives:
Cyber Incident Response
Security Architecture and Tool Sets
EC-Council CEH Certification
The CEH certification signifies is a proves your fundamental knowledge to protect systems using an ethical hacking methodology and framework as your line of defense. The EC-Council CEH certification is an advanced security certification that reflects the latest developments in the domain, including new hacking techniques, exploits, and automated programs. The CEH exam objectives are as follows:
Denial of Service
Hacking Mobile Platforms
Hacking Web Applications
Hacking Wireless Networks

The difference between the two certifications is their level of difficulty and approach to security.
