    Nice, I have trouble getting employers to recognize the McAfee certs for what they are. No one seems to know about them. I like to see them.

    We are using McAfee stuff at my work place (ePO, NSP, ATD, DLP) so they are happy to pay for training and certs. I could not miss this ;)

    There is no McAfee Cert program now. Intel own McAfee and program is called now: Intel Security Certified Product Specialist
    One of the exam is McAfee Network Security Platform (NSP)
