Certifications for Career Advancement

Hey all! Took a few years off from the site and certification testing to get a degree and focus on work. I am now at a point where I do not believe I can advance at my current role and am looking to better myself for my next opportunity. I currently work as a desktop support technician but would like to move elsewhere in the IT world.

I believe I want to focus on server support or security. Does anyone have suggestions for a starting point that might get my foot in the door with little experience in those fields? I am basically looking for an equivalent for the A+ that sends a message that I am serious about the field, even if I do not have expert level knowledge or experience.

This is fairly vague, so please let me know if I can provide more details.

Thanks in advance.
