    Search the forums here for "SCNP" to find the discussions that have been posted about it. Then search the popular job Web boards for job posting that mention the SCNP and SCNA certifications. These certifications are heavily marketed, but I see little IT industry recognition of them.

    thanks for your reply.
    I checked out the structure and it seems I need to take the SCNP exam first...anyways couldnt get much of blogs or comments on it and the job scenarios are also less..

    Can u advise which one should I appear for till I get a job....dont want to waste well put another certi under the belt.

    If you are already a CCNA then CCNP or CCSP would be your next step. Or you could start on the Microsoft cert path with the MCSA/MCSE. Your Network+ and Security+ certs will help with earning these Microsoft certs too. If you are interested in other general security certs, the SSCP would be the next step past Security+. You need verifiable information security work experience to earn the full CISSP certification.
