After my CCNA, I have two options: A Security certification like Checkpoint or a Linux certification. Please guide me where should go by considering the latest demand.
If you do decide to go the security route, I'd recommend starting off with the CompTIA Security+ cert to cover the general background, before tackling a vendor-specific cert like CheckPoint, Cisco, or whatever.
Good luck in your future cert activities!
