It was announced yesterday that Check Point is retiring the CCMA certification. Apparently there is a new certification in development in Israel called the CCSM. There will be an accompanying course for the CCSM, and it is supposedly undergoing “final beta review” this week. Anyone who currently holds the CCMA will be transitioned to the CCSM when their CCMA expires. Those who have started down the CCMA path in the past two years will be transitioned to the CCSM when it is publicly available. I have no links to this info (yet) but will provide updates when I hear more.
*Update – The CCSE will be a pre-requisite
