101 Labs – CompTIA Security+

CompTIA Security+ labs are a vital part of your study program if you want to pass the exam. Much of the syllabus expects you to know how to install, configure and troubleshoot firewalls, packet sniffers, Linux, hacking tools and more.

CompTIA certifications are ideal for beginners who want to pass a vendor-neutral exam. They are required if you want to work in any government role, including for companies that subcontract on government work.

Updated for the latest exam syllabus:

  • SY0-601 – CompTIA Security+

Security+ certification requires you passing the tough exam questions, many are based on real-world security problems and devices. Getting hands-on experience is vital if you want to pass your Security+ exam first time (around 50% fail).

101 Labs – CompTIA Security+ covers every aspect of the exam including configuring firewalls, Linux, scripting, IP Scanners, packet sniffers, penetration testing, credential harvesting and more. We take you by the hand and guide you through the Security+ exam syllabus topics. There are more than $400 worth of practice exams included to guarantee your success come exam day.

This is 100% hands-on training, if you need to learn the theory please check out our Security+ course on

Security+ certification is compliant with ISO 17024 standards and approved by the US DoD to meet directive 8140/8570.01-M requirements.

The CompTIA Security+ is the perfect starting block for a range of careers including cyber security, ethical hacker, security consultant and many others. There is currently a massive shortfall in certified security engineers with most Cyber Security departments having to run 24/7.

This course shows you how to configure multiple security protocols and devices including firewalls, routers, wireless controllers. You use free-trial software, virtual machines and free-to-download software (such as Cisco Packet Tracer) to configure all the labs. By the end of the course you will have configured more security protocols and services than most security engineers do in five years on the job.

Follow along every step of the way as our expert instructor shares tips and secrets you can use not only to pass the exam but to succeed in the real world of internetworking. We only ever use industry experts to create your labs and never IT Trainers. Your course instructor configures, supports and troubleshoots the security infrastructure for a large corporation. He’s both Security+ and SSCP certified.
