Which is the best certification suited for me?

I am new to networking in general. I have a fair idea of networking basics, like subnetting for example. My company has bought juniper networking hardware. They are srx240 gateway and sa2500 SSL-VPN solution. I am basically a RHCE certified engineer. Now I have to manage SRX240 and SA2500. Which is the best certification suited for me. Which books should I start learning to successfully manage these two devices. I was able to find admin guide for sa2500 through google search but not for srx240. If somebody could point me to srx240 admin guide, it would be nice.


Looking forward for you valuable suggestions

Re: Which is the best certification suited for me?

These two products are from different certification tracks.

For the SSL-VPN:
Watching the sales demo can help get the big picture if you haven't been using this already.

The general introduction to the concepts and configuration from Syngress press is "Secure Access SSL VPN Configuration Guide".  This is a great organized walk through of what is needed to use the SA.

Next stop is the tech support landing page for the mid-range SA-2000 series, which you have.  This organizes access to the getting started guide, manual, tech notes and all the related material for the series.

I also picked up the "Configuring Juniper Networks Secure Access" Course ware from the fulfillment site.  This is the book and labs from the two day introduction class for self study.  I'm working my way through this in the evenings a couple hours at a time.

For the SRX:
The Fast Track material under the Security category is your product line.  Go through this material in order.
