About the Certified USM Anywhere Security Engineer (CUASE)

The Certified USM Security Engineer (CUASE) certification validates skills in planning, designing, implementing, and operating USM Anywhere™. The certification is a value designation of knowledge and skills that demonstrates expertise among LevelBlue customers, partners, and employees.

CUASE is designed for:

  • Security engineers

  • Community members who use open source security tools and desire a recognized Unified Security Management industry credential
  • IT professionals who implement, operate, or support security systems
  • Security professionals working as LevelBlue resellers or partners

Preparing for the CUASE Exam

  1. Review the CUASE Exam Blueprint. The blueprint shows the specific objectives for the CUASE exam. Refer to the topics listed on the blueprint, and the relative weight given to each topic, as a guide to the knowledge and skills you will need.

  2. Take the USM Anywhere training classes. This step is optional. You are not required to take training classes in order to take the CUASE certification exam. However, we recommend that you take two classes: USM Anywhere: Deploy, Configure, Manage (ANYDC) and USM Anywhere: Security Analysis (ANYSA). Unless you have extensive experience with USM Anywhere, you will likely learn skills in the classes that are necessary on the job and are required for success on the exam. Each delegate who takes either the USM Anywhere: Deploy, Configure, Manage (ANYDC) training or the USM Anywhere: Security Analysis (ANYSA) training receives a voucher to take the Certified USM Security Engineer (CUASE) certification exam at no additional charge.
