Advice on security certifications (CPTS yes or no)



Hi list,

stumbling around in various certification scenarios I'm trying to
achieve the most prestigous one aside from CISSP (which is certainly an
option for the not so near future).

I'm MCSA and i'm extending the cert to MCSA + security, but beside that
I was considering a "real" security cert like CPTS.

Are there any certifications that are better (=more valuable) than CPTS?
I'm especially interested in offensive security.

I hope you can tell me the virtues and downsides of CPTS-like certs.
TIA.

Cheers,
Markus
