CCNA or RHCE?? Cisco certified network associate or Redhat certified engineer?

Hi, I am a BCA fresher and was thinking about getting certified in either of the following domains: CCNA from Cisco OR RHCE from Redhat. Now, am kind of confused which one should I start with. I want to start with a course which (after getting certified) can fetch me a good job with some remarkable salary package. So that I further fund my certifications and studies (so u see financial limitations here). I have to take certification exam so I am wondering which would be good to start with. I want to be a security professional years down the line. Just thought to mention it if it helps you in guiding me. Thanks a lot experts for your answer and time..!! Please suggest.!!
