"The Securing Hosts Using Cisco Security Agent exam 642-513 HIPS is one of the exams associated with the Cisco Certified Security Professional certification. Candidates can prepare for this exam by taking the HIPS v3.0 course. This exam tests a candidate's knowledge and ability to describe, configure, and verify the Cisco Security Agent product."
I was looking for a specialist exam. This one is part of the CCSP. You can certainly take the exam without a CCNA. I don't see that it would make you certified as anything. It would only mean you had passed the exam, though this a designation you certainly could place on your resume.
Paul is correct in that you 'can' take the HIPS exam without first passing your CCNA. He is also correct in saying that this wouldn't really make you certified in anything. As the HIPS exam is not currently tied to any of the specialist designations, this wouldn't gain you much unless for some reason you just need to be able to tell someone you passed the exam.
