    Hard to say. It all depends on your capability and interest. Software Engineer has been around for longer time. There are lots of demand for security analyst.

    If you look purely at salary then the Software Engineer is your best bet because of the breadth of opportunities available. Security technologies is a much more specialized field and thus more limited prospects.

    Personally I would avoid security because I find it a very tedious, analytic and an*l field. Most of the people in our organization don’t have much love for them.

    Software Engineering can much more creative and have many more opportunities.
