Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower Next-Generation IPS (SSFIPS v3.0) Training

Code: 2873 Category: Tag:

This course is a lab-intensive course which introduces you to the basic next-generation intrusion prevention system (NGIPS) and firewall security concepts, and the Cisco Firepower system components and features. The course then leads you through the powerful features of the Cisco Firepower system, in-depth event analysis, NGIPS tuning and configuration, Snort® rules language overview, and the latest platform features including File & Malware inspection, Security Intelligence, Domain Awareness, and more.

The course begins by introducing the system architecture, the latest key features, and the role of policies when implementing the solution. You also learn how to manage deployed devices and perform basic Cisco Firepower discovery before moving on to describe how to use and configure Cisco NGIPS technology, including application control, security intelligence, firewall, and network-based malware and file controls. You also learn to properly tune systems for better performance and greater network intelligence while taking advantage of powerful tools for more efficient event analysis, including file type and network-based malware detection. The course finishes with system and user administration tasks. This course combines lecture materials and hands-on labs throughout to make sure you are able to successfully deploy and manage the Cisco Firepower system.
