- Course Outline
In the first part of this course, we take a task-oriented approach to teaching the skills to configure, operate, and manage the Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance product family. Configurations are performed via ASDM. This course covers important new ASA and PIX Security Appliance 8.0 features giving students the knowledge and skills to protect network systems from intrusions and security threats. In the second half of this course, students will learn to describe, configure, verify, and manage the Cisco ASA Security Appliance product. In this lab-intensive course, students will learn to take the appropriate steps needed to configure the security appliance to identify, alert, and defend against attacks. CCNA or CCNA Security Certification strongly suggested as prerequisites. Students must also have experience in configuring Cisco IOS software, basic knowledge of the Windows operating system, and familiarity with networking and security terms and concepts. This course is for network professionals wanting to guarantee the security of their network.
Please note that although the course content is categorized as intermediate, the learning tempo/rate of delivery of the course is advanced. Therefore, we recommend that candidates have a solid theoretical foundation as well as considerable practical experience when considering boot camp enrollment.
