The Duration : 5 Days


The Overview:


Course Content


The purpose of this course is to teach participants the basic next-generation intrusion prevention system (NGIPS) and firewall security concepts and also:


  • In-depth event analysis
  • NGIPS tuning and configuration
  • Snort® rules language
  • file and malware inspection, security intelligence, domain awareness


The course begins by introducing the system architecture, the latest major features, and the role of policies in implementing the solution. The participants will learn how to manage deployed devices and perform basic Cisco Firepower discovery by describing how to use and configure Cisco NGIPS technology, including application control, security intelligence, firewall, and network-based malware and file controls. You’ll learn how to take advantage of powerful tools so you can carry out more efficient event analysis, including the detection of file type and network-based malware. And you’ll learn how to properly tune systems for better performance and greater network intelligence. The course finishes with system and user administration tasks.
