In this advanced Cisco Security training, Keith Barker prepares learners to take three of the four required exams to earn the CCNP Security certifications: the 300-208 SISAS, 300-206 SENSS, 300-209 SIMOS.
In addition to that, this course covers the 300-207 SITCS exam, which — despite being retired — is still excellent preparation for the 300-210 SITCS exam, the fourth required exam for the CCNP Security certification.
Security is one of the most sought-after skills you can have in IT right now — and there are plenty of security certifications you could pursue. If you’re a network engineer with your CCNA Security, CCNP Security is a good continuation of your networking and security skills. With the right experience, security professionals who complete this CCNP Security training will prove they're ready to step into senior security engineer roles.
After completing this Security training, you'll know how to implement Cisco Edge network security solutions, secure access using 802.1X and Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE), and a variety of Virtual Private Network (VPN) solutions on the Cisco ASA firewall and Cisco IOS software platforms.
For anyone who leads a technology team that uses Cisco products, this Security training can be used for CCNP Security exam prep, on-boarding new security professionals, or as part of a team training plan.
