How to Implement Cisco Endpoint Security including Cisco AMP for Endpoints FAQs: Cost, Training, Value

What is an endpoint, and what is Cisco Secure Endpoint AMP?

An endpoint is a device that connects to a network, such as computers, servers and mobile devices. Cisco Secure Endpoint AMP (Advanced Malware Protection) is a specially designed cybersecurity solution for endpoints running on Cisco networks. AMP uses machine learning, behavioral analysis and other techniques to develop network traffic baselines and detect deviations and spot malware, ransomware and other malicious activities. Fortifying endpoints in this way ensures overall network security.

How does Cisco AMP for Endpoints provide next generation protection?

The secret to Cisco AMP's next-generation protection lies in its advanced AI/ML techniques and threat intelligence. AMP's systems are powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning that continuously monitor endpoint activities and learn what constitutes normal behavior; they're then able to detect and block malware in real-time. The analysis AMP does goes beyond statistical analysis, instead its next-generation capabilities include file behavior analysis, anomaly identification and proactive defense mechanisms.

What are the best endpoint security strategies?

Different networks and network technology approach holistic network security differently, but the best endpoint security strategy is always going to be a multi-layered approach. Antivirus software kept updated maintains a level of security for end users and internet-facing devices. Endpoint detection and response (EDR) solutions provide real-time threat detection and response. Network segmentation helps to slow the advance of network threats. The impact user education has on endpoint security also shouldn't be overlooked.

Is this course on implementing Cisco endpoint security related to any certifications?

Yes, this course on implementing Cisco endpoint security with Cisco AMP can help you work toward your CCNP Security. This short, skills-based course isn't meant to prepare you for any certification exam in its entirety, but knowing how to configure Cisco endpoint security is valuable if you're considering the CCNP Security core exam (350-701 SCOR). You also don't need to be planning on earning a cert to benefit from this course.

Is learning to implement Cisco endpoint security enough to get a job?

Although this course on using tools like Cisco AMP to secure endpoints is valuable, it's probably not enough on its own to secure a job in cybersecurity. Jobs like cybersecurity analyst or cybersecurity administrator generally draw on a much broader understanding of network security, risk management and compliance standards. This course can help you toward an entry-level position or internship, and can lead to career-defining certs like the CCNP Security.
