This intermediate Cisco CCNP Security training covers the objectives in the 300-710 SNCF exam, which is the core exam for the CCNP Security certification.
Cisco's 300-710 SNCF exam tests a specific skill set, but a very important one. The Cisco Firepower Management Center is a uniquely powerful suite of security products for a number of different platforms, and managing and administering them takes specialized knowledge -- knowledge tested by the 300-710 SNCF.
For a network administrator, knowing enough to pass the specialization exam takes work. Learning how to maintain complete and unified management of firewalls, intrusion prevention, advanced malware protection, URL filtering and application control on the Cisco ASA 5500-X Series Next-Generation Firewall isn't something you just "pick up" on the job.
Learn to master Cisco's advanced firewalls and specialize in their administration with this CCNP Security training.
For managers with Cisco products, this Cisco training can be used for 300-710 SNCF exam prep, onboarding new network administrators, individual or team training plans, or as a Cisco reference resource.
