This intermediate-level Cisco VPN training prepares learners to configure, maintain and troubleshoot Cisco VPNs, allowing you to extend a corporate network through encrypted connections over the Internet.
The technology that makes Virtual Private Networks possible has been around since 1996, but it's only been in the last few years that VPNs have really come into their own. The reasons for that are pretty obvious: there aren't many technologies that can boast that they provide security, enhance productivity, and reduce costs — while increasing flexibility. And VPNs do.
All around the globe, the number of people who work remotely has skyrocketed, and the need for security and flexibility has increased at an even faster rate. Network administrators who don't know VPN configuration and maintenance are going to find themselves far behind their peers. With this Cisco Virtual Private Networks training, you'll be maintaining site-to-site IPsec VPNs and remote-access VPNs in no time.
After completing this Cisco Virtual Private Networks training, you'll know how to configure, maintain and troubleshoot Cisco VPNs, allowing you to extend a corporate network through encrypted connections over the Internet.
For anyone with network administrators on their team, this Cisco training can be used to onboard new network administrators, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Cisco reference resource.
