How to Implement Web and Email Security with Cisco WSA and Cisco ESA FAQs: Cost, Training, Value

What will you learn in this Cisco endpoint device management training?

This course is narrowly focused on a specific skill: managing and configuring two of Cisco's gateway products that keep your network safe. The Web Security Appliance (WSA) and the Email Security Appliance (ESA) are physical devices that this course teaches you to get your hands dirty with, optimizing their settings so your network runs fast and safe.

Who should take this Cisco ESA and WSA configuration course?

Cisco's Email Security Appliance and Web Security Appliance might not be top-of-the-line any more, but you should still learn how to use, manage and configure them. If you work on a network that's using an ESA or WSA, take this course and make sure you know how to use them to keep your network safe.

Is this training in using Cisco WSA and ESA for web and email security associated with any certifications?

No, this course assumes a basic level of familiarity with managing Cisco network security and is narrowly focused on how to configure and use the WSA and ESA appliances. It can be used as a part of a training plan for Cisco security certifications but it's not meant to be certification prep on its own.

What certification should you consider after taking this course in configuring Cisco's WSA and ESA?

The right certification depends on where you are in your career and where you want to go. The associate-level CCNA is a good certification to consider after this course if you're relatively early in your career. But if it's your job to do specialized security configurations for your network, maybe the CCNP Security is the right call.

Why should you take this Cisco endpoint device management training?

You should take this Cisco ESA and WSA security management course because finding thorough, custom training for the security appliances is rare. If your company still relies on a WSA or ESA, most training and support for them has been retired, so this course remains one of the only ways to master the technology.
