In this intermediate Juniper skills training, Bart Castle prepares learners to keep their virtualized private or public clouds secure with software firewalls and vSRX.
Juniper makes next-generation firewalls that can be deployed on EC2 instances. EC2-based firewall deployments are a smart investment that can maximize the security of your organization’s tools and investments. You just need to know how to set it up. After watching this Juniper vSRX training, you'll know how to support an EC2-based software firewall deployment with public and private networks. Bart will also go over some AWS security basics like routing tables, traffic filtering, security groups, and network address translation (NAT).
For managers with Juniper products, this Juniper training can be used to onboard new network engineers, as a Juniper reference resource, or curated into individual or team training plans.
Juniper vSRX Firewalls on AWS: What You Need to Know

Who Should Take Juniper vSRX Firewalls on AWS Training?
This Juniper vSRX Firewalls on AWS training is considered engineer-level Juniper training, which means it was designed for network engineers. This vSRX firewalls skills course is designed for network engineers with three to five years of experience with network infrastructure.
New or aspiring network engineers. For new network engineers, the sheer amount of information there is to learn about cloud computing and cloud data management can be intimidating. This training isn’t necessarily meant for beginners, but there’s nothing stopping a new or relatively new network engineer from taking it. The worst case scenario would be that you see some of the holes of your knowledge about software firewalls and deploying on AWS, then return to the training when you’re more experienced with them. But no matter your experience, this training will teach you the importance of locking down your private or public cloud networks with firewalls and how to do exactly that.
Experienced network engineers. Even experienced network engineers who haven’t paid much attention to the industry know that data centers and cloud computing are the new normal. Protecting data and navigating firewalls around the cloud is rapidly becoming a foundational skill and differentiator for advanced network engineers. This training in deploying Juniper vSRX firewalls on AWS will prepare you for keeping your public, private or hybrid cloud networks safe and secure - regardless of scale or traffic.
