This dynamic and hands-on intensive 5 day course combines the two latest courses on the ASA: Deploying Cisco ASA Firewall Features (FIREWALL) and Deploying Cisco ASA VPN Solutions (VPN). You will receive both Cisco authorized course kits, but only cover the most vital aspects of the Adaptive Security Appliance's firewall and VPN capabilities. This course is an awesome way to launch your expertise with ASAs, and is extremely useful in supporting planned implementations. You can also use this class as an excellent prep for both of the related Cisco exams as a part of achieving the coveted CCNP Security!

Course Content

In the first part of this course, we take a task-oriented approach to teaching the skills to configure, operate and manage the Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance product family. Configurations are performed via ASDM. This course covers important new ASA and PIX Security Appliance 8.0 features, giving you the knowledge and skills to protect network systems from intrusions and security threats. In the second half of this course, you will learn to describe, configure, verify and manage the Cisco ASA Security Appliance product. In this lab-intensive course, you will learn to take the appropriate steps needed to configure the security appliance to identify, alert and defend against attacks. CCNA or CCNA Security Certification are strongly suggested as prerequisites. You must also have experience in configuring Cisco IOS software, basic knowledge of the Windows operating system, and familiarity with networking and security terms and concepts.
