SFWIPA: Securing Data Center Networks and VPNs with Cisco Secure Firewall Threat Defense

The Securing Data Center Networks and VPNs with Cisco Secure Firewall Threat Defense training shows you how to deploy and configure Cisco Secure Firewall Threat Defense system and its features as a data center network firewall or as an Internet Edge firewall with Virtual Private Network (VPN) support. You will learn how to configure identity-based policies, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) decryption, remote-access VPN, and site-to-site VPN before moving on to advanced Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) configuration and event management, integrations with other systems, and advanced troubleshooting. You will also learn how to automate configuration and operations of Cisco Secure Firewall Threat Defense system using programmability and Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and how to migrate configuration from Cisco Secure Firewall Adaptive Security Appliances (ASA).

This training prepares you for the CCNP Security certification, which requires passing the 350-701 Implementing and Operating Cisco Security Core Technologies (SCOR) core exam and one concentration exam such as the 300-710 Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower (SNCF) concentration exam.
