Cisco Firepower Next-Generation IPS Training

In this self-paced course, Securing Cisco Networks with Sourcefire Intrusion Prevention System (SSFIPS) v3.0, you will learn about basic next-generation intrusion prevention system (NGIPS) and firewall security concepts. You will learn about the Cisco Firepower system, its powerful features, including:

  • In-depth event analysis
  • NGIPS tuning and configuration
  • Snort® rules language

You’ll also become familiar with the latest platform features: file and malware inspection, security intelligence, domain awareness, and more.

The course begins by introducing the system architecture, the latest major features, and the role of policies in implementing the solution. You learn how to manage deployed devices and perform basic Cisco Firepower discovery. You’ll be able to describe how to use and configure Cisco NGIPS technology, including application control, security intelligence, firewall, and network-based malware and file controls. You’ll learn how to take advantage of powerful tools so you can carry out more efficient event analysis, including the detection of file type and network-based malware. And you’ll learn how to properly tune systems for better performance and greater network intelligence. The course finishes with system and user administration tasks.
