This course is designed for Network Security Engineers who implement and maintain Cisco IPS solutions as well as individuals looking to obtain the CCNP Security Career Certification.
This five-day course is designed to provide network security engineers with the knowledge and skills needed to deploy Cisco Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)-based security solutions. Successful delegates will be able to reduce the risk to the IT infrastructure and applications using Cisco IPS features, and provide detailed operations support for the Cisco IPS.
