SSFIPS - Securing Cisco Networks with Sourcefire FireSIGHT Intrusion Prevention System v3.0

Learn how to use and configure next-generation Sourcefire technology, including application control, firewall, as well as routing and switching capabilities.

GK# 5593

Course Overview

In this course, 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: 

  • 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. 

This course combines lecture materials and hands-on labs that will give you practice in deploying and managing the Cisco Firepower system.
