FIREPOWER200 - Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower Threat Defense

This course is part of a portfolio of security courses designed to help businesses support and maintain their Cisco Firepower Threat Defense systems.

GK# 5640

Course Overview


In this course, you will learn about next-generation intrusion prevention system (NGIPS) and next-generation firewall (NGFW) security concepts. 

This course begins with an introduction to the system architecture, the latest major features, and the role of policies in implementing the solution. You will learn how to deploy and manage Cisco Firepower Threat Defense devices and perform basic Cisco Firepower discovery. You will learn how to use and configure Threat Defense technology, including application control, security intelligence, NGFW, NGIPS, and network-based malware and file controls. Also, you will learn how to take advantage of powerful tools, so you can perform more efficient event analysis, including the detection of file types and network-based malware. And you’ll learn how to properly tune systems for better performance and greater network intelligence. This course concludes with system and user administration tasks and Threat Defense system troubleshooting.
