In this comprehensive two-day training course containing hands-on labs, demos, and presentations, you will learn to install, configure, operate, and maintain the S-Series web security appliances. You will focus on HTTP and HTTPS proxy services, L4 traffic monitoring, authentication and web access control, URL filtering, anti-malware filtering, troubleshooting S-Series configuration issues, and S-Series deployment. You will also see how the WSA is used in a SAAS scenario (Security-As-A-Service) and how Cisco WSA can inspect HTTPS traffic. Hands-on labs provide you with a safe environment to experiment with malware and attempt configurations that might not be appropriate for a production network. This is formally an IronPort email and web security gateway and management products, currently referred to as Cisco Email Security and Cisco Web Security.

This course includes 30 Cisco e-lab credits. Your e-Lab credits are good for 90 days after your course ends and can be used for additional practice on the course you just completed or to explore technologies from other courses in the Global Knowledge e-Lab portfolio. Learn more.
