SSFIPS - Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower Next-Generation IPS


The Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower Next-Generation IPS (SSFIPS) v4.0 course shows you how to deploy and use Cisco Firepower Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS).

This hands-on course gives you the knowledge and skills to use the platform features:
• Firewall security concepts, platform architecture and key features
• In-depth event analysis including detection of network-based malware and file type, NGIPS tuning and configuration including application control, security intelligence, firewall, and network-based malware and file controls;
• Snort rules language; file and malware inspection, security intelligence, and network analysis policy configuration designed to detect traffic patterns;
• Configuration and deployment of correlation policies to take action based on events detected; troubleshooting; system and user administration tasks, and more.

This course helps you prepare to take the exam, Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower (300-710 SNCF), which leads to CCNP Security and Cisco Certified Specialist – Network Security Firepower certifications.

The 300-710 SNCF exam has a second preparation course as well, Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower Next Generation Firewall (SSNGFW). You can take these courses in any order.
