Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower ThreatDefense NGFW

Duration: 5 Days (40 Hours)

Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower ThreatDefense NGFW Course Overview:

This course will show students how to use and configure Cisco Firepower Threat Defense technology, beginning
with initial device setup and configuration and including routing, high availability, Cisco ASA to Firepower Threat Defense migration, traffic control, and Network Address Translation (NAT).

The course will then explore how to implement advanced Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) and Next-Generation
Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS) features, including network intelligence, file type detection, network-based malware detection, and deep packet inspection.

Students will also learn how to configure site-to-site VPN, remote-access VPN, and SSL decryption before moving on to detailed analysis, system administration, and troubleshooting.

This course combines lecture materials and hands-on labs throughout to make sure that students are able to
successfully deploy and manage the Cisco Firepower system.

Target audience
The primary audience for this course is system installers, system integrators, system administrators, network administrators, and solutions designers who need to know how to deploy and manage a Cisco Firepower Threat Defense NGFW in their network environments. This course focuses on the features of Firepower Threat Defense
that relate to the network edge use case, where the Firepower system functions primarily as a VPN headend and security gateway. This class would be suitable for customers that are replacing Cisco ASA devices with Firepower Threat Defense.
