Cisco ASA Next Gen Firewall with FirePOWER Services Technical Workshop v1.0 Global Knowledge Egypt
Price: TBA

Course details


Multifaceted, highly dynamic applications and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) workplaces have become the norm. And with them comes the challenge to balance productivity with security

Cisco has the industry’s first adaptive, threat-focused next-generation firewall (NGFW) designed for a new era of threat and advanced malware protection. Cisco ASAs with FirePOWER Services deliver an integrated threat defense across the entire attack continuum — before, during, and after an attack. It combines the proven security capabilities of the ASA Firewalls with industry-leading Sourcefire threat and advanced malware protection features in a single device. This extends the capabilities of the Cisco ASA 5500-X Series beyond what other NGFW solutions provide.

Cisco ASA Next-Generation Firewall FirePOWER Services (SFR) Module addresses these needs by integrating the next-generation intrusion prevention system (NGIPS), application visibility & control (AVC), reputation- and category-based URL filtering and advanced malware protection (AMP) capabilities from Sourcefire. This integrated approach with multilayer protection gives much greater visibility into what’s going on in your network. With full contextual awareness you will see all the resources.

Cisco FireSIGHT Management Center is the central management Center for all Sourcefire security solutions. The FireSIGHT Management Center lets you see and correlate extensive amounts of event data – applications, users, devices, operating systems, vulnerabilities, services, processes, files and threats – so you can get the complete picture of your network.

The FireSIGHT Management Center provides automated event impact assessment, policy tuning, policy management, and network and user behaviour analysis.

The results are end-to-end network intelligence and streamlined security operations. The time between detection and cure quickly shrinks in a streamlined operation.

This workshop is designed to help users understand the integration of the SourceFire Security Suite with the Cisco ASA, FIreSIGHT and CSM for a new adaptive, threat-focused NGFW solution. You should at the end of this workshop feel confident in demonstrating the capabilities of the Cisco ASA Next-Generation Firewall FirePOWER Services(SFR) Module to potential customers.
