Implementing Security Manager for Cisco Networks Equitrain

Course details

The Cisco Security Manager is part of the Cisco Security Management Suite, which delivers comprehensive policy administration and enforcement for the Cisco Self-Defending Network. Cisco Security Manager centrally provisions all aspects of device configurations and security policies for Cisco firewalls, virtual private networks (VPNs), and Cisco Intrusion Prevention System (IPS). It also supports advanced settings that are not strictly related to security, such as quality of service (QoS) routing and Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). The solution is effective for managing even small networks consisting of fewer than 10 devices, but also scales to efficiently manage large-scale networks composed of thousands of devices. Scalability is achieved through intelligent policy-based management techniques that can simplify administration.
