The network discovery policy on the Firepower Management Center controls how the system collects data on your organization's network assets and which network segments and ports are monitored. In this course, you'll learn about this policy and how to configure it. Next, you'll examine the authentication options that are possible thanks to identity policies. You'll learn about DNS-based security intelligence and how it allows you to allow or block traffic based on the domain name requested by a client using an Allow or Block list. Cisco provides domain name intelligence, so you'll learn how to customize this and even add your own domains. Finally, you'll explore why you might want to have your FTD engage in event correlation to enact some remediation for a very tricky and specific situation. This course can be used in preparation for the 300-710: Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower (SNCF) certification exam.
