Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Context Aware Next-Generation Firewalls, or ASA (CX) NGFW provide context-aware security functionality on the Cisco ASA adaptive security appliance platform. Context-awareness implies knowledge and control that are based on application (what), location (where), user-device type (how), and user identity (who). In this course you will learn key Cisco ASA (CX) NGFW functions, management architecture, and protocols as well as the basic Cisco Prime Security Manager (PRSM) GUI functions and Cisco ASA (CX) NGFW CLI operations. In addition, you'll learn the caveats of the Cisco (CX) NGFW management interface, and the Cisco (CX) NGFW and Cisco PRSM licensing requirements, as well as how to how to configure Cisco ASA (CX) NGFW policy objects. This course is one of a series in the SkillSoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Implementing Cisco Threat Control Solutions (SITCS) 1.0 (300-207 SITCS) exam.
This path is designed to prepare security engineers with the knowledge covering advanced firewall architecture and configuration with the Cisco Next-Generation Firewall, utilizing access, and identity policies. It is also suitable for students interested in pursuing their Cisco Certified Network Professional Security (CCNP Security) certification.
