Learn how to deploy and use the Cisco Firepower Threat Defense system. This 5-day instructor-led course introduces participants to the powerful features of Cisco Firepower Threat Defense, including VPN configuration, traffic control, NAT configuration, SSL decryption, advanced NGFW and NGIPS tuning and configuration, analysis and troubleshooting. 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 also helps learners prepare to take the Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower (300-710 SNCF) exam, which leads to CCNP Security and Cisco Certified Specialist – Network Security Firepower certifications. The 300-710 SNCF exam has a second preparation course as well, SSFIPS Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System v4.0. Note: these courses can be taken in any order.
