ASAE - ASA Essentials 3.0 (ASAE)

All SLI Scheduled Dates Are Guaranteed to Run!

ARP has combined the most important content from Cisco's Authorized FIREWALL v2.0 and VPN v2.0 courses and added additional information on the new features in v9.x software to hone in on the most crucial aspects of the ASA. In just one week, students will cover: Firewall Basics, Network Address Translation (NAT), Access Control Lists (ACLs), Object Groups, Stateful Inspection, Modular Policy Framework, PKI Integration, Site-to-site and Remote Access VPN (both IPsec and SSL), Active/Standby Failover, Server-based Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) using ACS 5.2 and Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE).
Students will complete their training with high availability failover coverage, including an exclusive demonstration of what happens to firewall connections and VPN sessions during a device failure.
