Network security threats have the potential to significantly impede productivity, disrupt business and operations, and result in loss of information, which can lead to financial losses and noncompliance. Hackers continue to develop new techniques to gain access to information for their own financial gain, and these techniques are harder than ever to detect. Businesses need comprehensive solutions that are highly manageable and operational to proactively address these threats.
One of these solutions is the zone-based policy firewall which changes the original implementation of Cisco IOS Classic Firewall stateful inspection from the older interface-based model to a more flexible, more easily understood zone-based configuration model. This course covers the features of Cisco IOS zone-based policy firewalls and how to use Cisco Configuration Professional to configure them.
Another solution is the Cisco ASA Adaptive Security Appliance which implements a rich set of security technologies that can be effectively implemented as a perimeter firewall using several deployment modes. This course introduces Cisco ASA Security Appliance functionality, features, and underlying technologies. Finally, the course demonstrates how to configure the Cisco ASA 5505 Adaptive Security Appliance for basic connectivity using Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM).
