Cisco SITCS 1.0: Configuring Cisco Web Security Appliance
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
Cisco Web Security Appliance (WSA) enables you to control user access based on the web server category of a particular HTTP or HTTPS request. Using access policy groups, you can create access policies that control access to websites containing objectionable or questionable content. The sites that are blocked, allowed, or decrypted depend on the categories that you select when you set up URL category filtering within each policy group. In this course, you will learn acceptable use controls provided by the Cisco WSA and the anti-malware feature and its implementation on the Cisco WSA. You will also learn how to configure decryption policies on Cisco Web Security Appliance and the data security controls available on the Cisco WSA. 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.
