This course is part of Skillsoft's Instructor Series, technical courses presented in spontaneous lecture-style by subject matter experts. This is 1 of 6 of the Securing Networks with ASA Advanced (SNAA) 1.0 series. This course focuses on the new features and syntax of Cisco Security Appliance Software v8.0. This course teaches the knowledge and skills needed to configure, maintain, and operate Cisco ASA 5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliances at an advanced level. This course further updates Securing Networks with PIX and ASA (SNPA) v5.0 and includes extensive VPN features of the ASA which replaces Cisco Secure Virtual Private Networks (CSVPN).

Target Audience

This is an ideal course for CCNA students looking for the CCSP certification or employees, customers and channel partners and resellers who want to extend their knowledge of network security. It is an excellent choice for the CCSP elective since it is a logical extension of the required SNAF.
