SENSS 1.0: Secure Design Principles

Anyone wishing to obtain the Implementing Cisco Edge Network Security Solutions (SENSS) v1.0 certification; one of four designed for the CCNP Security track from Cisco. Knowledge of Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification is required and knowledge of Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Security certification and Knowledge of Microsoft Windows Operating System are helpful.


Expected Duration
90 minutes

This course is intended to assist network architects and security practitioners with the appropriate placement of services into Network Security Zones. The Cisco modular network architecture best practices, designs, and configurations are introduced, and the necessary information to help network and security engineers succeed in designing, implementing, and operating secure network infrastructures based on Cisco products and technologies are covered. The course also describes the Cisco SecureX architecture and Cisco TrustSec, which are context-aware security solutions. Since the network infrastructure is one of the foundation elements of enterprise IT infrastructures and is a critical business asset of telecommunications service providers, this course concludes by providing an overview of network infrastructure protection controls on Cisco IOS routers, and switches, and describes some of its features.
