Implementing Advanced Cisco ASA Security (SASAA)

 

Course Content

Fast Lane’s SASAA training course is a 5-day classroom course led by our expert SASAA instructor. It is a hands-on course that dives into every aspect of Cisco’s ASA products. Graduates of this training will be able to implement the key features of ASA, including FirePOWER services v6.0, ASA Identity Firewall, ASA Cloud Web security, ASA Clustering and virtual ASA.

Who should attend

Due to a growing cyber-criminal underworld, network security is becoming a top priority for the modern business. And as the demand for strict security software increases, so too does the need for network engineers able to implement a variety of security software to scale. That’s why this class is ideal for network engineers, network managers, network designers, network administrators and any other IT personnel tasked with maintaining, implementing and/or monitoring a company’s network security.

Do you belong in SASAA?

To get a better understanding of whether or not you should enroll in Fast Lane’s SASAA training, meet Thomas. Thomas is a network manager for a large corporation in the Research Triangle Park whose network spans across a mix of physical and virtual devices. Knowing the always evolving security needs of his company, Thomas searched for a way to implement a more agile, scalable, collaborative network. He reached out to Fast Lane and eventually enrolled in our SASAA training course. After five days of expert training and lab-based experience, Thomas successfully completed his SASAA training and returned to his company far more valuable than when he enrolled at Fast Lane. Thomas was able to implement Cisco ASA software and evolve his company’s firewall into a more flexible and sturdy environment.
