Course Description Schedule Course Outline

Course Content

Fast Lane’s SSFAMP training course is a 3-day, instructor-led, lab-based, hands-on experience that guides students through the powerful features of Cisco AMP Endpoints and the modern cyber security landscape. After this combination of lecture materials and hands-on labs, you will be able to successfully deploy and manage an AMP for Endpoints deployment.

Day one revolves around cyber security and exposes students to the vast, sophisticated security threats facing businesses today. It will also introduce Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) technologies as a whole. Days two and three focuses on the Cisco AMP Endpoints – detailing product architecture, abilities and how to apply them to real-life security breach situations.

Who should attend

As malware becomes more dense and complicated, the ability to combat it becomes more critical than ever. Of the positions best suited for Fast Lane’s SSFAMP course, Cisco prefers professionals with major protocol experience, basic network traffic routing knowledge, understanding of common services, as well as general information security fundamentals.

That’s why technical professionals tasked with maintaining network security in any capacity are highly encouraged to enroll in SSFAMP training at Fast Lane. Specifically, security admins, security consultants, network admins, engineers, and other technical support and channel personnel are ideal candidates for this course.

Still unsure if SSFAMP is for you? Meet Charles. Charles is a security administrator for an IT company in Cary, NC, utilizing numerous Cisco Advanced Malware Protection technologies. Not long ago, he began to recognize an increase in the quantity and sophistication of malware attacks he was defending against. Faced with mounting risk, Charles knew he had to act fast.

To better understand Cisco EMP for Endpoints and best secure the networks under his management, Charles decided to enroll in Fast Lane’s SSFAMP course. After three days of lab-based training, Charles successfully completed his SSFAMP certification and was now prepared to build and manage Cisco AMP for Endpoints and best protect his network from always-evolving strands of malware affecting businesses today.
