Implementing Cisco Secure Access Solutions (SISAS)


This course is part of the curriculum path leading to the Cisco Certified Network Professional Security (CCNP Security) certification. Additionally, it is designed to prepare security engineers with the knowledge and hands-on experience for deploying the Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) and 802.1X secure network access. You will acquire the foundational knowledge and capabilities to implement and managed network access security by utilizing Cisco ISE appliance product solution.

You will also gain hands-on experience with configuring various advance Cisco security solutions for mitigating outside threats and securing devices connecting to the network. At the end of the course, you will be able to reduce the risk to your IT infrastructures and applications using the Cisco ISE appliance feature and provide operational support identity and network access control.
