Course Description

Implementing an Integrated Threat Defense Solution (SECUR201)

The Implementing an Integrated Threat Defense Solution (SECUR201) version 1.0 Cisco® Training on Demand course introduces you to Cisco’s Integrated Threat Defense solution with a focus on product integration. The skills you learn include integration of solution components with existing network services, integration of solution components with the pxGrid (Platform Exchange Grid) framework, integration of network and endpoint-based malware protection, and observation of security data flow after the introduction of malware. The course also teaches you how to analyze the current cybersecurity landscape and includes details about why networks today require an integrated threat defense architecture.

You learn how to integrate and verify proper operation of the key Cisco integrated threat defense products, including Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE), Cisco Stealthwatch®, Cisco Firepower® Next Generation Firewall (NGFW), and Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints. Verification includes the introduction of malware into the network to ensure proper identification, analysis, and quarantine.
