Course Objectives

This course is focused on arming the Network Security Engineer (NSE) with the fundamentals of configuring network Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPSs), with a focus on implementing this on Cisco IPS devices. The NSE will benefit from receiving the fundamentals within the context of a hands-on immersion into doing IPS design and administration on real Cisco IPS devices.

Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • Evaluate products and deployment architectures for the Cisco IPS product line
  • Perform an initial implementation of a Cisco IPS sensor
  • Implement an initial security policy using a Cisco IPS sensor according to local policies and environmental requirements
  • Deploy customized policies to adapt Cisco IPS traffic analysis and response to the target environment
  • Implement a basic Cisco IPS data management and analysis solution Implement complex Cisco IPS policy virtualization, high availability, and high perfor-mance solutions according to policy and environmental requirements
  • Perform the initial setup of, and maintain specific Cisco IPS hardware

IPSs are critical in preventing intrusions, and Cisco’s IPS is a primary product in the IPS market.
