BECSN Building Enhanced Cisco Security Networks

Network Training Course Description:
Studies have shown that over recent years there have been increases in the number of network attacks and the number of simplified tools available to carry out such attacks. Although the number of attacks has increased, the skill required to launch network attacks has decreased. For this reason, the need to secure corporate networks has grown exponentially. Building Enhanced Cisco Security Networks Version 2.0 focuses on securing access to the enterprise network and on securing the data that flows through it. Students who attend the course will configure Layer 2 network security; Layer 3 network security; IP Security (IPsec) VPNs for Cisco® IOS® Software routers; Cisco Secure PIX®; Cisco ASA 5500 Series Adaptive Security Appliances (ASAs); Cisco Catalyst® 6500 Series Firewall Services Modules (FWSMs); Cisco Network Admission Control (NAC); IPsec VPNs using Cisco firewalls and Cisco VPN concentrators; Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPNs on Cisco ASAs using the Cisco Adaptive Security Device Manager (ASDM); Cisco intrusion prevention system (IPS) network devices; and Cisco Security Monitoring, Analysis, and Response System (MARS).
