You also become familiar with the latest platform features: file and malware inspection, security intelligence, domain awareness, and more.

The course begins by introducing the system architecture, the latest major features, and the role of policies in implementing the solution.

You learn how to deploy and manage Cisco Firepower Threat Defense devices and perform basic Cisco Firepower discovery.

You learn how to use and configure Threat Defense technology, including application control, security intelligence, NGFW, NGIPS, and network-based malware and file controls.

Also, you learn how to take advantage of powerful tools, so you can perform more efficient event analysis, including the detection of file types and network-based malware.

And you’ll learn how to properly tune systems for better performance and greater network intelligence.

The course concludes with system and user administration tasks and Threat Defense system troubleshooting.
