Network security today is more important than ever. This course teaches you how to automate common security tasks in Cisco ASA, FTD, and FMC products in the context of enterprise Internet edge security design.
What you'll learn :
While conceptually a firewall security policy is simple, managing it in a production environment has historically been a challenge due to its scale, efficiency, and business alignment.
In this course, Automating Cisco ASA and Firepower Policy Using APIs, you leverage Ansible to configure Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) policies through infrastructure as code.
Next, you will learn how to reconfigure existing ASA policies in a next-generation security platform that interacts with the Cisco Firepower Threat Defense (FTD) REST API to incorporate firewall and intrusion prevention system (IPS) capabilities.
Finally, you will learn how to manage distributed FTD deployments using the Firepower Management Center (FMC) REST API, a centralized “single pane of glass” for the Firepower product ecosystem. Upon completion of this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of the secure programming capabilities required to confidently build, design, and operate professional-looking automation solutions.
