CCNP Security Online Training
This intermediate Cisco CCNP Security training covers the objectives in the 300-710 SNCF exam, which is one of six concentration exams you can take to earn the CCNP Security certification.
Cisco's 300-710 SNCF exam tests a specific skill set, but a very important one. The Cisco Firepower Management Center is a uniquely powerful suite of security products for a number of different platforms, and managing and administering them takes specialized knowledge -- knowledge tested by the 300-710 SNCF.
For a network administrator, knowing enough to pass the specialization exam takes work. Learning how to maintain complete and unified management of firewalls, intrusion prevention, advanced malware protection, URL filtering and application control on the Cisco ASA 5500-X Series Next-Generation Firewall isn't something you just "pick up" on the job.
Learn to master Cisco's advanced firewalls and specialize in their administration with this CCNP Security training.
For managers with Cisco products, this Cisco training can be used for 300-710 SNCF exam prep, onboarding new network administrators, individual or team training plans, or as a Cisco reference resource.

Who Should Take CCNP Security Training?
This CCNP Security training is considered professional-level Cisco training, which means it was designed for network administrators. This Cisco Firepower skills course is designed for network administrators with three to five years of experience with network security and defense.
New or aspiring network administrators. If you're a brand new network administrator, you should be aware that this training is highly specialized and specific. There's nothing wrong with starting your career with a highly specialized understanding of 5500-X series next-gen firewalls, but this training isn't for broad generalists. If that interests you, this CCNP Security training will get you ready for your 300-710 SNCF.
Experienced network administrators. If you've been working as a network administrator for several years, there are a few reasons to consider this training. The most obvious is if your organization uses 5500-X series firewalls and no one has ever really mastered them. Or if you're looking to eventually earn your CCNP, or are considering a new position with a different company or shop that is more focused on policy configurations for Cisco devices. Whatever your reason, this CCNP Security training provides the advanced understanding you need to master next generation firewalls and IPSs.
