Instructor: Cristian Matei
Join our expert instructor, Cristian Matei, with real-world extensive experience for comprehensive CCNP Security Certification Video Series. The current CCNP Security blueprint is divided into four different exams which need to be passed to get CCNP Security certified. There is a huge gap of Security professionals on the market, so Cisco’s current CCNP Security blueprint was built to train engineers on emerging technologies and make them ready for challenging real-life environments. This course will be focusing on the SIMOS exam which assesses knowledge on the variety of Virtual Private Network (VPN) solutions that Cisco has available on the Cisco ASA firewall and Cisco IOS software platforms, such as remote access SSL VPN and site-to-site VPN (DMVPN, FlexVPN). This course will help candidates to get a better and deeper understanding of VPN architecture and deployment options, which will tremendously help them both for the certification exam and also for real-life deployments. As opposed to Bootcamp courses, being a certification video series, class is a mix of slides, visual explanations of how technologies work and the reasoning behind it, followed by configuration examples to enforce the knowledge. Slides should be used as a reference for the exam, while the examples as a reference for real-life deployments. Lab topologies will be designed, explaining the objective for each design, and then built from scratch by the instructor, nothing being pre-scripted, pre-tested or pre-recorded . During the process, the instructor will intentionally demonstrate the effects of misconfigurations and failures, randomly making learners think how to approach a specific problem, never seen before. Additionally, a focus will also be on building a proper study and learning methodology, which has nothing to do with command or configuration templates memorization.
