Implementing Automation for Cisco Security Solutions (SAUI) v1.0

Duration: 3 Days (24 Hours)

Implementing Automation for Cisco Security Solutions (SAUI) v1.0 Course Overview:

In the Implementing Automation for Cisco Security Solutions (SAUI) v1.0 course, you will gain the knowledge and skills required to design advanced automated security solutions for your network. Through a combination of comprehensive lessons and hands-on labs, you will master the utilization of modern programming concepts, RESTful Application Program Interfaces (APIs), data models, protocols, and various security technologies to enhance cybersecurity for your web services, network, and devices.

The course covers a range of platforms and technologies, including firewalls, web security, Domain Name System (DNS) security, cloud security, email security, and Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE). By working with these platforms, you will learn how to strengthen your security posture and mitigate potential threats effectively.

Specific platforms covered in the course include Cisco Firepower Management Center, Cisco Firepower Threat Defense, Cisco ISE, Cisco pxGrid, Cisco Stealthwatch Enterprise, Cisco Stealthwatch Cloud, Cisco Umbrella, Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP), Cisco Threat Grid, and Cisco Security Management Appliances.

Throughout the course, you will understand when and how to utilize APIs for each Cisco security solution, enabling you to drive network efficiency and reduce complexity in your security infrastructure.

By the end of the course, you will be equipped with the necessary skills to design and implement advanced automated security solutions, leveraging the power of APIs, data models, and modern programming concepts to enhance cybersecurity and protect your network and services.

This course prepares you for 300-735 Automating and Programming Cisco Security Solutions (SAUTO) certification exam. Introducing Automation for Cisco Solutions (CSAU) is required prior to enrolling in Implementing Automation for Cisco Security Solutions (SAUI) because it provides crucial foundational knowledge essential to success.
