Course Overview:

Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower Next-
Generation IPS (SSFIPS) v4.0 is a 5-day course which
shows you how to deploy and use Cisco Firepower®
Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS).
This hands-on course gives you the knowledge and skills
to use the platform features and includes firewall
security concepts, platform architecture and key
features; in-depth event analysis including detection of
network-based malware and file type, NGIPS tuning and
configuration including application control, security
intelligence, firewall, and network-based malware and file
controls; Snort® rules language; file and malware
inspection, security intelligence, and network analysis
policy configuration designed to detect traffic patterns;
configuration and deployment of correlation policies to
take action based on events detected; troubleshooting;
system and user administration tasks, and more. This
course will help you:
• Implement Cisco Firepower Next-Generation IPS to
stop threats, address attacks, increase vulnerability
prevention against suspicious files, and analyze for
not-yet-identified threats
• Gain leading-edge skills for high-demand
responsibilities focused on security

This course helps you prepare to take the exam,
Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower (300-710
SNCF), which leads to CCNP Security and Cisco Certified
Specialist – Network Security Firepower certifications.
The 300-710 SNCF exam has a second preparation
course as well, Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower
Next Generation Firewall (SSNGFW). You can take these
courses in any order.
