*SFWIPF replaces the SSNGFW and SSFIPS course*

The Fundamentals of Cisco Firewall Threat Defense and Intrusion Prevention (SFWIPF) training shows you how to implement and configure Cisco Secure Firewall Threat Defense for deployment as a next generation firewall at the internet edge. You’ll gain an understanding of Cisco Secure Firewall architecture and deployment, base configuration, packet processing and advanced options, and conducting Secure Firewall administration troubleshooting.

This training prepares you for the CCNP Security certification, which requires passing the 350-701 Implementing and Operating Cisco Security Core Technologies (SCOR) core exam and one concentration exam such as the 300-710 Securing Networks with Cisco Firepower (SNCF) concentration exam. This training also earns you 40 Continuing Education (CE) credits towards recertification.
