Securing Cisco Digital Network Architecture (DNA) Course Overview

Securing Cisco Digital Network Architecture (DNA) Course Overview

The Securing Cisco Digital Network Architecture (DNA) course offers comprehensive training on the design, implementation, and management of a secure network infrastructure using Cisco's DNA solutions. This course is tailored for network engineers, architects, and systems administrators who are looking to enhance their skillset in securing network systems utilizing the software-defined networking (SDN) approach.

Learners will delve into the Software Defined Access (SD-Access), which is a cornerstone of Cisco's DNA, providing a transformational shift from traditional network design to a more intelligent, intent-based network. By exploring the various modules, participants will gain a deep understanding of the DNA Centre, which acts as the central nervous system of the network, the ISE (Identity Services Engine) for policy management, and StealthWatch for advanced threat detection and analytics.

The course not only covers theoretical concepts but also includes hands-on labs that allow learners to apply their knowledge in a practical environment, ensuring they are well-versed in SD-Access deployment and Cisco TrustSec for network segmentation. With this training, participants will be equipped to design, deploy, and manage secure networks that meet modern digital demands, ensuring robust network security and compliance.

This is a Rare Course and it can be take up to 3 weeks to arrange the training.
