With the CCIE SCv5 blueprint now being live, we’re in the process of updating our Security product line in order to meet the new exam requirements. First of all, the following products will be released:
- Advanced Technologies Class
Advanced Technologies Class
The Advanced Technologies Class will run live online, starting 1st of May. This course series is now available for preorder here, and the full schedule is shown on the product page. The live course is also open to any All Access Pass subscriber. Given the current blueprint, which includes pretty much all Cisco Security products, most probably this will be the biggest video series we have ever released so far across all CCIE tracks; expect more than 150 hours of CCIE level training. First and most important, we’re going to deep dive into all core technologies:
- ASA Firewall
- IOS Firewall
- FirePOWER Threat Defense
- IPsec VPN’s (IKEv1 and IKEv2)
- SSL VPN’s
At the same time we’ll cover all the remaining topics (small but many), including technologies which will be tested mainly in the written exam (like CWS, SMA or Lancope). Oh….of course we’ll also cover in detail interesting topics like APIC-EM.
For the Evolving Technologies section, which is tested only in the written exam but it’s common across all CCIE tracks, we’ll be releasing a common and separate video series which will be attached to all ATC’s. We’ll be announcing a timeline soon for it.
The CCIE Security v5 Advanced Technologies Class is now available to preorder here: link. Preordering allows you to participate in the live classes as we’re recording them, and also allows you to download them shortly after they’re recorded.
So, see you in class :)
There will be a single unified workbook, containing:
- Technology Labs (aimed to learn technologies)
- Troubleshooting Labs (aimed to simulate the troubleshooting section of the lab exam)
- Diagnostic Labs (aimed to simulate the diagnostic section of the lab exam)
- Configuration Labs (aimed to simulate the configuration section of the lab exam)
- Mock Labs (aimed to simulate the entire lab exam)
A timeline for the workbook will be announced soon, here on our blog.
By the end of this month, we’ll have the Security racks upgraded to meet the new blueprint requirements. Expect an upcoming blog post with details on the rack build and rentals.
