Check Point Cyber Security Administrator (CCSA) and Engineering Fast Track (CCSE) R80.10

Special Notices: Students will need to bring their own tablet or portable device to the class as a reader for the Ekit courseware. In addition students must be advised install Capsule docs before arriving to the class.

This 5 day accelerated course will cover both Check Point Cyber Security Administration R80.10 and Check Point Cyber Security Engineering R80.10 courses.

These courses will provide an understanding of the basic concepts and skills necessary to configure Check Point Security Gateway and Management Software Blades. During this course you will configure a Security Policy and learn about managing and monitoring a secure network, upgrading and configuring a Security Gateway and implementing a virtual private network. It will also cover how to effectively build, modify, deploy and troubleshoot Check Point Security systems. We will study firewall processes and take a close look at user and kernel processing and Stateful Inspection. Labs include configuring security gateways, implementing VPNs, and performing advanced troubleshooting tasks on the firewall.
