Firewalls act as the first line of defence against malware, unauthorised access, and a whole host of varying cyber threats. Therefore, managing your firewall effectively is one of the most important tasks when it comes to protecting your network. Cisco Firepower is a comprehensive security solution, but it is most effective when managed by someone with a good knowledge of how the platform works. That’s why Firepower Training is needed.

Whether you are an IT professional newly responsible for Firepower, or a security specialist looking to add another string to your bow, our Cisco Firepower training will get you exactly where you need to be. This learning experience blends theory and practical application resulting in thorough platform knowledge and a new confidence in firewall configuration and management.

  • Implement high availability (HA) mechanisms for enhanced system reliability.
  • Enforce security measures by blacklisting specific IP addresses and URLs.
  • Enhance access control policies by integrating security intelligence (SI) features.
  • Filter websites based on URL categories to control access and content.
  • Implement discovery policies for improved network visibility.

The Benefits of Firepower Training

Live Teaching

Some training courses available online consist of a series of videos you watch. This is not what we are offering. Our course is taught by a live expert who will be speaking to you directly. This makes the process much more enjoyable and valuable. This also means you will be able to ask questions whenever you want so you fully understand every aspect.


Our Firepower training can be one-to-one or can be a group session with other people from your organisation. Whatever option suits you, we can accommodate you. This training is also available remotely (over video meetings) or in person (UK only).

Become Independently Capable

After our Firepower Training, you will be completely capable of configuring and managing your firewall. Anything you need to adjust or change can be done yourself. There won’t be any need to involve a consultant or third party to help you make the required changes that frequently crop up. This will inevitably save time and money in the long run.

Beneficial for Certifications

If you are planning on getting a Cisco Certification, this training will be greatly beneficial. Knowing Firepower inside-out will be a huge help when it comes to exams.
