About this Course

Based on our enhanced SASAC v1.0 and SASAA v1.2 courses, this exclusive, lab-based course, provides you with your own set of equipment and is designed to provide you with the most Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) 9.x and ASA CX-based lab experience possible in just five days.

A typical day will begin with an informal white board lecture by the instructor, covering topics associated with the day's labs. Afterwards, you will be free to work on the labs at your own pace and to experiment in the lab environment. Of course, the instructor will remain available to assist as needed.

ASA 9.x labs can be run in any order, any number of times. ASA-CX labs will be run consecutively. With the exception of two labs that require two pods to work together, no coordination with other students is necessary.
