The Implementing Automation for Cisco Security Solutions (SAUI) course is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills required to implement automation solutions in Cisco security environments. Participants will learn how to leverage automation tools and technologies to streamline security operations, improve efficiency, and enhance the management of Cisco security solutions.
- Familiarity with Cisco security technologies and architectures.
- Understanding of networking concepts, including IP addressing, routing, and firewalling.
- Knowledge of programming fundamentals and scripting languages.
- Experience with RESTful APIs and web technologies.
- Familiarity with network management and monitoring tools is beneficial but not mandatory.
The course will utilize a combination of instructor-led lectures, hands-on labs, and interactive discussions. Participants will have access to virtual lab environments where they can practice implementing automation solutions using Cisco security platforms and tools. The instructor will provide guidance, demonstrations, and real-world examples to facilitate understanding and practical application of the course material.
