  • Configuring and implementing security on Cisco network perimeter edge devices such as a Cisco switch, Cisco router, and Cisco ASA firewall.
  • Various Virtual Private Network (VPN) systems that Cisco has available on the Cisco ASA firewall and Cisco IOS software platforms.
  • The components and architecture of secure access, by utilising 802.1X and Cisco TrustSec.
