Cisco completed the acquisition of Sourcefire, a leader in intelligent cyber security solutions. Following this acquisition, Cisco has added 4 new courses to the Cisco Learning Services (CLS) portfolio and expanded the security courses offer. Cisco now provides one of the industry's most comprehensive advanced threat protection portfolios, as well as a broad set of enforcement and remediation options that are integrated, pervasive, continuous and open.

The following four courses are now a part of the Cisco Learning Services Portfolio and NIL offers all of them:

  • Securing Cisco Networks with Open Source Snort (SSFSNORT)
    Learn to build and manage a Snort system using open source tools, plug-ins, and the Snort rule language to help manage, tune, and deliver feedback on suspicious network activity. This course combines lecture materials and hands-on labs to ensure students are able to construct a solid, secure Snort installation and write Snort rules using proper syntax and structure.
