Course Overview

The latest technology in information security is Intrusion Prevention. Rather than relying on human intervention to respond to an attack, Intrusion Prevention Systems automatically stops hackers, worms, and disgruntled employees before their attacks can be completed. This all happens before they can cause damage, potentially saving your organization millions. In Intrusion Prevention you will learn how this groundbreaking IPS technology works, how to deploy it, and how to manage it efficiently and effectively.

As with any new automated technology, there are many perils to avoid when implementing it. Just as Intrusion Prevention Systems can prevent hackers and worms, they can easily be configured incorrectly which can block legitimate users from doing their jobs. The intrusion prevention training you receive in this system and network security course will enable you to deploy intrusion prevention systems safely.

Rest assured, we have made every effort to replicate the same training experience you would receive in our Instructor-Led Intrusion Prevention course. Many online or CBT training offerings are simply a recording of a talking head. InfoSec Institute's Intrusion Prevention Online includes a shipment of software that is loaded onto your computer, which allows you to complete over 30 hours of hands-on lab exercises! Not only do you get high quality instruction from an expert instructor, with InfoSec Institute, you also perform hands-on lab exercises that allow for real knowledge transfer. 

How You'll Benefit:

The Intrusion Prevention training offered by InfoSec Institute covers all areas of intrusion prevention. Host Intrusion Prevention and Network Intrusion Prevention are covered in great detail.

You will learn the technical details that make Intrusion Prevention Systems so effective. Much of technical learning is best done by doing, so you will experience a multitude of hands on lab exercises using popular technologies like Entercept, Okena, Inline Snort, Netscreen, Internet Security Security Systems, Top Layer. Additionally, you will learn how to enable Intrusion Prevention features built into operating systems such as OpenBSD, Solaris, Linux and even Tru64.
