ZCNP Security - v1.0 EN

A firewall is a network device that connects various computer networks by routing packets from one network to another. It monitors incoming and outgoing network traffic and decides whether to allow or block specific traffic based on a defined set of security rules. Firewalls have formed a first line of defense in network security for over 25 years.
This course presents and explains firewalls and their features. Students will explore routing, virtual private networks (VPN), network address translation (NAT), and how to protect a network using unified threat management (UTM) services such as intrusion detection and prevention (IDP), anti-virus, application patrol, content filtering, and email security. These security fundamentals will provide students with a solid understanding of how to implement basic network security.
