About this course

Purchase of your Knowledge Center course ensures access to the material for up to one year from the date of purchase. 


 

This course is intended to provide learners with an in-depth look at the key features and technologies of SDP for securing today’s and tomorrow’s IT infrastructures—whether they are on-premises, in the cloud, a hybrid of the two, or a case with multiple cloud service providers. Additionally, learners will be introduced to the principles of Least Privilege and Need to Know, policy-based authorization and access controls, and the similarities and differences between SDP and SDN.

After completing this course, learners will be able to:

  • Understand the limitations of traditional security architecture when integrating security controls, securing shifting perimeters, and dealing with the IP address challenge
  • Explain SDP’s key features, including separate data and control planes, default drop-all firewalls, and single packet authorization
  • Discuss how policy-based authorization and granular access controls help enforce the principle of least privilege and need to know
  • Distinguish between SDP’s secure remote access and virtual private network
  • Describe mutual authentication, tunneling, micro-segmentation, and identity and access management in the context of SDP 
  • Compare and contrast software-defined networks and SDP

This course is a great fit for users in any of the following roles:

  • C-Suite (CEO, CTO, CISO, CIO)
  • Managers and Decision Makers
  • Cybersecurity Analysts
  • Security Engineers and Architects
  • Enterprise Architects
  • Security Administrators
  • Compliance Managers
  • Systems Engineers
  • Developers

After completing this course you will receive a certificate for 1 course hour that can be submitted for possible CPE credits.
