Course Description

Networking has always been one of the primary paths to becoming a security expert. This CompTIA Security+ SY0-601 course involves recognizing how to implement secure networking environments and designs.

In this course, you'll explore the concepts, techniques, and deployments involved in the following valuable network security technologies: load balancing, networking segmentation/zoning, and virtual private networks. Next, you'll examine several switch port security techniques, such as BPDU guard, DHCP snooping, and MAC filtering. You'll then recognize the various features of firewalls, such as ACLs and WAF, and compare network appliance solutions, such as port spanning, NAC, NIDS, and NIPS.

Finally, you'll outline advanced network environment solutions, like route security, IPv6, and next-gen monitoring. This course can be used in preparation for the CompTIA Security+ SY0-601 certification exam.
