Continuous network monitoring is instrumental in obtaining peak performance. Explore monitoring concepts, including event logs, alerts, and patch management. Also, discover remote access methods, such as VPNs, RDP, SSH, VNC, and telnet.

Learning Objectives

Scanning, Monitoring, and Patching

  • start the course
  • describe common processes such as log reviewing, port scanning, and vulnerability scanning
  • describe common maintenance tasks such as patch management, rollback, reviewing baselines, and packet/traffic analysis
  • describe common event management processes such as notifications, alerts, and SIEM
