DCSVR – Data Center Security with Virtual Reality
2 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  Data Center Security

Course Details

Data Center Security with Virtual Reality (DCSVR) is a 2-day instructor-led course. Security is every enterprise’s top priority in today’s connected world and keeping Data Center secure will protect business values and outcomes. This course uses Cisco Validated Designs (CVD) to build a foundational understanding of the potential security threats impacting todays advanced Data Centers. The goal of this course is to help the student understand the types of attacks, the types of targets and the tools available to protect the DC. The learner will get virtual hands on experience with racking and connecting security appliances in a virtual environment using NterOne’s ClearConnect VR application. We will also discuss newer security solutions such as Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI), Stealth watch and Tetration to understand how logical separation, data mining and anomaly detection can help us protect the infrastructure. Practical skills will be achieved using real-world scenarios and examples in a traditional lab as well as a state-of-the-art virtual reality environment developed by NterOne.
