IFVH – Integrating Juniper Networks Firewalls and VPNs into High-Performance Networks
3 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  Network Security

Course Details

The IFVH – Integrating Juniper Networks Firewalls and VPNs into High-Performance Networks course focuses on the ScreenOS features that are typically necessary for large-scale networks, including dynamic routing, virtual systems, traffic shaping, and high availability. Upon completing this course, students should be able to successfully install and configure ScreenOS devices.

Students should also be able to verify that a ScreenOS device is interoperating in the network as desired. Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students gain experience in configuring, testing, and troubleshooting these advanced features of ScreenOS software.
