Multi-functional security is a major requirement for small and medium-sized enterprises.

Due to increased firewall requirements there is the increasing need for packet and proxy filtering and for the remote management.

This course covers specification, installation, configuration and management of the FireBox X range of multi-function security appliances using latest WSM version 10.
