Secure Remote Access Administrator Training v10

Course Description/Agenda

This three-day course provides instruction on the administration and management of the SonicWALL Aventail E-Class SSL VPN appliance to enable secure, anywhere access to applications and resources for employees, business partners, and other users.

You will learn how to use the SonicWALL Aventail Management Console (AMC) to provide users with secure access to any application from corporate laptops or un-managed computers based on secure authentication and authorization policies and appropriate End Point Control requirements. You will also learn how to deploy SonicWALL Symantec Secure Desktop for added security and to deploy graphical terminal shortcuts for native Web-based access to Windows Terminal Servers and Citrix server farms.

Formative evaluations (knowledge checks and hands-on exercises) are incorporated throughout, and at the end of the course, the instructor will administer an online certification exam.


Any participant who successfully completes this course and passes the certification exam will be deemed a Certified SonicWALL System Administrator (CSSA).
