Implementing Juniper Networks Secure Analytics (IJSA)

This three-day course discusses the configuration of Juniper Networks JSA Series Secure Analytics (formerly known as Security Threat Response Manager [STRM]) in a typical network environment. Key topics include deploying a JSA Series device in the network, configuring flows, running reports, and troubleshooting.
 
Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring, testing, and troubleshooting the JSA Series device. This course uses the Juniper Networks Secure Analytics (JSA) VM virtual appliance for the hands-on component. This course is based on JSA software 2014.2R4. Implementing Juniper Networks Secure Analytics is an introductory-level course.
 
Target Audience
This course is intended for network engineers, support personnel, reseller support, and anyone responsible for implementing the JSA system.
