Enterprise Networking, Security, and Automation Course

Welcome to the final course of the Cisco Networking Academy CCNAv7 curriculum, Enterprise Networking, Security, and Automation (ENSA). This is the third of three courses that are aligned to the CCNA Certification Exam. ENSA contains 14 modules, each with a series of topics.

In Enterprise Networking, Security, and Automation, you will take the skills and knowledge that you learned in ITN and SWRE and apply them to wide area networks (WANs). WANs are large, complex networks that require advanced understanding of network operation and security. ENSA also introduces you to two game-changing areas of networking: virtualization and automation.

By the end of this course you will be able to configure, troubleshoot, and secure enterprise network devices. You will be versed in application programming interfaces (APIs) and the configuration management tools that make network automation possible.

When you have completed ENSA, you will have gained the practical experience you need to prepare for the certification exam. You will also have the skills required for associate-level roles in the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) industry.

Let Cisco Networking Academy help you get where you want to go!
