Check Point Security Administrator (CCSA) R80.20

Course Overview

Today, managing security is a complex endeavor. The key to managing this complexity is through security consolidation – bringing all security protections and functions under one umbrella. With R80 management, security consolidation is fully realized. This course covers everything you need to start-up, configure and manage the daily operations of your Check Point infrastructure with all R80 platforms.

Also, our courses go well beyond the standard Check Point classes with improvements such as exam guidance, topics “not in the book” and bonus materials that allow students to explore and use R80.40 hands-on or any other mix of R80.10 through R80.40. 

This course prepares the participants for the CCSA R80.20 certification exam #156-215.80.
