The JNCP (Juniper Network Certification Program) is one of the globally recognized and well-accepted certification programs in the computer security track that validates the capacity of an individual to describe his/her competencies with Juniper Network Technology. The successful candidates of this course will have a clear understanding of the security aspects of a computer network and the details of Junos Software, which is developed for SRX series devices.
Juniper is one of the leading computer network equipment manufacturers in the world, who are producing network switches, routers, firewalls, network OS (Operating System), and so on. This globally reputed vendor specific company has started offering training courses on the professional development of the IT professionals, more specifically the Network professionals. Routing and switching are two basic components of any computer network, regardless of the type and size of the network.
The demand for Computer Network Security professionals is getting higher as the businesses are now recognizing the need for a scalable, fault tolerance, and enterprise-level computer network for their IT infrastructure. Upon successful completion of Juniper training courses, the candidates may expect to get any one of the following job roles to start working with their career:
- Network Security Engineer
- Enterprise Network Engineer
- Senior Network Engineer – Juniper
- System Engineer – Level II
- SeniorNetwork Security Engineer
- Computer Network Administrator
- Computer Network Architect
- Cybersecurity Analyst
- Computer Network Analyst
- Network Support Engineer
The key purpose of this course is to make the candidates well prepared for the Juniper Network Certification Program (JNCP) certification exam. Upon successful completion of this course, the candidates will have a clear understanding of SRX Series Juniper Devices, Security Objects and Policies of JunOS, Advanced Threat PreventionMechanism, Network Address Translation, IPsec, Unified Threat Management, and many more.
At London IT Training we offer on-demand Juniper courses such as:
- Juniper routing and switching service provider course (JNCIA – Junos)
- Enterprise Routing and Switching, Specialist (JNCIS – ENT)
- Enterprise Routing and Switching Specialists (JNCIS – SP)
Juniper Networks Certified Associate, Security (JNCIA-SEC)
JNCIA – SEC is an associate-level course and is considered as the first step of Juniper’s offered security certification path. This course is designed for computer networking professionals who have a minimum experience of working with Juniper Network Junos OS (Operating System) for SRX Series devices. This training source also consists of different modules including the details about SRX Series Devices along with the initial configuration, interfaces, hardware details, security processing, traffic flow, and vSRX.
The next module of this course focuses on Junos Security Objects, which includes Zones, Addresses, Screens, and Address books. Then, the Security Policy module of this course covers the topics included Zone-based Policies, integrated user firewall, Unified security policies, global policies, and application firewall.
