The Accidental Administrator: Cisco ASA Security Appliance by Don R. Crawley makes it easy for I.T. professionals and accidental administrators to configure a Cisco ASA Security Appliance

The Accidental Administrator: Cisco ASA Security Appliance

I’ve experienced first-hand the frustration of poorly-written or incomplete documentation. This book, in fact the entire Accidental Administrator series, is written with overworked I.T. professionals in mind.

The new simplified, step-by-step guide to Cisco ASA Security Appliances reached the marketplace this week. The Accidental Administrator: Cisco ASA Security Appliance is a step-by-step configuration guide. Author Don R. Crawley is a veteran technical trainer and I.T. guy whose book simplifies and speeds configuration and deployment of Cisco ASA Security Appliances.

From building a base configuration in both the command-line interface and the graphical interface, on through backups and restores, remote management, access-control lists, multiple types of VPNs, and DMZ configuration, the book provides clearly-written and time-tested hands-on step-by-step procedures.

The book is the first in the Accidental Administrator series and is based on the immensely popular Cisco ASA 5505 Security Appliance, but is written with administration of the entire line of ASAs in mind.

Based on his own experiences and frustrations in configuring and managing firewalls and other security devices, author Crawley writes with empathy for the busy I.T. professional or the accidental administrator struggling to master new equipment and technologies. “I manage the devices in our office and work with clients to manage their appliances,” says Crawley. “I’ve experienced first-hand the frustration of poorly-written or incomplete documentation. This book, in fact the entire Accidental Administrator series, is written with overworked I.T. professionals in mind.”

Independent of vendor constraints, the book is a work focused solely on the reader with no regard for any equipment manufacturer or software vendor. Based on 15 years of training and the input of students worldwide, the Accidental Administrator series is designed to share factual information about system configuration in simple, easy-to-follow hands-on exercises. The Accidental Administrator series was written for anyone interested in learning how to quickly configure and manage modern network devices.

This is the companion book to the soundtraining.net workshop Cisco ASA Training: Two-Day Hands-On Workshop.

The Accidental Administrator: Cisco ASA Security Appliance is available at Amazon.com and other channels.
