Share Article

Global Knowledge, the worldwide leader in IT and Business training, today announced the launch of its updated Cisco Security Monitoring, Analysis, and Response System (MARS) training class where students learn to use MARS to identify, manage, and eliminate network attacks and maintain network compliance. Designed for Cisco customers and channel partners, this third and latest version of the course provides students one extra day for more real-world labs, network devices, and software applications. Where the standard MARS course uses preconfigured virtual devices, the Global Knowledge course uses actual equipment to prepare students for real-world scenarios. Incoming students should have a fundamental knowledge of implementing network security and working knowledge of routing and switching.
