Do you need to combat advanced threats? Do you need to protect web applications? This course focuses on advanced configuration and administration of the IBM Network Protection (XGS) appliance. Learn how XGS uses X-Force, PAM, Injection Logic Engine, and other tools to prevent attacks. You also learn how to use APIs to interact with the appliance, implement SNMP, set up a high availability configuration, and migrate policies from the IBM Network IPS appliance to XGS. Troubleshooting techniques are also taught.
