The Implementing Cisco Edge Network Security (SENSS) (300-206) exam tests the knowledge of a network security engineer to configure and implement security on Cisco network perimeter edge devices such as a Cisco switch, Cisco router, and Cisco ASA firewall. This 90-minute exam consists of 65-75 questions and focuses on the technologies used to strengthen security of a network perimeter such as Network Address Translation (NAT), ASA policy and application inspect, and a zone-based firewall on Cisco routers. Candidates can prepare for this exam by taking the Cisco Edge Network Security (SENSS) course.
Implementing Cisco Threat Control Solutions (SITCS) exam (300-210) is part of the CCNP Security certification. It tests a network security engineer on advanced firewall architecture and configuration with the Cisco next-generation firewall, utilizing access and identity policies. This new revision of the SITCS exam replaces 300-207, removes some older technologies, and adds coverage for both Cisco Firepower NGIPS and Cisco AMP (Advanced Malware Protection).
