Course Overviewremove_circle_outline

This four-day course is designed to provide students with the knowledge required to implement Juniper Networks vSRX in the AWS and Azure environments. Students will gain in-depth knowledge about how to launch and configure the vSRX using different cloud designs. Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience deploying the vSRX in multiple configurations to secure cloud resources. This course uses various releases of the vSRX from Junos OS version 15.1X49-D100 through Junos OS version 19.1R1, as well as Space, Security Director, and Policy Enforcer releases 19.1R1.
