    It's not based off old outdated topics, you get a pod to lab the whole time, you get thousands of pages of workbooks and you have an instructor who has decades of Advanced Services experience instead of a professional instructor

    You mentioned instructor's name is Piotr. It's not Piotr Kaluzny teaching the course, is it? The guy from IPexperts.
    Either way, thank you for your review. I will be taking this class starting 27 Aug.

    @IrisAngel:
    You haven an IE in DC. You have attended R&S Bootcamp and Sec ZtoH course. Given that Cisco does not have a dominant presence in the Security market as it does with its R&S and Collaboration; do you think the next IE Sec ver 5 is going to make some impact? There are other strong players like Palo Alto, Juniper, Checkpoint, Fortinet in the industry.

    I am fiercely deciding whether to take up IE in R&S or IE in Sec. I am inkling toward Sec, but my concern is about the career avenue with IE Sec. Any insight is appreciated.

    Best,
    Fumanchu

    Cisco doesn't have a dominant presence in the security industry? That's news to me and the industry:
    Cisco recognized for security leadership at the 2016 RSA Conference
    With $2 Billion Run Rate, Cisco Ranks as World
    Worldwide Security Appliance Market Continues to Grow in the First Quarter of 2015 as Cyber Attacks Become Increasingly Sophisticated, According to IDC - prUS25671815

    You're listing firewalls. While Cisco still has a big market share in terms of firewalling, there's a lot more to security than that. Quick review of Cisco Security:
    IPS/Malware Protection - Sourcefire and AMP dedicated appliances
    Content Filtering for Web and Security - Ironport ESA/WSA, Cloud Web Security, URL Filtering on Firepower, etc
    DNS Security - OpenDNS
    Network Access Control - ISE
    NGFW - Firepower 4100/9300s
    Endpoint Security - AMP For Endpoints, AnyConnect
    Behavior and Anomaly detection - Lancope StealthWatch
    Threat Analytics - Cognitive Threat Analytics
    Security Management - Defense Orchestrator

    There are always going to be strong players in the field and some might be better than Cisco and some might not be - but I very much doubt any one company has the breadth of security products that Cisco does and I very much doubt Cisco is going to bow out of the security field.

    As far as the other security vendors, Juniper has been selling off pieces of their security business here and there so I don't really see SRXs as much anymore. I don't see a whole lot of Fortinet in the $1B company space either which is what I work with. Checkpoint is still around and kicking butt. Palo Alto I see more of though to be honest and there's a strong appeal there in terms of user experience - not so much security - but good GUIs sell and Cisco and other vendors could learn from that. While having strong cross-vendor firewall skills are important, I don't want to just be the "firewall gal"

    Thanks IristheAngel for the super quick response.
    The links you sent were an eye opener. Glad I asked for your opinion.

    Just finished watching Cisco Community Event.

    Speakers:
    • Rob Soderbery, SVP Enterprise Products and Services, Cisco
    • Dave Mallory, Chief Technology Officer, Learning@Cisco, CCIE
    • Jeanne Beliveau-Dunn, Vice President and General Manager of Learning@Cisco
    • Yusuf Bhaji, Senior Manager, Global Certifications, CCIE
    what to watch:
    - Trend towards DNA (Digital Network Architecture)
    - Cisco to keep investing heavy on Security, given the global rise in online security threats
    - In 7-10 years CLI (command line interface) to fully phase out. All about API (application programmable interface)
    - All networkers to start getting into network programming
    - Network Programmability Specialist and Cyber Security Specialist certs already started
    - All CCIE labs would incorporate API, SDN, DNA, IoT (see attached)

    The good point is that the CCIE will reflect those changes and will not become an obsolete certification in the industry.
    The other interesting point is represented by the blended skills that the profession will require in a couple of years from now. With regard existing exams for obtaining a certification in network programmability, I have not found much training material online. I wanted to study programmability since I used to do some scripting and it would be fun to play the game.


    Great post.

    P.S: I just wonder how Iris retains all this stuff. CCIE RS on the way, DC and now Security.

    - Prepare for CCNP Sec certs
    - Read Harris Andrea series, Narbik, Sadat, Yusuf, Jabiz etc
    - Listen to INE Sec ATC
    - Lab INE
    - Join Sec study group
    - Join Zero to Hero (Dec batch. Will be able to get the most out of it then)
    - Read and lab Natalie Timms

    Anything to add?

    I put off the R&S and am working on Security now. I'll do R&S next after I get the CCIE Security. It didn't make sense to pursue R&S given all the security stuff I'm doing at work

    @Iristheangel

    I am making a transition from Voice to Security. The lack of security knowledge bothers me and I don't consider myself an accomplished IT without it . Do you enjoy working with Security devices? Do you have to deal with end users?
    Thanks,
    Fumanchu

    @Fumanchu - I work in pre-sales so I have to deal with clients. I do enjoy the technical aspects of my job and I do set up POCs and do an extensive amount of labbing and testing. Every once in awhile (or additionally more times if I want to) I can jump into TAC cases and help out with my customers when issues arise. I don't have "on call" or anything like that but that's more to do with my job than the security field.

    I have some CLC's to use and might do this.

    I have a newborn at home, so I need to make sure the wife is okay with me spending Saturdays doing this.

    One thing to be aware of is that each class is recorded so even if your wife isn't a fan of you waking up early every Saturday, you could be watching the recording any time of the week

    I really loved the way you express about this program. I was looking for a good suggestion and I'm going for this program indeed. Just waiting to have my manager confirmation and start on August 2016. Thanks for the positive feedback. Perhaps my only question to you would be:
    So far have you seeing any flaws the way the course is provided? Any negative feedback that sometimes helps as well?

    Thanks and PURA VIDA!

    Just a follow up question about this zero to hero class. For those who have taken the class, when you compare the new security v5 blueprint, does this class serve as a prep class without having to go take another class, provided you do your own lab prep supplement?

    Thanks.

    Hi. Regarding the Security 0-hero class, would you say it's more lab preparation or writtem? And what version are they focusing on, v4 (for people trying to wrap things up before January) or v5?
    I'm thinking about doing the Sec v4 written, but I won't have time to pass the v4 lab before hey change to all the new technology for v5.

    v5 and lab prep more than written prep.
