Looks like the SITCS Exam, that is part of the CCNP: Security exam is going from v1.0 to v1.5. SITCS is the exam oriented around ‘Implementing Cisco Threat Control Soluation’. Now, it only makes sense as the original version of this exam was more geared towards Cisco IPS & CX which has since been EoX’ed some time ago. If you have been studying for your CCNP: Security and are getting ready for SITCS v1.0 exam you still have time, Cisco kept the original exam available till December 31st of 2016 so you have until the end of year.
Cisco has published a dedicated PDF regarding the charges between the exams, which can be found here.
In a nutshell though:
- EoX – Cisco IPS and CX software have been removed.
- SourceFire & AMP Software has been added in as the replacement topics.
- The exam code will be changed to 300-210 from 300-207
In my opinion, SourceFire documentation is still a little scarce even nowadays (Finding the proper version of User Agent on Cisco.com is still a bit of scavenger hunt) but hopefully this push for SourceFire knowledge will change that! (In the meantime I highly recommend checking out CiscLive365 and going through the available sessions, small collection here but it has not updated since Cisco Live 2016.)
As always, happy hunti…I mean studying!
