This 2-day class is designed for MSSPs as the next step after the 5-day AlienVault® USM Appliance™ for Security Engineers (AUSE) class. The class focuses on the Federated Architecture (FA) model, covering the concepts, deployment, verification and operation of a multi-tier model.

Description: The course starts with an overview of how USM Appliance can empower an MSSP. We cover the basic concepts of federation, and how USM Appliance is deployed in a Federated Architecture (FA) model. We setup a federated environment and verify that it is operating properly. We give an overview of how to perform security analytics from a top level federation USM Appliance server and automate alerts and tickets from client alarms. We cover reporting, and how to administer users in a FA model. There is a section addressing troubleshooting, to learn how to troubleshoot input collection issues, USM Appliance component connectivity issues, and various USM Appliance operational issues.
