IT or network security professionals who want to master the use of Blue Coat Security Analytics and who have completed the Symantec Security Analytics Administrator course.

Participants should have a sound understanding of the OSI reference model and common networking protocols, and how those protocols make connections, keep state, and transfer data, along with basic experience with network packet and flow analysis, including the use of PCAP files, tcpdump, and Wireshark.
