This date will be the last day CCNP Security candidates can take the IPS exam. The 642-627 exam is being replaced by the 300-207 (Implementing Cisco Threat Control Solutions, SITCS) exam, already available in the testing centers worldwide.

The new CCNP Security program targets Cisco Network Security Engineers responsible for Security in Routers, Switches, Networking devices and appliances, as well as choosing, deploying, supporting and troubleshooting Firewalls, VPNS, and IDS/IPS solutions for their networking environments.

The 300-207 Implementing Cisco Threat Control Solutions (SITCS) exam validates the skills of a network security engineer on advanced firewall architecture and configuration with Cisco’s Next Generation Firewall (NGFW). This exam covers integration of Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and context-aware firewall components, as well as Web (Cloud) and Email Security solutions. Candidates can prepare for this exam by taking the Implementing Cisco Threat Control Solutions (SITCS) course.
