What is DNA Training?

Cisco's Digital Network Architecture (DNA) training helps IT talent in developing stronger, more strategic skills.

Today's network is evolving from hardware-centric to virtualized software-centric that thrives on digital innovation. For IT professionals, the ability to deploy and support a digital-ready network requires adopting rapidly evolving technologies in software-defined networking (SDN), mobility, enhanced security, flexible access, and virtualization, while taking full advantage of cloud services. One technology will ultimately affect many others.

This evolution has created a demand for new skills. Today's IT Talent needs to understand the relationship between technology and business.


Cisco Certifications allow you to prove your ability within your organization or establish your credentials with hiring managers. These are created to prepare you to design and deploy industry-leading Cisco DNA solutions if you're focused on security at the access or core of the infrastructure, deployed on-premises or through a cloud model.

You can choose a career path below that meets your professional goals.

Enterprise Network Security

Cisco's network provides both 360 degree visibility and comprehensive automation. It allows you to confidently grow your business, implement technologies, and anticipate and respond to new threats.

What can it do?

Turn your network into a security system with solutions designed to interoperate and provide multilayered protection

Choose between integrated, dedicated, and cloud-managed options for comprehensive end-to-end security.

Use real-time data to secure access, provide intelligence, and sense suspicious activity- even in encrypted traffic.

Enforce policy and take action to protect your organization across the network from known and unknown threats.

What's inside?

Secure access to your evolving network, gain insights and awareness of everything hitting your network, and get alerted to policy violations and compromised devices in real time

Grant the right levels of access to the right users. Contain potential attacks. Gain the power to take actions to protect your organization across the network.

Reduce risk with security embedded into hardware and software by design.

Confidently grow your business, implement new technologies, and anticipate and respond to threats with Security Services. 

Routing and Switching

The roles and skills necessary for a core network engineer are evolving and more critical than ever before. As Enterprises move toward controller based architectures what's required will be rapidly changing. To prepare for this network shift, the CCNA Routing and Switching certification will help you master the skills you need to implement, monitor, and troubleshoot Cisco network solutions.

You will gain the skills and ability to administer networks of varied size, complexity and design, from simple IPv4 and IPv6 networks, to medium and large enterprise networks, to complex/converged network infrastructures.

What is SDA?

Software-Defined Access (SDA) is the industry’s first intent-based networking solution for the Enterprise built on the principles of DNA. SD-Access provides automated 360 degree segmentation to separate user, device and application traffic without redesigning the network.

SD-Access automates user access policy so organizations can make sure the right policies are established for any user or device with any application across the network. This is accomplished with a single network fabric across LAN and WLAN which creates a consistent user experience anywhere without compromising on security.
