The Arista NDR course is best suited for individuals with mid-to-senior level experience in network and/or security operations. It is intended for security engineers who manage the security posture of their environment and/or network engineers who are looking to gain a better understanding of malicious behavior on the network. While the expectation is that candidates will be part of medium to large environments, any size of organization will be able to gain a better understanding of network traffic and use the tools to better identify potential threats.

This course includes a dedicated lab environment where previously recorded network traffic is replayed to represent “real time traffic” to Arista NDR.
Course Overview

ACE:NDR is a 2-day course designed to show current challenges security architects face with new and emerging threats and attacks. Malicious activities can be performed by individuals who have administrative access to systems and information using encryption to further compromise networks. These behaviors can be difficult for other tools to identify; Arista NDR looks at network traffic to determine behaviors, and uses AI and ML techniques to identify this suspected malicious behavior. Course candidates will gain a better understanding of challenges faced by legacy protection mechanisms and how Arista’s NDR adds additional information and understanding about network traffic. Candidates will use Arista’s NDR to see the behavior of network traffic and learn how to use the tools to enhance their threat hunting abilities.

"Great course which did an amazing task to introduce us to 'The Arista Way' in a manner which was easily graspable and fun”

Jayeshh S

"It's refreshing that a tech company is still teaching/stressing networking basics ; a solid foundation is key for any capable architect or engineer.”


"Really nice course. It is great and many important topics are touched e.g. VXLAN, Routing, CloudVision”

Pawel K

"The course helped me to have an overview of network areas that I didn't have contact with and to understand the field application of the ones I had. ”

Robert O

"Great course that goes into detail for each topic listed. Learned many concepts that will help me in the future with my network assignments.”


"The in depth explanation of the topics, especially the inner working of EVPN and VXLAN was excellent. Deconstructing the packets and operational flow is very valuable to understand exactly how these technologies work. The instructor did a great job of explaining this and his depth of knowledge was obvious.”

Shayne K

"The course does a good job of covering all the aspects of automation and how they apply to Arista products. The lab content is very structured and I really like the large and comprehensive lab environment. Much better than other vendor classes I've participated in.”

Nathan M

"The course was what I was looking for - introduction to automation. The difficulty level was perfect, it was challenging enough and I felt like I learnt a lot. I especially liked the labs.”


"I liked the fact the course was designed for both people knew how to code as well as people familiar with it. I learned a lot, and it made me more comfortable realizing that automation is not actually out of my grasp.”

Andrei M

"The instructor was fantastic, had a clear understanding on the materials that were being presented and was able to backup his presentations with his knowledge.”

Brian B

"The instructor was very knowledgable and able to explain the concepts very clearly, using his own diagrams that he drew during class specifically to explain certain topics. I felt he was also very approachable and helpful when answering any questions I had.”


"Fantastic course. The layout was great and the labs were great also. Not a single complaint or even constructive criticism. You can see the amount of hard work that went into building this class.”
