I am Brandon Carroll and I’m the President and CEO at Global Config Technology Solutions, Inc, creating technical training content for networking students. Over the years I’ve had extensive experience working with Firewalls, Cisco IOS, PIX, ASA, and FWSM, MPF, IPSec, IOS Firewall Technologies, Layer2/3 Attack mitigation, Identity Management, NAC, ACS and Cisco ISE. I possess multi-vendor knowledge including SDN and emerging technologies and I teach several technical courses online and in recorded video format.

I am published by Cisco Press / Pearson Education in the area of Network Security: -AAA Identity Management Security -ISBN-10: 1-58714-144-2

I enjoy blogging my thoughts on networking and sharing how-to videos and written tutorials as time permits. I also enjoy reviewing vendor products and sharing my honest opinion of them.
