About Alexandre M.S.P. Moraes


Alexandre Matos da Silva Pires de Moraes (Alexandre M.S.P. Moraes) has worked as a Systems Engineer for Cisco Brazil since 1998. His expertise lies not only in the areas of Security and VPN, but he has also excelled in projects involving Routing Protocol and Campus Design, IP Multicast Routing, and MPLS Network Design.


In his 2011 Cisco Press security book, Cisco Firewalls--a 912-page tome--Moraes masterfuly covers both ASA-centric and IOS-based firewall deployments  and addresses the motivations for the use of features of each of those  two types clearly--from the basics to the CCIE using a step-by-step  approach with plentiful examples to build understanding. His vast knowledge and experience in networking security and a keen ability to teach complex subjects effectively is evident in the book.


Moraes, who holds three CCIE certifications--in Routing & Switching, Security, and Service Provider--and a degree in electronic engineering from the Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica (ITA – Brazil), has led teams of security engineers in Brazil. He is a frequent and popular speaker at Cisco Live.
