I too am getting very frustrated about how long these guides are taking to come out..it's been over a year since the exams were changed.
Like others I'm in the tricky situation that I've got 2 of the older exams (IPS and Firewall 2.0). If Cisco/Cisco Press don't pull there finger out soon it's likely (if not already) that these won't count towards the CCSP (sorry CCNP Security). I'm currently studying for the SISAS which I attempted to take last weekend but unfortunately failed due to the material being out of date with the exam (exam seems to be asking questions about ISE 2.0 even though it was only release in October where study guide includes up to 1.2).
I would also like to add that the quality of these guides whilst still some of the best for self-study have not only been taking longer and longer to be released, the quality has also suffered (more and more typos). This means they can't be taking longer to be released because the publisher wants to make sure they are spot on.
Please don't suggest the over priced courses, I've got better things to do than spend a week in a classroom. At least in my country I don't find the quality of these courses up to scratch either.
I'm sorry to know that course training is not a viable option for you. We understand the concerns regarding the availability of the other CCNP Security Certification Guides and we encourage candidates to contact the Cisco Press Customer Service for information or inquiries regarding certification guide release/publishing dates. We will also be sure to provide any information as it becomes available.
Also, as mentioned previously, please be sure you use the resources under the Study Material tabs in the CCNP Security page and check the CCNP Security Tech Seminars and CCNP Security Training Videos.

This is probably too late for the original poster but for anyone else who is going to be attempting the SIMOS exam I'd like to suggest the material I used for self study.
One of the older books is "IPSec VPN Design" (ISBN: 1587051117). Whilst published in 2005, is still relevant to the content in the exam (specifically GRE tunnels and DMVPN).
For the newer VPNs such as "FlexVPN", the book "IKEv2 IPSEC Virtual Private Networks" (ISBN: 1587144603) was published in Sept 2016 and covers a lot of the content necessary for passing the exam.
For AnyConnect/SSLVPN, the "Cisco ASA: All-in-one Next-generation Firewall" (ISBN: 1587143070) book published in April 2014 should be good enough. Whilst this ASA specific a lot of the content is relevant to the IOS version of WebVPN and any IOS specific configuration can usually be found on the Cisco website such as:
I believe that GETVPN is only a small portion of the current exam (knowledge of rather being required to config/troubleshoot it) so the Cisco deployment guides should be sufficient for an overview:
Whilst I didn't find it that helpful, for anyone very new to this technology there is a SIMOS video course on Udemy which goes through the very basic with lots of examples of how to configure the various VPNs using IOS and ASA. Recommend waiting until they have a sale on as it's over priced for what it is at full price.
I passed the Exam this weekend with a reasonable score so hope this material is of use to someone else trying to self study for the exam.
As long as sufficient general reference material (if a little more inconvenient and costly that a single book) is out that, I'll take back my comments about Cisco/Cisco Press's lack of good study guides because a general reference book is going to find a much longer life span on my bookshelf than one written just for a specific exam.
Congratulations and thanks for sharing these tips.
I found this guide in Cisco Press CCNP Security SIMOS 300-209 Official Cert Guide but it seems like a joke.
I am working on my last exam, 300-209, to complete CCNP Security. I hope that when I finish it, there is a guide for CCIE.
