FortiGate Infrastructure (FORT-SECII)

 

Course Overview

In this two-day course, you will learn how to use advanced FortiGate networking and security.

Topics include features commonly applied in complex or larger enterprise or MSSP networks, such as advanced routing, transparent mode, redundant infrastructure, site-to-site IPsec VPN, single sign-on (SSO), web proxy, and diagnostics.

Who should attend

Networking and security professionals involved in the design, implementation, and administration of a network infrastructure using FortiGate appliances should attend this course.

This course assumes knowledge of basic FortiGate fundamentals. Participants should have a thorough understanding of all the topics covered in the FortiGate Security course before attending the FortiGate Infrastructure course.
