NSE 4 - FortiGate Security

In this three-day course, you will learn how to use basic FortiGate features, including security profiles. In interactive labs, you will explore firewall policies, user authentication, SSL VPN, dial-up IPsec VPN, and how to protect your network using security profiles such as IPS, antivirus, web filtering, application control, and more. These administration fundamentals will provide you with a solid understanding of how to implement basic network security.

After completing these modules, you will be able to:

  • Deploy the appropriate operation mode for your network.
  • Use the GUI and CLI for administration.
  • Identify the characteristics of the Fortinet security fabric.
  • Control network access to configured networks using firewall policies.
  • Apply port forwarding, source NAT, and destination NAT.
  • Understand encryption functions and certificates.
  • Inspect SSL/TLS-secured traffic to prevent encryption used to bypass security policies.
  • Configure security profiles to neutralize threats and misuse, including viruses, torrents, and inappropriate websites.
  • Apply application control techniques to monitor and control network applications that might use standard or non-standard protocols and ports.
  • Fight hacking and denial of service (DoS).
  • Defend against data leaks by identifying files with sensitive data, and block them from leaving your private network.
  • Offer an SSL VPN for secure access to your private network.
  • Implement a dialup IPsec VPN tunnel between FortiGate and FortiClient.
