The Network Security Professional designation recognizes your ability to install and manage the day-to-day configuration, monitoring, and operation of a FortiGate device to support specific corporate network security policies.

In this course, you will learn how to use the most common FortiGate networking and infrastructure features. Topics include features commonly applied in complex or larger enterprise or MSSP networks, such as advanced routing, redundant infrastructure, virtual domains (VDOMs), zero trust network access (ZTNA), SSL VPN, site-to-site IPsec VPN, single sign-on (SSO), and diagnostics.

In this course, you will learn how to use the most common FortiGate features, including security profiles.
In interactive labs, you will explore firewall policies, the Fortinet Security Fabric, user authentication, 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.

There are two parts to this programme. FortiGate Security and FortiGate Infrastructure.

After completing FortiGate Infrastructure, you should be able to:

  • Analyze a FortiGate route table
  • Route packets using policy-based and static routes for multipath and load-balanced deployments
  • Configure SD-WAN to load balance traffic between multiple WAN links effectively
  • Inspect traffic transparently, forwarding as a Layer 2 device
  • Divide FortiGate into two or more virtual devices, each operating as an independent FortiGate, by configuring virtual domains (VDOMs)
  • Establish an IPsec VPN tunnel between two FortiGate devices
  • Implement a meshed or partially redundant VPN
  • Diagnose failed IKE exchanges
  • Offer Fortinet Single Sign-On (FSSO) access to network services, integrated with Microsoft Active Directory (AD)
  • Deploy FortiGate devices as an HA cluster for fault tolerance and high performance
  • Diagnose and correct common problems

After completing FortiGate Security, you will be able to:

  • Deploy the appropriate operation mode for your network
  • Use the GUI and CLI for administration
  • Control network access to configured networks using firewall policies
  • Apply port forwarding, source NAT, and destination NAT
  • Authenticate users using firewall policies
  • 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)
  • Collect and interpret log entries
  • Identify the characteristics of the Fortinet Security Fabric
