Course Objectives

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Deploy FortiGate devices as an HA cluster for fault-tolerance & high performance
  • Inspect traffic transparently, forwarding as a Layer 2 device
  • Manage FortiGate device's route table
  • Route packets using policy-based and static routes for multi-path and load-balance deployments
  • Connect virtual domains (VDOMs) without packets leaving FortiGate

  • Inspect SSL/TLS-secured traffic to prevent encryption used to bypass security policies
  • Understand encryption functions and certificates
  • Defend against data leaks by identifying files with sensitive data, and blocking them from leaving your private network
  • Diagnose and correct common problems
  • Optimize performance by configuring to leverage ASIC acceleration chips, such as CP or NPs, instead of only the CPU resources
  • Implement IPv6 and hybrid IPv4-IPv6 networks
