Fortinet FortiGate II – Multi Threat Security Systems Training - Objectives:

After completing this Fortinet FortiGate II – Multi Threat Security Systems Training course, attendees 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
• Implement a meshed / partially redundant VPN
• Diagnose failed IKE exchanges
• Fight hacking & denial of service (DoS)
• Diagnose IPS engine performance issues
• Offer Fortinet Single Sign On (FSSO) access to network services, integrated with Microsoft Active Directory
• 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
