What you will learn

After completing these modules, you will be able to:

  • Deploy FortiGate devices as an HA cluster for fault-tolerance and high performance
  • Inspect traffic transparently, forwarding as a Layer 2 device
  • Analyze a FortiGate’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 the FortiGate
  • Implement a meshed / partially redundant VPN
  • Diagnose failed IKE exchanges
  • Fight hacking and denial of service (DoS)
  • Offer Fortinet Single Sign-On (FSSO) access to network services, integrated with Microsoft Active Directory

  • Understand encryption functions and certificates
  • Defend against data loss by identifying files with sensitive data, and blocking them from leaving your private network
  • Diagnose and correct common problems
  • Optimize performance by leveraging the ASIC acceleration chips, such as CP or NPs, instead of only the CPU resources
  • Implement IPv6 and hybrid IPv4-IPv6 networks
