The NSE 4 Network Security Professional designation identifies your ability to configure, install, and manage the day-to-day configuration, monitoring, and operation of a FortiGate device to support specific corporate network security policies.

In this 39 hour course under the Fortinet Network Security Academy, you will learn how to use advanced FortiGate networking and security. Topics include features commonly applied in complex or larger enterprise or MSSP networks, such as advanced routing, transparent mode, redundant infrastructure, site-to-site IPsec VPN, single sign-on (SSO), web proxy, and diagnostics.

The topics which will be covered are:

  • Routing

  • Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN)

  • Virtual Domains

  • Layer 2 Switching

  • Site-to-Site IPsec VPN

  • Fortinet Single Sign-On (FSSO)

  • High Availability (HA)

  • Web Proxy

  • Diagnostics

Curriculum Objectives

  • 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

  • Compare policy-based to route-based IPsec VPN

  • 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

  • Deploy implicit and explicit proxy with firewall policies, authentication, and caching Diagnose and correct common problems
