FortiWeb Administrator

In this three-day class, you will learn how to deploy, configure, and troubleshoot Fortinet’s web application firewall: FortiWeb.

Instructors will explain key concepts of web application security, and lead lab exercises in which you will explore protection and performance features. In the lab, you will experience traffic and attack simulations that use real web applications. You will work with those simulations to learn how to distribute load from virtual servers to real servers, while enforcing logical parameters, inspecting flow, and securing HTTP session cookies.

Certification- This course prepares you for the FortiWeb Specialist Exam. The FortiWeb Specialist exam counts toward one of the four NSE 6 specializations required to get the NSE 6 certification.
