NSE5 - FortiManager

In this 2-days instructor-led classroom or online class, you will learn the fundamentals of using FortiManager for centralized network administration of many FortiGate devices.

This course focuses on these areas of the FortiManager GUI:

  • Device Manager
  • Policy & Objects
  • FortiGuard
  • System Settings.

By its nature, this FortiManager course targets enterprise or other large networks. It highlights these scenarios:

  • Single administrative domain with one policy package for one or many devices.
  • Single administrative domain with multiple policy packages.
  • Multiple administrative domains with no global administrative domain.

  • Use scripts.
  • Synchronize the FortiGate configuration stored on FortiManager with a deployed FortiGate.

  • Optimize performance by identifying features that you can enable on either FortiManager or FortiAnalyzer.
  • Use chassis management.
  • Diagnose errors in the FGFM protocol.

This course focuses on use of FortiManager with FortiGate devices. However, it is still valuable if you use FortiManager with:

  • FortiCarrier
  • FortiWeb
  • FortiSwitch

or to cache FortiGuard updates and respond to queries from FortiClient or FortiMail.

This course does not cover the FortiManager APIs, other than a brief overview of their purpose.
