FortiGate Firewall Authentication Online Training
This intermediate FortiGate Firewall Authentication training prepares network administrators to configure FortiGate firewalls correctly so that authentication happens automatically and users stay connected to their resources.
The whole point of having a firewall is to keep resources away from the wrong people and available to the right people. Obviously users have to prove that they're the right people for a given resource, but once they do that, you want to make sure they can retain that access and don't have to re-enter credentials or get authorized again. Configuring firewall authentication is how you do that, and this course will show you how to configure firewall authentication for FortiGate firewalls specifically.
Once you're done with this Fortinet skills training, you'll know how to configure FortiGate firewalls correctly so that authentication happens automatically and users stay connected to their resources.
For anyone with network administrators on their team, this Fortinet training can be used to onboard new network administrators, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Fortinet reference resource.
