Network Access Control (NAC) has come back to the forefront of security solutions to address that challenge. This technology was deployed to assist with bring your own device (BYOD) policies and is now getting renewed focus as a means to safely accommodate headless IoT devices in the network. FortiNAC enables three key capabilities to secure IoT devices:

  • Network visibility to see every device and user as they join the network
  • Network control to limit where devices can go on the network
  • Automated response to speed the reaction time to events from days to seconds

 

Collectively, these three capabilities provide the tools that network owners need to secure a world that is embracing IoT.

Participants who attend this workshop will learn how to:

  • Discuss the business drivers and security challenges that customers face
  • Identify the key capabilities, use cases, sales strategies, and competitive advantages of FortiNAC
  • Understand the fundamental feature set of FortiNAC

Format:

2 hour technical workshop

Objective:

Provide a compelling, hands-on learning experience for FortiNAC and teach participants how to enhance the Fortinet Security Fabric and protect against IoT threats.

Online Fast Track: Constructing a Secure SD-WAN Architecture

Online Fast Track - Constructing a Secure SD-WAN Architecture

Date: 30 April | 14.00
19 May | 10.00

As organizations transition to a digital business model, their network topologies are significantly impacted. The adoption of cloud services, the virtualization of the traditional network, and an increasingly mobile workforce accessing applications in the cloud are accelerating advancements in wide area networking technologies. The traditional wide area network (WAN) is struggling to keep up because it relies on a static infrastructure of devices that simply can't accommodate shifting, and often temporary resource allocation and workloads.

Attend this technical training workshop to learn how software-defined networking (SDN) applies to software control of wide area networks in an enterprise environment. Gain hands-on experience through actual configuration of virtualized products supporting WAN aggregation.

Participants who attend this workshop will learn how:

  • Software-defined networking (SDN) applies to software control of wide area networks in an enterprise environment
  • To implement application control and traffic shaping over SD-WAN
  • FortiManager can enable unified policy across thousands of enterprise branches
  • FortiDeploy can enable zero-touch deployment
  • To configure virtualized products supporting WAN aggregation while gaining hand-on Experience

Format:

2 hour technical workshop

Objective:

Provide a compelling hands-on learning experience about SDWAN.

Teach participants to understand an agile and cost effective architectural network solution.

Online Fast Track : Fortinet Teleworker Solution Engineered for Remote and Secure Productivity

Online Fast Track - Fortinet Teleworker Solutions

Date: 28 May | 10.00
26 May | 14.00

Organizations face a number of different potential emergency situations, such as illness, flood, hurricanes, and power outages. Implementing a business continuity plan is essential to ensuring that the organization is capable of maintaining operations in the face of adversity and preparing for potential disasters.

An important consideration for organizations developing a business continuity plan is that the organization may not be capable of sustaining normal operations onsite. The ability to support employees working remotely is essential to ensuring both business continuity and security. Fortinet solutions offer an integrated solution to support telework. FortiGate next-generation firewalls (NGFWs) have built-in support for IPsec virtual private networks (VPNs), enabling remote workers to connect securely to the company network. With endpoint protection, provided by FortiClient, and multi-factor authentication (MFA) with FortiAuthenticator, organizations can securely support remote work and maintain business continuity.

Participants who attend this workshop will learn how to:

  • Configure two-factor authentication necessary for secure access
  • Create an inbound VPN policy on FortiGate that allows teleworkers to tunnel back to corporate headquarters
  • Configure Fortinet Endpoint Management Server (EMS) to protect remote users as effectively as if they were located at the corporate office
  • Demonstrate successful operation of these critical functions

Format:

2 hour technical workshop

Objective:

Learn about the new features and capabilities that have been added to FortiOS. Provide a compelling, hands-on learning experience to understand how to easy it is to deploy, configure and enable an organization to maintain full security, visibility, and control regardless of their deployment environment.
