Description

FortiManager Centralized Device Management  (FMGT)

In this 2-day class, you will learn the fundamentals of using FortiManager for centralized network administration of many FortiGate devices. Example use cases include large enterprise and carrier networks. You will explore various deployment strategies which include single or multiple ADOMs, policy packages, shared objects, & provisioning FortiManager as a local FortiGuard Distribution Server for your managed firewalls.

This course is part of preparation for the NSE 5 certification exam.

Training material: English

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

Describe capabilities of FortiManager
Add FortiGate devices to Device Manager and import their running configuration
Use provisioning templates and scripts for device-level changes across many devices
Identify the synchronization states
Manage the revision history of managed devices
Offer a local FortiGuard Distribution Server to your Fortinet devices
Deploy administrative domains (ADOMs) to support multiple customers on a single FortiManager
Manage firewall policies across multiple FortiGate devices using policy packages with shared and dynamic objects
Deploy policies and objects from the global ADOM to multiple ADOMs
Explain high availability, backup, and recovery options for FortiManager
Compare methods for centrally managing IPsec VPNs
Explain the restricted "admin" profile and API high-level usage
Use workspaces and workflow mode
Identify steps to replace a managed FortiGate device
Manage FortiGate devices' firmware centrally

Audience
