Attend this technical training workshop to gain hands-on experience configuring FortiNAC to secure IoT devices within the Fortinet Security Fabric.

Achieve PCI DSS Compliance with FortiWeb

Today, more than ever, businesses are measured by the value of their data. This includes product designs, patents, and corporate financial records. The most critical, and most valuable data, is the confidential information of your customers, including credentials, and credit cards. Secure access, including, transmission, processing, and storage of all of this sensitive data is critical to the success of any business. Failing to protect this information will not only cost a business in direct, immediate losses, but also in fines, legal liabilities, and an erosion of customer loyalty.


To assist businesses with protecting this valuable information, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was introduced. PCI DSS standards ensure that all businesses that accept payment card, or other e-commerce, transactions have the tools to securely accept, process, transmit, and store, this information in a secure environment.


FortiWeb provides the tools and resources to address many specific requirements of PCI DSS compliance. Not only does FortiWeb provide the basic HTTP/HTTPS firewall functions, but also allows you to address areas such as secure access, data encryption during transmission, sensitive data masking, and vulnerability scanning. Machine Learning helps to ensure your applications are protected from Zero Day threats.

Proactive Advanced Endpoint Protection, Visibility and Control for Critical Assets

Endpoints are frequently the target of initial compromise or attacks. One recent study found that 30% of breaches involved malware being installed on endpoints. Fortinet strengthens endpoint security through integrated visibility, control, and proactive defense. With the ability to discover, monitor, and assess endpoint risks, you can ensure endpoint compliance, mitigate risks, and reduce exposure.

FortiClient is more than advanced endpoint protection. As an integrated agent, FortiClient contains three key modules; Fabric Agent for security Fabric connectivity, the endpoint security modules and the secure remote access modules. Fabric Agent shares endpoint telemetry with the Security Fabric and delivers broad endpoint visibility, compliance control and vulnerability management.

Powerful Security Information and Event Management with FortiSIEM

Cyberattacks are a 24/7 reality. The complexity and growth of the enterprise estate – Infrastructure, Applications, VM’s, Cloud, Endpoints and IoT means the attack surface grows exponentially. Coupled with a skills shortage, and resource constraints, security becomes everybody’s problem but visibility, event correlation and remediation are other people’s responsibility.  Effective security requires visibility – all the devices, all the infrastructure in realtime – but also with context – what devices represent a threat, what is their capability so you manage the threat the business faces, not the noise multiple security tools create.

FortiSIEM - Fortinet’s Multivendor Security Incident and Events Management solution brings it all together by integrating NOC-SOC Solutions to Automate IT Processes and Security Responses. Visibility, Correlation, Automated Response and Remediation in a single, scalable solution. Using a FortiSIEM, the complexity of managing network and security operations is reduced, freeing resources, improving breach detection. Worldwide 80% of breaches go undetected because of skills shortage and event information ‘noise’. FortiSIEM provides the cross correlation, applies machine learning and UEBA to improve response, to stop breaches before they occur.

Use this Hands-on technical training to familiarize yourself with the Powerful Security Incident and Event Management capabilities of a FortiSIEM.

Security, Visibility and Control of Public Cloud Infrastructure and Workloads

Organizations are increasingly deploying a variety of workloads across multiple clouds. In turn, business-critical data and services are increasingly scattered across this distributed infrastructure. Using the shared responsibility model as a guiding principle, enterprises rely on cloud providers to protect the network, storage, and computing layers, while enterprises own the security.  This drives a need for solutions that complement traditional physical appliance form factors which provide visibility and maintain consistent security policy as workloads, users and data migrate to more agile, elastic, and virtualized infrastructure.

Attend this technical training workshop and gain hands-on experience configuring virtual NGFWs and Application Gateways utilizing Fortinet products to protect public cloud resources.

Secure Segmentation and Highly Available Web Application Protection in Public Cloud (AWS)

In a public cloud environment like AWS, organisations are leaning towards multiple-VPC design to provide better segmentation between the different applications. When they want secure connectivity between the different applications and their on-premises network, they also look for a centralized security posture. While VPC peering and VPN connectivity to the on-premises network provide a solution, it gets cumbersome when the number of VPCs and branch offices increase. This drives a need for a solution which can simplify and secure the connectivity between multiple VPCs and on-premises network. Due to the increase in the number of web-based applications in AWS and the shared security responsibility model in the cloud, a scalable Web Application Firewall solution increases customer’s confidence to deploy in public cloud environment.

Attend this technical workshop to gain hands-on experience to learn how Fortinet’s integration with Transit Gateway solves the need for secure connectivity between multiple VPCs and how Fortinet’s WAF solution protects customer’s web applications in a highly available manner with in-built fault tolerance that provides tight integration with AWS’s native tools.
