FortiSandbox - NSE 6 (FORTISANDBOX)

 

Course Overview

In this 1-day class, you will learn the basics of FortiSandbox — how malware works, how virus writers try to avoid detection, and how you can regain the advantage in the battle to secure your network from zero-day threats.

In interactive labs, you will explore how to deploy FortiSandbox in integration with other Fortinet devices, and how to use the various available methods of inspection for both files and harmful web sites. You will also learn how to optimize sandboxing performance for your specific network, how to submit malware samples to Fortinet's security research labs.

This course prepares you for the FortiSandbox 2.0.3 Specialist Exam. This is part of the courses that prepare you for the NSE 6 certification exam.
