In this three-day class, you will learn how to use FortiMail to protect your network from email-borne threats, and you will learn how to integrate with FortiSandbox to detect and block advanced persistent threats.
In interactive labs, you will explore the role of FortiMail as a specialized device, and how its features provide both high-performance and in-depth security for business-critical communications.
You will analyze email security challenges that administrators face, and learn where and how to deploy, manage, and troubleshoot FortiMail.
Certification- This course is intended to prepare candidates for the NSE 6 FortiMail certification exam.
The NSE 6 FortiMail certification exam counts toward one of the four NSE 6 specializations required to get the NSE 6 certification.
