FT-FW - FortiWeb 6.0


Duration: 3 days

In this three-day class, you will learn how to deploy, configure, and troubleshoot Fortinet's web application firewall: FortiWeb.

Instructors will explain key concepts of web application security, and lead lab exercises in which you will explore protection and performance features. In the lab, you will experience traffic and attack simulations that use real web applications. You will work with those simulations to learn how to distribute load from virtual servers to real servers, while enforcing logical parameters, inspecting flow, and securing HTTP session cookies.


After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Understand application-layer threats
  • Fight defacement and DoS
  • Prevent zero-day attacks without disrupting live traffic
  • Make apps retroactively compliant with OWASP Top 10 for 2013 and PCI DSS 3.0
  • Discover vulnerabilities in your servers and hosted web apps for tailored, efficient protection
  • Configure FortiGate together with FortiWeb, for stronger HTTP and XML application security
  • Prevent accidental scan circumvention, while allowing FTP and SSH
  • Configure blocking and reporting for an external FortiADC or FortiGate, and FortiAnalyzer
  • Choose the right operating mode
  • Balance load among a pool of servers
  • EnforceSSL/TLS, authentication, and sophisticated access control for “naked” apps
  • Train FortiWeb to defend your specific apps
  • Blacklist suspected hackers, DDoS participants, and content scrapers
  • Troubleshoot traffic flow, including flow for FTP/SSH
  • Diagnose false positives and customize signatures
  • Optimize performance
