Course Overviewremove_circle_outline

In this 1-day class, you will learn how to form network baseline data, and how to recognize and mitigate individual and distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks while preserving service and network performance.

In interactive labs, you will deploy FortiDDoS to learn about normal network traffic patterns. Then you will simulate attacks, observe the defense, and adjust the automatically estimated behavior.

With a focus on core feature skills, topics also include network behavior analysis and ASIC chips.

This course is part of preparation for the NSE 6 certification exam.
