SD-Branch: Securing Your Ethernet Switching Infrastructure with FortiSwitch, FortiAP, and FortiLink
Date & Time
Thursday, October 14, 2021, 9:30 AM - 1:30 PM

How can organisations converge security and network access to reduce complexity while increasing security?

Fortinet secure access architecture powered by FortiLink is uniquely suited to SD-Branch deployments, with Ethernet switch and wireless access point management built into the same platform that drives our Secure SD-WAN solution, the FortiGate and FortiOS.

In this workshop, participants learn how enabling FortiLink between FortiSwitch, FortiAP, and a FortiGate integrates the devices into the FortiGate network security platform. Thus, the FortiSwitch and FortiAP can be managed directly from the familiar FortiGate interface. This single-pane-of-glass management provides complete visibility and control of all users and devices on the network, regardless of how they connect.

Participants who attend this workshop will learn how to:

  • Create a FortiLink interface n Authorize FortiSwitch and FortiAP devices
  • Create VLANs and policies
  • Create SSIDs n Configure radio frequency (RF) parameters
  • Assign firewall policies to FortiGate interfaces
