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 2.01 in integration with other Fortinet devices, and how to use the various available methods of inspection for both files and harmful web sites.
