Fortinet Adds Network Security Expert Certification Program

July 30, 2014 - News

Network security provider Fortinet is introducing a technical certification program – Network Security Expert (NSE) – designed to help customers, partners and security professionals demonstrate expertise in the company’s full range of products.

"We have designed the new certification program to help enable participants to greatly expand upon their knowledge and expertise of Fortinet's expansive network security portfolio, and to better prepare them to enter untapped markets," said Joe Sykora, vice president of Americas sales operations and channels at Fortinet.

The new certification has eight levels. Open to everyone, including the entire partner community, the new program includes a wide range of self-paced and instructor led courses, as well as practical, experiential exercises that demonstrate mastery of complex network security concepts. Topics range from survey-level courses at the lower levels to advanced architectural level subject matter at the high levels, Fortinet said.

The time commitment varies depending upon course level, with the highest levels requiring extensive experience and study. All of Fortinet's online courses are free to channel partners.

The new NSE program incorporates newly created content not covered in FCNSA and FCNSP certifications, and over time will eventually replace the existing certifications.
