New Video Update: In this video update (5 minutes) we will show how you can troubleshoot high CPU issues on the FortiGate appliance. We thought this would be a great video topic to add to this series because this is something we do from time to time when a customer experiences performance related issues out to the Internet.

The videos in this series is applicable for FortiGate using FortiOS versions 5.4,  5.6, and 6.0.

Do you want to learn how to block certain applications like BitTorrent, Skype, to Social Networking? Do you want to learn how to decrypt a secure web page to inspect it further?

In this video series you will learn how to do many of these things and much more.

Fortinet’s FortiGate security appliance is a Next-Generation Firewall that is focused on application inspection where you can control what a user can access within a specific application.
