Fortigate Best practice

friends good day.

Based on your experience, what other good practices do you recommend to mitigate cybercriminal attacks?

Apart from not having open ports, policies without utm, vulnerable version of fortios, vpn ssl (port 443/10443) configuration.


Note: I have already read the cookbooks but I would really like to read your comments based on your experiences in this world of networks.


Dear unknown1020,


You can configure UTM profile in internet policy

DOS policy can be implemented

If there is any published server then in the incoming policy make sure to use AV, IPS

Dont allow public access on PUBLIC IP

You can use ZTNA for secure access of internal server remotely

Local in policy can be configured
