Using Device Definitions To Make FortiGate Policy More Granular

One of the things that I see a lot of people doing is leaving their policies super vague. This is all fun and games in a home environment where you don’t have any critical data but if you are running your business in this manner you may have issues coming up soon. Make your policies as granular as possible so you can sleep better at night!

    • You want the FortiGate to be the terminating point for the VLANs. I assume you have the Layer 3 switch as the gateway and it channels up to the Gate from there?
