Last week I passed the Fortinet NSE4_FGT-6.4 Exam. This exam earned me the Fortinet Networks Security Professional NSE 4 credentials. It is a part of the Fortinet Network Security Expert (NSE) certification track. It’s the 4th level in this 8 level track. I would like to share my experience with you.
I am a Cybersecurity Engineer working in a telecom company. I am working with my present employer for the last 5 years. I have done bachelors in computer application. I have also earned CompTIA Network+, CompTIA Security+, and Fortinet Network Security Associate certifications. I joined the company as a network administrator after my graduation and CompTIA Network+ certification. Later on, I selected the cybersecurity domain after passing CompTIA Security+ certification. As we’ve Fortinet infrastructure deployed so I started the Fortinet NSE track and earned NSE 3 Associate level. For the training material for the Fortinet NSE4_FGT-6.4 exam, I selected the PDF and Testing Engine package from Examsvce. My trust in Examsvce is backed by the experience of previous certifications. Braindumps from Examsvce has always been up to the mark due to their authentic content. I completed the training in 4 weeks with the help of NSE4_FGT-6.4 practice test and the PDF study guide.
