The security services are available as subscription feeds for the FortiGate Next-Generation Firewall and IPS platforms, the FortiMail secure email gateway, the FortiClient endpoint protection software, FortiSandbox, FortiCache, and the FortiWeb web application firewall. These feeds provide constantly updated threat intelligence, countermeasures, filters, rules, and updates to ensure that your security deployment is tuned to protect you from the latest attacks and threats.
The FortiGuard threat intelligence ecosystem encompasses research performed by FortiGuard researchers in cooperation with extended security industry and law enforcement organizations. This threat intelligence powers numerous security services delivered by the FortiGuard Distribution Network to Fortinet security solutions around the world.
This common source of intelligence not only keeps individual Fortinet solutions updated, but also allows these tools to collaborate as a single security system. Because they share a common framework, the Fortinet Security Fabric allows devices and applications to share threat intelligence, correlate data to identify sophisticated threats, and work together to coordinate a response in real-time.
