FortiGuard® Vulnerability Management Service

The FortiGuard Vulnerability Management (VM) Service enables organizations to minimize the risk of vulnerabilities by quickly discovering vulnerabilities, measuring the potential risk, and then providing the information necessary to mitigate those risks. Additionally, a compliance reporting function provides organizations with actionable reports that can identify areas for remediation. These policies are continuously updated to ensure OS regulatory compliance requirements are met and releases are delivered via the FortiGuard global distribution network.
