Web Filtering

FortiGuard Web Filtering leverages a database of hundreds of millions of URLs classified into 90+ categories to enhance granular web controls and reporting. TLS 1.3 support extends analysis to encrypted traffic. It also blocks unknown malicious URLs almost immediately.

Video Filtering

Offers the industry’s first advanced video filtering service. It provides the same level of granular filtering for YouTube as it does for other web traffic, including granular controls based on channels beyond categories. This ability to apply granular video filtering controls helps organizations achieve stronger regulatory compliance.

Anti-Botnet & C2

Add anti-botnet technology to block unauthorized attempts to communicate with compromised remote servers for both receiving malicious commands and extracting information. This prevents botnets and other threats from communicating with command & control servers to exfiltrate data or download malware.

DNS Filtering

DNS filtering provides full visibility into DNS traffic while blocking high-risk domains including malicious newly registered domains (NRDs) and parked domains. It protects against sophisticated DNS-based threats including DNS tunneling, DNS infiltration, C2 server identification, and DGAs.

IP Reputation
