FortiGuard IP Reputation & Anti-Botnet Security Service

Proactively Block Attacks

Attack signatures change. New bots, botnets, and worms constantly evolve behaviors. Compromised hosts can remain launch pads for malware indefinitely. A key part of the attack kill chain on an organization is when the threat communicates with a command & control server – either to download additional threats or to exfiltrate stolen data. IP and domain address reputation block this communication, neutralizing threats.

The FortiGuard IP Reputation Service aggregates malicious source IP data from the Fortinet distributed network of threat sensors, CERTs, MITRE, cooperative competitors, and other global sources that collaborate to provide up-to-date threat intelligence about hostile sources. Near real-time intelligence from distributed network gateways combined with world-class research from FortiGuard Labs helps organizations stay safer and proactively block attacks.

The anti-botnet security service is available through the FortiGate next generation firewall.
