Integrate and Automate with APIs

Technology alliance partners integrate with the Fortinet Security Fabric via APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) to actively collect and share threat and mitigation information to improve threat intelligence, enhance overall threat awareness, and broaden threat response from end to end. The APIs enable automated operations through dynamic sharing of local and global threat intelligence across security components, which can use that information to orchestrate a coordinated, rapid threat response to stop cyberthreats anywhere along the attack chain. The Fabric enables the development and delivery of comprehensive, end-to-end security solutions that can dynamically adapt to the evolving network architecture as well as the changing threat landscape.



The Fortinet Security Fabric provides the following categories of APIs:


Manage Fortinet deployments and integrate with external provisioning, monitoring, inventory and change management systems.


Leverage Fortinet’s programmable interfaces and virtualized purpose-built cloud instances for broad integration with infrastructure vendors and cloud platforms.

SDN Orchestration

Integrate FortiGate and FortiManager with SDN platforms to apply security policies and perform orchestration seamlessly across logical and dynamic environments.

Endpoint and IoT

Enable third-party endpoint solutions to leverage FortiSandbox for inspection and analysis, and act on dynamic threat intelligence.


Provide on-demand software-defined network security features in virtualized environments and software-defined data centers.


Enable third-party applications to synchronize log files from FortiManager and FortiAnalyzer for real-time security analytics, compliance, and audit reports.

Vulnerability Management

Integrate third-party vulnerability scanners with FortiWeb to provide dynamic virtual patches to mitigate security issues in application environments.

Network and Security Operations

Integrate third-party applications via FortiSIEM APIs to enable simple and rapid integration of sources of data for monitoring and managing network security, performance, and compliance.

Fortinet's technology alliance partners leverage Fabric APIs to integrate with Fortinet products and solutions and help customers get even more value from their security deployments.
