FortiGuard IoT Detection Service
Discover IoT Devices, Block Malicious Traffic, and Enable Virtual PatchingDownload Solution Brief
The FortiGuard IoT Detection Service helps significantly reduce your attack surface by discovering, identifying, and protecting Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices in your environment. The service includes a local (installed) library of IoT devices that is regularly expanded and updated. Meanwhile, the service utilizes a rich set of IoT IPS vulnerability signatures, developed and curated by FortiGuard Labs, to detect and block potential cyberthreats targeting IoT devices.
Today’s IoT cyberthreats dictate that an IoT IPS do more to protect an expanding network edge. The FortiGuard IoT Detection Service takes traditional IoT IPS capabilities to the next level, providing coverage for the following use cases.
Discover and identify IoT devices connected to your network to understand the risk they pose to your organization.
Apply specialized controls such as intrusion prevention for deep packet inspection to detect and block malicious threats targeting IoT devices.
Detect and block network traffic targeting an IoT device vulnerability as if a vendor patch was deployed. Virtual patching provides a critical control to mitigate IoT security risks.
