Top Threat Intelligence Research

Fortinet solutions, including the FortiGate firewall platform, are powered by the security services developed by FortiGuard Labs. FortiGuard Labs consists of more than 200 expert researchers and analysts around the world. The researchers work with world class, in-house developed tools and technology to discover and study breaking threats. They then update FortiGuard security services to protect against those threats. 

The threat research team has dedicated experts studying every critical area including malware, botnets, mobile, and zero-day vulnerabilities. These critical threat insights are shared through a portal dedicated for FortiGuard and with our threat intelligence partners. Service analysts study malicious code and develop mitigation signatures while technology developers continually update security protection engines globally to combat evolving threats through FortiGuard services. 

FortiGuard Labs uses data collected from more than three million sensors around the globe to protect more than 320,000 customers every day.
