Security Fabric APIs

Integrate with the Fortinet Security Fabric

Fortinet Security Fabric Enables Digital Innovation
Fabric Solution Security Fabric API

Technology alliance partners integrate with the Fortinet Security Fabric via application programming interfaces (APIs) to actively collect and share threat and mitigation information to improve threat intelligence, enhance overall threat awareness, and broaden end-to-end threat response. 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 Security 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.

Integrate and Automate with APIs

The Fortinet Security Fabric provides the following categories of APIs
