  • Full lifecycle automated detection and protection against known and unknown file-based threats in near real time 
  • AI-driven cloud sandbox, advanced antivirus (AV), anti-malware, and ransomware defense enhanced with innovative capabilities like content disarm and reconstruction, mobile malware protection, virus outbreak prevention, and more.
  • Consistent detection and context-aware prevention across hybrid deployments for networks, endpoints, clouds, and applications. 
  • Our market leading content security services are natively integrated across our Fabric and can be added to multiple products including web application firewalls (WAFs), email security, web proxy, endpoint protection (EPP), application delivery controller (ADC), and cloud access security broker (CASB)

FortiGuard Content Security Services Portfolio

FortiGuard Antivirus (AV)

FortiGuard Antivirus delivers automated updates that protect against the latest polymorphic attacks, viruses, spyware, and other content-level threats. Based on patented Content Pattern Recognition Language (CPRL), the anti-malware engine is designed to prevent known and previously unknown malware variants.

FortiGuard Cloud Sandbox

FortiGuard Cloud Sandbox is SaaS-based sandboxing that uses a multi-stage process to pre-filter and then fully-execute unknown code to identify new attacks. New actionable intelligence and preventions are generated for AV, URL, DNS, C&C, and IPS, then shared across the Fortinet Security Fabric and ecosystem. This automated, near-real-time threat protection can be combined with our PaaS, hardware, and virtual machine sandbox deployment options.

FortiGuard Antispam

FortiGuard Antispam dramatically reduces spam volume at the perimeter, controlling email attacks and infections. This provides much greater protection than standard real-time blacklists
