The FortiGuard Device Security suite offers advanced security technologies optimized to monitor and protect IoT and OT devices against device and vulnerability-based attack tactics. These services integrate with our OT- and IoT-centric security solutions.

Quickly stop threats with AI-powered, coordinated protection

All FortiGuard security services are natively integrated into the Fortinet Security Fabric. This enables fast, coordinated detection and enforcement across the entire attack surface. Risk is continually assessed and the Security Fabric automatically adjusts to counter the latest known and unknown threats in real time. It is able to close security gaps with context-aware, consistent security policies for users and applications in hybrid deployments across the network, endpoints, and clouds.

IPS shield


FortiGuard IPS provides near-real-time intelligence with thousands of intrusion prevention rules to detect and block known and zero-day threats before they reach your devices. The service is augmented by our in-house research team, credited with more than 1,000 zero-day detections.

OT shield

Operational Technology (OT)

The FortiGuard Industrial Security Service continuously updates signatures to identify and police most of the common ICS/OT/SCADA protocols for granular visibility and control. Additional vulnerability protection is provided for applications and devices from the major ICS manufacturers.

IoT shield

Device Protection

The FortiGuard IoT Detection Service continuously updates signatures to identify and monitor most of the common IoT protocols for granular visibility and control. Additional vulnerability protection is provided for applications and devices from the major IoT manufacturers. Furthermore, unpatched IoT devices can be virtually patched via IPS rule until the device patch can be applied.
