FortiGuard cloud-delivered web security services provide comprehensive protection to address threats including ransomware, credential-theft, phishing, spam, and other web-borne attacks.

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.

Video Filtering

Offers the industry’s first advanced video filtering service. It provides the same level of granular filtering for YouTube as it does for other web traffic, including granular controls based on channels beyond categories. This ability to apply granular video filtering controls helps organizations achieve stronger regulatory compliance.

Anti-Botnet & C2

Add anti-botnet technology to block unauthorized attempts to communicate with compromised remote servers for both receiving malicious commands and extracting information. This prevents botnets and other threats from communicating with command & control servers to exfiltrate data or download malware.

DNS Filtering

DNS filtering provides full visibility into DNS traffic while blocking high-risk domains including malicious newly registered domains (NRDs) and parked domains. It protects against sophisticated DNS-based threats including DNS tunneling, DNS infiltration, C2 server identification, and DGAs.
