Fortinet’s advanced Antivirus technology uses a combination of signature and heuristic detection engines to provide multi-layered, real-time protection against a multitude of attacks at the desktop and the network gateway. Ultra-high system performance is achieved using the integrated FortiASIC Content Processor (CP) to accelerate both virus file scanning and heuristics/anomaly detection.
Antivirus Accelerated: Scalable performance and models from SOHO to multi-gigabit antivirus protection ASIC-based hardware design Automatic updates of antivirus signatures from FortiGuard Antivirus service Inspects content within SMTP, POP3, IMAP, FTP, HTTP and Instant Messenger protocols Inspection of VPN (IPSec and SSL) content Bi-directional content filtering Compressed file format support: tar, gzip, rar, lzh, iha, cab, arj, zip, bzip2, upx, msc, fsg, and aspack Centralized management and reporting of hundreds of FortiGate systems Implements in Transparent, NAT and Route modes
MSSP Core Network Security
Deployed at the core of large enterprise or service provider to block virus attacks from email, web and FTP traffic from entering or leaving the network. Utilizing policy-based routing or content-switching can deliver scalable, multi-gigabit performance by redirecting specific traffic to a FortiGate security appliance cluster for advanced scanning. This deployment configuration also eliminates many of the inline deployment concerns.
Deployed as part of a layered security design, FortiGate best-of-breed security systems provide application-layer protection against content-based threats that may bypass the gateway firewall.
Deployed to protect public facing Web, FTP, Email and other application servers deployed on DMZ segments of your existing firewall. Fortinet Advanced Antivirus technology detects and blocks virus infections at a fraction of the cost of traditional software that need to install on each server. Fortinet purpose built antivirus solution offloads virus scanning overhead without impacting server performance.
Deployed as the network security gateway, a single FortiGate security system can secure multiple DMZ’s along with the corporate network from viruses and other content-based attacks. Fortinet’s security zone and virtual domain features offer a lower total cost of ownership to enterprises needing to secure multiple networks.
