Fortinet Debuts Cloud-Based Sandboxing, IP Reputation
Fortinet unveiled the FortiGuard Labs cloud-based sandboxing and IP reputation services for targeted attacks. The services support the company's FortiGate, FortiCloud, FortiWeb, FortiDDoS and FortiDNS network and application appliances. The sandboxing service uses behavioral attributes to detect malware by executing them within a virtual environment. Suspicious files can be automatically submitted to the new hosted service for further scanning without impacting FortiGate performance. The company also is rolling out a website for status and visibility into scanned results. FortiGuard Labs actively investigates and monitors IPs and manages honeypots to provide intelligence for its FortiGate, FortiWeb and FortiDDoS appliances.
