Extensive knowledge of the threat landscape combined with the ability to respond quickly at multiple levels is the foundation for providing effective security. Hundreds of researchers at Fortinet FortiGuard Labs scour the cyber landscape every day to discover emerging threats and develop effective countermeasures to protect more than 250,000 Fortinet customers around the world. Protect your organization by blocking access to malicious, hacked, or inappropriate websites with Fortinet FortiGuard web filtering. Web filtering is the first line of defense against web-based attacks. Malicious or hacked websites, a primary vector for initiating attacks, trigger downloads of malware, spyware, or risky content. FortiGuard web filtering is the only web filtering service in the industry that is VBWeb certified for security effectiveness by Virus Bulletin. It blocked 97.7% of direct malware downloads and stopped 83.5% of malware served through all tested methods in Virus Bulletin’s 2015 VBWeb security testing.
The web filtering service is available through Fortinet FortiGate Next Generation Firewall, FortiSandbox, FortiClient, and FortiCache solutions, letting you easily see and control what websites your users are visiting. Every minute of every day FortiGuard Labs processes approximately 43 million URL categorization requests and blocks 160,000 malicious websites. The web filtering service rates over 250 million websites and delivers nearly 1.5 million new URL ratings every week. You can easily manage your protection with the ability to apply targeted and specific policies based on six major categories and nearly 80 micro categories with ratings continuously updated via the Fortinet FortiGuard Distribution Network (FDN).

Web applications and email systems have long been favorite targets of hackers because they have access to valuable information and they are relatively easy to exploit. A successful attack can result in a variety of devastating consequences including financial loss, damage to brand reputation, and loss of customer trust. Most organizations do not recover from a major security breach, making it absolutely critical to protect your users and customers from threats that target applications and email systems.
Fortinet Data Center Application Security solution consists of a robust and integrated set of products to protect against these attacks. We are the only company that delivers a complete single-vendor solution with the proven performance and security effectiveness to meet the increasing demands of today’s data centers. In addition, our application security solutions can be integrated with Fortinet FortiGate next generation firewalls and Fortinet FortiSandbox sandbox for extra defenses against Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs).
The enterprise data center is evolving rapidly with technologies such as virtualization, Software-Defined Networking, and public cloud computing. Trying to apply traditional security to new technologies generally will not be effective. Enterprises need to evaluate their data center initiatives and how they will impact network security to ensure all areas of the data center remain protected. Today’s data centers are dynamic and complex. Security solutions need to be flexible, effective, and easy to manage so they bring order to the chaos instead of adding to it. Fortinet can protect your physical, virtual, and cloud servers with one solution — whether data center, private cloud, or public cloud deployments.
Under constant attack, organizations cannot afford to choose between security and maintaining a high-performance business infrastructure. Your extended enterprise needs proven security that won't compromise performance: from deep within internal segments, to physical and virtual data centers, to dynamic cloud environments. Deploying network security solutions from multiple vendors causes unnecessary complexity and introduces security gaps. The Fortinet Enterprise Firewall Solution delivers industry-leading security effectiveness with unmatched performance capabilities — through one operating system managed within a single pane of glass.
Cloud computing is becoming increasingly popular among enterprises looking to take advantage of the quick deployment, unprecedented scalability, and cost savings. Private cloud infrastructure, including virtualization and Software-Defined Networking (SDN), are rapidly transforming data centers worldwide. At the same time, organizations are rapidly embracing public clouds, both migrating workloads to Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) clouds like AWS and Azure, and adopting Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications. This results in a hybrid cloud and increasingly multi-cloud environment that is truly borderless for your enterprise users, data, and applications.
Evolving your infrastructure means your security must evolve as well, to protect your enterprise regardless of where your infrastructure and applications are running. If your security can’t keep up with the agile public, private, and hybrid cloud environments of today, gaps in protection will occur. There are a number of deployment methods being used today that require scalable security capable of keeping up with elastic workloads. Fortinet provides comprehensive security for private, public, and hybrid deployments before, during, and after migration — with one solution.
At the heart of Fortinet data center security are the FortiGate data center firewalls which are purpose-built FortiASIC processors that enable this extremely high level of performance. These custom content and network processors provide near-wire speed switching, routing, and stateful firewalling. The network processors eliminate the need for legacy Layer-2 switches and routers within the data center. Instead, FortiGate takes over and performs network segmentation, switching, routing, and network security, all while reducing network complexity.
Furthermore, our integrated architecture provides extremely high throughput and exceptionally low latency, minimizing packet processing while accurately scanning the data for threats. Custom FortiASIC processors deliver content inspection at multi-gigabit speeds. The only way for a network security platform to scale is via purpose-built ASICs to accelerate specific parts of the packet processing and content scanning function. FortiGate technology utilizes Optimum Path Processing (OPP) to optimize the different resources available in packet flow. The FortiASIC can scale to 500 Gbps of firewall throughput independent of packet size while maintaining a high number of sessions and extremely low latency.
FortiWeb provides integration with leading third-party vulnerability scanners including Acunetix, HP WebInspect, IBM AppScan, Qualys and WhiteHat to provide dynamic virtual patches to security issues in application environments. Vulnerabilities found by the scanner are quickly and automatically turned into security rules by FortiWeb to protect the application until developers can address them in the application code. Quarantined IPs HTTP Traffic service protects you from known attack sources like botnets, spammers, anonymous proxies, and sources known to be infected with malicious software.
FortiWeb Security Service is designed just for FortiWeb including items such as application layer signatures, malicious robots, suspicious URL patterns and web vulnerability scanner updates. Finally, FortiWeb offers FortiGuard’s top-rated antivirus engine that scans all file uploads for threats that can infect your servers or other network elements. FortiWeb provides maximum flexibility in supporting your virtual and hybrid environments. The virtual versions of FortiWeb support all the same features as Fortinet hardware-based devices and work with all the top hypervisors.
