Fortinet adds cloud-based sandboxing and IP reputation services
Posted on 01 March 2013.
At RSA Conference 2013 in San Francisco, Fortinet announced that the companyís FortiGuard Labs has launched new cloud-based sandboxing and IP reputation services that are designed to help protect against advanced persistent threats.

The FortiGuard cloud-based sandboxing service uses behavioral attributes to detect malware by executing them within a virtual environment. This serves as an additional protection layer that complements the FortiGateís existing antivirus engine and its inline lightweight sandbox.

Suspicious files can be submitted automatically to the new hosted service for further scanning without significantly impacting a FortiGateís performance. In addition, FortiCloud has added a new feature that serves as the online sandboxing portal, which provides detailed status and visibility into the scanned results.

FortiGuard Labs continually investigates and monitors IPís that are compromised or behaving abnormally. The FortiGuard IP Reputation Service uses a number of different techniques, including historical analysis, honeypots and botnet analysis to provide immediate protection against wide scale automated attacks. The service also continuously learns from a global footprint of threat sensors, tracking malicious events to IP addresses in real time.

The new FortiGuard Labs services provide additional protection capabilities for the companyís FortiGate, FortiCloud, FortiWeb, FortiDDoS and FortiDNS network and application security platforms.
