Fortinet Advanced Threat Protection

Advanced Targeted Attacks (ATA) represent a new and extremely dangerous breed of network threat. Also known as Advanced Persistent Threats (APT), ATAs target specific people or functions within organizations, infiltrate from multiple vectors (fishing attacks, web drive-bys, etc.) and use extensive evasion techniques to remain stealthy for long time periods before exfiltrating data. Traditional simple antivirus signatures and vulnerability approaches are not effective against ATAs.

What makes ATAs truly dangerous, compared to traditional attacks, is their targeted nature. Cybercriminals are strategically picking their marks and doing specific research on those intended victims. They are doing research on you!

To defend against ATAs, Fortinet has developed new FortiOS 5 Enterprise-class Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) capabilities. Using multiple technologies, this advanced anti-malware detection system includes:

  • Fortinet Web Filtering: Uses URL matching and advanced DNS-based web filters to identify potentially harmful websites
  • Fortinet Antivirus Engine: Identify standard AV threats, as well as advanced heuristics and sandboxing to determine malicious behavior
  • FortiGuard Analytics: Enable zero-day malwares to be identified and further analyzed in the cloud
  • FortiGuard Botnet Database: Contains up-to-date information about IP reputations and prevents remote command and control communications

Together with superior industry-validated AV signatures, FortiOS 5 delivers unbeatable multi-layered protection against today’s sophisticated Advanced targeted Attacks.
