Advanced Threat Protection Solution

The Fortinet Advanced Threat Protection Solution (ATP) in testing is a multi-component solution:
  • FortiClient: Its role is to ensure that all objects that reach an endpoint are inspected with its threat prevention technologies to block as many identifiable threats as possible – with the option to send the remainder to FortiSandbox for additional analysis – while either holding them before install, or quarantining them as necessary afterwards, based on results.    
  • FortiGate: Stops as many network-borne threats as possible with its threat prevention technologies before submitting remaining objects to FortiSandbox for further analysis.  It also serves as a key element to quickly mitigate previously unknown threats that are identified by FortiSandbox.
  • FortiMail: FortiMail is an effective, high performance secure email gateway that applies the threat intelligence of FortiGuard Labs to block spam, malware and advanced threats.  It also includes integrated DLP, encryption and archiving for a complete email security solution available as a physical or virtual appliance, SaaS, or managed security service.   
  • FortiSandbox:  The FortiSandbox uses instrumented VMs (as well as various pre- and post-filters) to run and analyze unknown objects, assign risk ratings and provide threat intelligence to speed response to previously unknown threats.  It can obtain those objects directly off the wire, or from file share locations, manual submissions from security staff and other integrated Fortinet devices such as those above.
