The integrated Anti-virus
use a signature-based database. This means that when a virus or type of malware is known to Fortinet, it is also recognised by the FortiGate. This keeps you protected against both old and new viruses and malware. The firewall will also start recognising patterns, allowing it to make its own associations with modified versions of viruses and malware. In addition, Fortinet is a partner of the Cyber Threat Alliance
. That is an organisation with several companies specialising in cybersecurity such as: Cisco, Avast, McAfee and Palo Alto. They team up to identify and prevent cyber attacks. This way, the database stays up-to-date and you are assured of high-quality security.
