Two new, cloud-based services from Fortinet are set to block Advanced Persistent Threats and other targeted attacks. Potential malware is detected through a sandboxing service, and for threats from the Internet, Fortiguard Labs offers an IP reputation service.
In addition to Fortinet’s signature-based antivirus engine and Inline Lightweight Sandbox, Fortinet now offers a cloud sandboxing service . Possible malware is identified by its behavior and eliminated within a virtual environment.
If a suspicious file requires an in-depth check, it can be automatically forwarded to the hosted service. According to Fortinet, this process has little effect on the performance of the Fortigate appliance used.
An overview of the status information and scan results is provided by an online sandboxing portal within the so-called Forticloud. Fortinet responds to the precarious situation that the targeted malware attacks can barely be handled with signatures alone.
Identify dangers already on the internet
Christian Vogt, Regional Director for Germany and the Netherlands at Fortinet, emphasizes: “The novel and highly intelligent threats we are facing today are a challenge for both IT staff and network security vendors.” Only with the help of additional, more dynamic Security measures could be taken to combat the threats at all levels as quickly as possible.
Against this background, Fortinet also offers a new IP Reputation Service. The Fortiguard Labs continually investigate and monitor IP addresses that are at risk or that behave abnormally.
The service extends the protection of the Fortigate, Fortiweb and FortiDDoS platforms with various techniques, such as historical analysis, honeypots and anti-botnet platforms. The service continuously learns from the global nature of the threat sensors and tracks malicious events in real-time to the IP addresses.
More information about the Fortiguard IP Reputation Services can be found on the Fortinet website, details on the Sandboxing service coming soon.

In addition to the BNP Paribas, Coca-Cola, Best Buy, and more, and obviously a lot of boring businesses, the old school is learning to “run like Google” with the help of Google.
Even so, Google has avoided its biggest assets. With the question “Why Google?” The company responded, “Easy setup. Easy to run. Built-in security.” Well, lower on the same page that the company mentions data, analyzes and improves data centers, but they are stuck at the edge of security and price, as if they are relatively different. They do not.
