How these services help companies in terms of growth and better security?
FortiGuard Labs Cyber threat analysis and threat management and reporting has enabled security professionals to better understand and defend against cyber criminals, malware and advanced threats. Also, when coupled with vulnerability research, IT professionals are armed with critical information for preventing attacks that target susceptible systems and applications.
FortiGuard Labs’ responsible disclosure dictates that a discovered vulnerability be patched before public disclosure. Even without a working patch, a signature for the vulnerability can be generated to prevent intrusions. Once a signature is created, it is put through FortiGuard Labs’ zero-day signature process and assigned a generic name. The goal is to provide protection while disclosing as few details as possible.
As malware numbers have increased exponentially in the recent years, network security vendors have had to find alternate methods for malware detection and mitigation. Fortinet, for example, incorporates more than 150 new security features.

In a typical minute, Fortinet’s FortiGuard Labs will neutralise 15,000 malware programmes, intercept 55,000 spam emails, thwart over 600,000 network intrusion attempts, shut down 94,000 Botnet command and control attempts, and block access requests to 150,000 malicious websites.
