FortiEDR Meets Today’s Endpoint Security Requirements
Learn more about today’s requirements for endpoint security, as well as our unique detect and defuse capability. Also, understand how we prevent attacks by extending visibility and security across endpoints and workloads, no matter where they are.
Security Fabric Integration
FortiEDR leverages the Fortinet Security Fabric architecture and integrates with many Security Fabric components including FortiGate, FortiSandbox, and FortiSIEM.
The FortiEDR connector enables the sharing of endpoint threat intelligence and application information with FortiGate. FortiEDR management can instruct enhanced response actions for FortiGate, such as suspending or blocking an IP address following an infiltration attack.
FortiEDR shares endpoint threat intelligence and discovered assets with FortiNAC. With syslog sharing, FortiEDR management can instruct enhanced response actions for FortiNAC, such as isolating a device.
FortiEDR native integration with FortiSandbox automatically submits files to the sandbox in the cloud, supporting real-time event analysis and classification. Additionally, it also shares threat intelligence with FortiSandbox.
FortiEDR sends events and alerts to FortiSIEM for threat analysis and forensic investigation. FortiSIEM can also utilize JSON and REST APIs to further integrate with FortiEDR.
- FortiGuard Labs
FortiEDR native integration with FortiGuard Labs allows up-to-date intelligence, supporting real-time incident classification to enable accurate incident response playbook activation.
