FortiGuard Attack Surface Security Service
Continually assess, rate, and elevate your security posture
The FortiGuard Attack Surface Security Service, integrated into FortiGate Next-Generation Firewalls, continuously monitors and assesses your organization’s Security Fabric infrastructure and controls in place to provide an overall rating of your security posture.
Unpatched vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and less-than-optimal settings, all affect the scoring for each control. This, in turn, influences overall scores for your organization. Visibility across your attack surface, facilitated through your Fabric infrastructure, extends to IoT devices connected to your environment.
The rating aspects of the service apply to all devices in your Security Fabric. They use real-time monitoring to analyze your Security Fabric deployment, identify potential vulnerabilities, and highlight best practices (that can be used to improve the security and performance of your network), and calculate Security Fabric scores.
The service provides three main security scores: Security Posture, Fabric Coverage, and Optimization - which provide an executive summary of the three largest areas of security focus in the Security Fabric.
The FortiGuard Attack Surface Security Service provides a single view of the organization’s overall security posture, compared with best practices and accepted security standards. It highlights the effectiveness of security investments over time and helps security leaders understand logical next steps in the development of their security architectures. The service also provides an easy consumable format to keep executive management and the board of directors informed about high-level trends.
The service assesses and rates your organization’s security posture against Fortinet Security Best Practices, CIS controls, and PCI DSS frameworks. The service helps security leaders understand logical next steps for improving security postures.
The service provides NOC and SOC teams with an ongoing technical view of configuration issues and vulnerabilities across the Fortinet Security Fabric, allowing for remediation of issues before they can result in a security incident.
The service discovers and identifies IoT devices connected to your network to understand the risk they pose to your organization.
