Antispam Service Information
FortiGuard AntiSpam Service filters include FortiIP and FortiSig database. FortiIP is a sender IP reputation database, and FortiSig is a spam signature database containing three types of signatures: FortiSig1, FortiSig2 and FortiSig3.
The FortiGuard Antispam Service uses both a sender IP reputation database and a spam signature database, along with sophisticated spam filtering tools on Fortinet appliances and agents, to detect and block a wide range of spam messages. On FortiGate or FortiMail systems, FortiGuard Antispam Service can dramatically reduce the amount of spam messages that an organization's email servers process. It also enables FortiClient end point security agents to block spam on remote PCs and mobile devices.
Fortinet takes a comprehensive and multi-layered approach and uses a number of techniques to detect and filter spam.
Through the FortiGuard distribution network, FortiGuard AntiSpam service provides two databases, namely FortiIP and FortiSig, as global filters. FortiIP is a sender IP reputation database while FortiSig is a spam signature database. These global filters are constantly updated and they enable our FortiGate, FortiClient and FortiMail products to detect and filter most prevailing spam in the Internet.
Various customized spam filters are provided to compliment the Fortinet's AntiSpam solution on the service delivery units: FortiGate, FortiClient and FortiMail. These customized filters range from banned words filters, local white and black lists of sender email address, heuristic rules, to highly sophisticated techniques such as Bayesian training in FortiMail. See the documentation of respective products for more information.
