Fortinet FortiMail is an email security gateway product that monitors email messages on behalf of an organization to identify messages that contain malicious content, including spam, malware and phishing attempts. When Fortinet FortiMail detects malicious content in an email, it stops that email from reaching its recipient, thus preventing the associated attack from succeeding. For most organizations, the majority of threats against them are email-based, so having an email security gateway has become a necessity to reduce the number of successful attacks that occur.


Security capabilities:
The basic security capabilities typically provided by email security gateways are all supported by Fortinet FortiMail: antivirus, antimalware, antiphishing and antispam. In addition to these capabilities, Fortinet FortiMail also provides all the advanced capabilities offered by more sophisticated email security gateway products. This includes executable sandboxing and threat intelligence feed use — which both help improve malicious content detection accuracy — as well as data loss prevention (DLP) and email encryption, which can prevent unauthorized exfiltration of the organization’s sensitive data via outbound emails.
