Setting AV service level

FortiADC's AV service relies on the system's AV engine and signature databases. The AV engine is upgraded whenever new functions are added. The Updated daemon is responsible for updating the AV engine and the signature databases.

The system offers three types of AV signature databases, namely, Normal, Extended, and Extreme. They represent different levels of AV services. In order for FortiADC to provide you with the level of AV service that you desire, you must choose the right signature database.

Configure AV service level from the GUI

To choose a signature database from the GUI,

  1. From the navigation bar, click Network Security>Anti Virus.
  2. Click the Settings tab.
  3. Select a default DB as described in Setting AV service level.
  4. Click Save when done.

Setting AV service level

Settings Description
Normal

The regular virus database, which includes “In the Wild” viruses and most commonly seen viruses on the network. It provides regular protection.

Extended

The extended virus database, which includes both “In the Wild” viruses and a large collection of zoo viruses that are no longer seen in recent virus studies. It provides enhanced security protection.

Extreme

The extreme virus database, which includes both “In the Wild” viruses and all known zoo viruses that are no longer seen in recent virus studies. It provides the highest level of security protection.

Configure AV service level from the Console

To set the default signature database from Console, execute the following command:

config security antivirus settings

set default-db {normal | extended | extreme}

end
