Threat Map

The FortiView>Security>Threat Map page depicts the security threats to your FortiADC devices in real time. The darker part of the world map represents the part of the world at night, whereas the lighter areas are parts of the world in daylight. The device icons represent your FortiADC appliances deployed at various locations in the world. The shooting stars represent the live attacks on your FortiADC appliances as they occur.

The table at the bottom of the map lists the live threats as they occur, with the following information about each threat:

  • Location—The country and the IP address where an attack comes come.
  • Threat—The name or brief description of a threat
  • Severity (score)—The level of severity of a threat, which can be high, medium, or low.
  • Time—The date and time when an attack occurs.

The severity of threats are color-coded:

  • High — Red
  • Medium — Yellow
  • Low — White.

The map and the table complement each other, showing you when the attacks occur, pinpointing where they come from, and telling you the nature and severity of the attacks so that you can make well-informed decision as to how to react to those threats.
