Using FortiCWP

FortiCWP classifies data as either data at rest or traffic data. Data at rest is data uploaded onto the cloud application before it has been linked with FortiCWP, while traffic data is any data uploaded after FortiCWP has started monitoring the cloud application.

Data at rest

You can run scans on the data in your cloud platforms to determine their contents. Depending on the policies you set, FortiCWP will classify this data as either sensitive or non-sensitive data. This can be seen in the Documents section for all cloud applications.

If you don't run a manual scan, FortiCWP will scan files on an individual basis whenever a user accesses the file.

For more information on policies, see Policy.
